#WhitWritesHerNovel: Did I lose my Writing Steam?

So, I haven’t sat down to write in a while…possibly a couple weeks. Between being sort of busy, and just not having the motivation to do it, I just can’t get my thoughts together.  I feel sort of bad because I love writing and I love my novel, this is a dream for me and I really want to see it come to pass; however, I don’t know when it will happen.  I wanted to self publish by the end of the year, but I keep wondering if I will make that deadline or if it is too unrealistic due to …..life! Lol

I’m hoping with me having to be at home this weekend due to my job, I can isolate some time to get in some writing.  Once I get down and get in my zone, I can make a lot of progress, I just have to find the motivation to get to that point.  On some days it feels like I have completely hit a wall and there is nothing left for me to put into it. Even with the help of charting my scenes, sometimes it feels a bit forced.  I don’t want to have to force myself to write.  If I have to force myself to write or seem like I am just writing just to put something down, I just shut down my computer.  There is no point in trying to write if it is going to be crap.  I think this week I will focus on reading some of these novels that I need to finish, hopefully to find some motivation to get me over this dreadful hump…. 🙂

what about you? What do you do to find that spark of motivation when you feel all is lost?
