  • Mood:

It occurs to me that I may be somewhat burned out on writing.

I have penned over 75000 words across eight stories since January. That is a lot of words for me in a very short period of time.

And that may be one reason why I can't get any momentum up for this new story. It might not be that there's something wrong with the outline or the story itself; it might just be that my brain is tired.

So. At this point, I'm not going to sweat that story. I have another one I can sub to the antho I had in mind for it, and if this one gets written before the deadline, that's fine, but it's not an absolute necessity. Meanwhile, I have four more outlines to gin up for June, and Hook for two of them. So that's next on my plate.

Outlines keep the Writer Brain engaged without overtaxing it, I think. So, at this point, I think that's what I'm going to do: concentrate on the outlines and mentally prep for June.
