Sometimes writing will make you want to pull your hair out. It will scramble your life, isolate you from your pals and fam, and even your own sanity! It’s true! Creating something isn’t an easy thing to do, and that’s what writing a novel is all about- creating something.
If you are deep in the caverns of writerly stress, take a step back for a bit. Go do something else. Clear your head.But I think the most important thing to do is to remember why you started writing in the first place…because it is fun. One author once said that if it stops being fun, that’s when it’s time to throw in the towel. We begin writing stories because we love to do it and that is the space you need to return to if you want to clear the negativity and pressure that comes from meeting a deadline or pleasing the world with your words.
If you’re stuck- write for YOU. You will be surprised at how the story begins to flow once more.
