The mental break through

19 Oct

I used to run religiously a few years ago. When I first started training, it was odd, because I found myself hitting mental blocks through my long runs. I wasn’t physically exhausted, but there were times when I had to fight myself all the way to the finish line. Not a force, but more of running through quicksand. My body was fine, but my mind wasn’t in the game but I was determined. Determined to keep fighting, to keep training, to keep moving, until I finished.

There are times when I feel the same way about writing. There are some days when it is smooth sailing and I can push out 6k words, no problem. Other days, I struggle to write 100 before I hit the mental wall. I feel every writer goes through this but I can’t force myself to write whenever my heart isn’t in it. So the past week and a half, I took a mini-vaca and gave my mind time to relax and re-cooperate from working a day job, and two small odd literary jobs. My love is writing, my passion is writing, and although I may hit mental walls, I will break through them. I will write through them.

On another note…. I really love the way that Weak for Him is coming together. I am halfway through with draft 1 and next week I am dedicating all of my extra time towards finishing draft 1. I am determined and I can’t really think about anything more. I will let it sit for a week, throw it into grammarly, pre-edit, and then my goal is to send it to an editor and have it returned by the week of Thanksgiving. 🙂 I hope to have my arcs ready before Christmas and want to hit that shiny green publish button on January 15th! Starting the new year off on a good foot!

Just checking goodreads not too long ago, already have almost 200 TBR! How cool is that?
