Broken Writer?

Guys I think my inner writer is broken. I set up this perfectly good outline for a new story, was excited about it and then it died. I have yet to write a single word beyond the outline.

I just read over it before writing this post and it seems sturdy enough to build off of. Yet there must be something wrong with it cause I have no desire to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard as the case may be.

Is my inner writer broken? Is there something wrong with me? I have been writing and I haven’t managed once to put “The End” on any of my projects. Even my blog here lately has been mostly quotes with maybe my thoughts written around it. I haven’t had the energy or the moxie to write anything. My journal hasn’t been written in much either.

I’ m starting to worry if maybe my writing days are over before I feel they really even had a chance. Or maybe my inner writer bugged out cause she was sick of me not writing. I try to keep these posts upbeat and inspire both myself and you guys. Just today isn’t an upbeat cheery writing day.

I am attaching a copy of my outline. Maybe a fresh set of eyes will help. Also I have never tried the whole google docs sharing thing.

Quote of the Day

Stress can bog us down. Sometimes if we just take a deep breath and remember “we’ve been here and we faced it” it helps calm the fear of stress. Lately stress has been getting the better of me. Today is my deep breath and reminder that I’ve got this.

Cheers, james

Journaling 

I have been spending more and less time with my journals lately. My commonplace/everything journal is almost empty. I get an idea and it doesn’t seem to make it into my journal. On the other hand my personal journal is getting more attention. Dreams, thoughts and life take up its creamy pages. 

On the other hand my blogging ideas seem to have dried up. I have started at least four posts over the last six months and abandoned them. I have been battling Stress for the last few months and it has taken a toll on this blog, my writing and me. Putting these words down, I can feel something shift inside my head. Maybe I can finally pull myself from this hole and get back into regular schedule and writing. 

Cheers, james
