It has now been a solid seven months since I've written anything new. This has to be my biggest dry spell EVER. Many of you know that I've been through a lot of personal (real life) stuff, so it's no surprise to me that my creative well is pretty empty.
Recently, I have felt the urge to get back to it, but I still lack the mental energy. This scares me. It's been so long, I'm wondering if any progress as a writer I've made the last five years will have gone down the drain after such a long absence.
Having finished a trilogy, I also have to admit part of this is a bit of a end-of-project-letdown. You finish a huge project you've been working on for years, and you're left wondering "now what?"
So as I head into September, and the seasons begin to change, my hope is that I overcome this massive writer's block.
