The Reason I am not writing is not because I can’t think of anything to write, or that I suddenly feel blocked and without thought. It’s not because the story has hit a wall, or my character’s having a bad day. The Reason I am not writing is because the more I write, the more I realize how crappy the story is.
I am not pitying myself, I am not looking for reassurance or advice, I am only stating the facts as I see them in this moment.
Days pass, this shall too. Writing takes its toll and some days it makes sense to close the notebook and put the pen back in the drawer.
