I’m feeling Spike; enough, I’m done.
I’ve not written fiction in three weeks. This isn’t particularly unusual and I’ve had dry spells before, but this feels different. As in I-don’t-even-want-to-write-fanfic different.
Nothing is sparking my imagination. Not reading, not watching TV, not trawling Tumblr for my favourite ‘ships. There’s absolutely bugger all in my tank.
Am I depressed? I don’t think so, though it can be hard to tell. But I’m embracing other creative outlets, especially crochet, where the ideas are coming thick and fast.
So maybe I’m just done writing?
Can I be done writing?
Maybe. Maybe I need a longer break. For the moment, I’m grabbing hold of this tweet from Ann Aquirre:
Some controversial advice: If writing becomes a vampire demon sucking the blood & life out of you?
It’s OK to take a break or even quit.
I give you permission to say, “This no longer makes me happy.”
Here’s a secret. You can start again later. Take care of yourself first.
