I Feel Like I Hit the Wall. Or More Like the Wall Hit Me.

The past few weeks have sapped my energy. My time has been so full with work or family stuff that when I finally get some time to myself at home (whenever that is) my body and brain are so tired that I want nothing to do but veg out on a TV or hit up a good nap. Guys, it’s been a struggle. I know there are people out there who are just as busy or busier than I am and they still manage to carve out time to write. I don’t know if I’m managing my time poorly (a distinct possibility) or I’m busier than I think.

On top of this, my son has been fighting a nasty cold and cough that keeps him up at night for the past few nights, and last night I started to get my own head cold going on. My body is worn out. My head feels like it’s in a bucket. We still have a few things we need to do to get all out stuff in order for Christmas just a few days away.

I’ve hit a wall. My brain has thrown in the towel and I feel so unproductive. I only have a couple of chapters to show for my book and a good amount of time I’m sure I could have put towards getting some words out. For the time being, maybe I need to take a little siesta from writing to get some of my get-go back. The desire is there. I still have story to get out, but when you feel this worn out its easy to push it to the back burner and think you’ll get to it later.

Do you have similar problems getting to sit down and get some writing done? What has helped you in the past? What hasn’t worked? Are you on top of things and think I’m a big ninny? I’d love to hear from you anyway.

  1. I can relate to this. I felt drained when I was working and went to school. It felt like I never had the energy to write. Now I have a little more time to focus on my writing. Soon you’ll find time to focus on what you love to do.

    1. I think most writers have hit this point along their journey. I keep getting ideas for things and have no idea when I’ll be able to make it happen, but I’m not giving it up. Everything in its time. I appreciate your comment. I hope you continue to have your renewed focus on your writing.
