Down with the Writer Day…

I’m having one of those aching writer days. I imagine we all have them. While I know there are so many things that make writers different from one another, I am sure this “cloud” is something that all of us feel the same way.

But for some reason the message in this video is helping. At the moment I am struggling. Every time I sit down to write I think “Why are you doing this you crazy insane person! You have a hundred boxes of your last book just lying on the floor there and now you want another hundred boxes? Are you nuts?!” The worst part is that it’s true – what on EARTH am I going to do with these books? Well… For now I’m going to give myself permission to stop worrying about them and just keep writing…

Thanks Nadine,
This morning, I’ve just waked up feeling like crap… because my story was not going where I wanted her to go. So I was doubting myself and indulging on self pity probably too.
Because I’m a lazy writer apprentice, I work by best on deadlines and I’ve decided to challenge myself. So I’ve entered a “concours” to write a novel in French (much easier for me than English). I don’t care if I win. (Of course, I want to win who I’m kidding!)
To be honest, like every writer, I just want to write something that I can be proud to let people read and make them smile and forget the everyday worry just for a few minutes…
So while I was getting depress, I saw you friend request on Goodreads and I’ve been visited your blog and seen this video. It’s a great one. Almost as if I receive a pat on the shoulder asking me to keep going. Thanks for sharing and listening.
