Tuesday's Tinted Ink

Flickr CC Photo: Black Rain: This is how I feel
Hey beautiful guys and dolls.

I will admit. I don't feel very beautiful right now. My personal life has over taken my writing life. I don't feel inspired and...

I. Don't. Want. To. Write.

I'm sorry. I'm very overwhelmed at the moment.

I'm sure you've noticed I've not been around for a while.


I'm asking for advice.

I need it...


  1. I think if you're not inspired to write, it's okay to take a break. I find that reading a really good book or watching a great movie gets me into the writing spirit more than anything else. Other people's creativity can be very inspiring! Hang in there!

  2. I agree that it's ok to take a break. But go do something else, so you don't continually think about writing or not writing. For me it's my horses.
    The other suggestion is to write some flash fiction. Find a site that gives prompts, or flop open a dictionary and randomly point. Then write the fastest, crappiest story you've ever written - and give yourself permission for it to be total crap. You never know what will come out. My first flash fiction ever actually won me $20 and then turned into a NaNoWriMo idea and just may be the first book that I publish. All from "white picket fence". And my mc is an 11yo black boy, none of which describe me. It was just random flowing with no purpose. Don't write for a goal, just write.
    Good luck!

  3. Go do something else that brings you joy. Go do something new. Don't stress you don't want to write though. I went through that for six months. It's just a season and the urge will return.
