I’m having a hard time writing. Not to say, I haven’t been writing (I have), but, it has been difficult. Writer’s block has been plaguing me for the better part of a month, only it’ not even writer’s block. It’s just laziness. Laziness and fear, I think. I mean, I have been wanting to sit down and just hammer out pages, but my brain is too good at discovering distractions. It has been a lot easier to literally write, so, I’ve found myself scribbling stuff down in a notebook, rather that opening up a word document, and dealing with keyboards and spell-checks and stuff. But then, I’ve got all this stuff in a notebook I need to transcribe, and that doesn’t sound fun either. Needless to say, I’m in some sort of funk. I think that’s why I’m doing this. Often times, these stupid little blog posts motivate me to get work done. I don’t know how, nor do I claim to know how; I just know that they do. Sometimes.
So here’s the post. It’s similar to one I did a week back, only this time, I’ve typed everything out first. Before, I rambled for a bit, and then transcribed those ramblings, and now, I’m writing some shit, and reading that shit to you, for some reason. I don’t know… I thought it would be fun.
Updates, on writing and such:
I’m on the third book of the Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay, and, like Catching Fire, I’m struggling through it. Before that, I finished the seventh Harry Potter book for the first time. I still haven’t seen the sixth or seventh movies. I’m behind, I realize. I am still writing that young adult book. My little brother Evan has sent me sketches of some of my characters, and they look really good. I just need to get a chapter up here onto my blog, and then I will start posting those drawings, so look out for that.
