I thought baking a cake would be fun and get me motivated. (Go to my twitter page here to see a picture of the cake or atleast two slices of it to see what it turned out like). But I was wrong. Instead, I've just got yummy cake inside of me with no motivation.
This has been one of the longest writing slumps that I've ever gone through. I tend to go through them during winter when it's dark, cold and I have to study. They only last a few days though. This has lasted about two weeks now. And it's depressing. I last wrote something about a week and a half ago and it was something that I didn't even like.
This is different from Writer's Block. WB is like trying to write and rubbish coming out. Slumps are not wanting to write but having the ideas in your head. Slumps are basically lazy times for writers. That's how I put it.
I've tried everything to get out of this slump but nothing is working. I'm not sleep deprived and I'm not busy. In fact, I have all the time to write a novel in a week but I'm just not in the mood. No, I'm in the mood but I just can't settle on a project. There's too much taking place in my mind for me to cope at the moment.
And for some really weird reason, I really want to go for a drive through an empty country road. It sucks when you don't live in the country.
So I'm just gonna go get some college work done and then I think I might try and pull some painful words out of me. I hope it works.
Have you ever gone through a writing slump? I'd love to know.
