Having a hard time motivating myself today!

Why is it so hard to write sometimes? I’m usually the last person to say this, but for some reason today I’m having a hard time. And yes, even as I write this I’m saying to myself, you’re writing this blog entry, why can’t you write your book? Sometimes writing with another character’s voice is challenging because I’m not sure what that character wants to say right now. I just finished editing a trailer, so I think a part of it is the fact that I used up a lot of my creative juices, but if I want to finish this book in the next month or two I need to write 1 to 2 thousand words a day. I’ve been hitting those numbers for the last two weeks, but today, I’m stuck. I’m sleepy. I want to take a nap, but whenever I take a nap I end up not being able to sleep at night. Blah, blah, blah. I’m a big complainy-box today. Maybe I should take a nap and then try and get some writing done. Wish me luck!


  1. Awww, I hope you're able to get your mind back on track, Becca! I'm soooo looking forward to Ripper, but at the same time I don't want you to rush. Honestly, take as much time as you need to give us a story that's just as good, if not better than it's predecessors, even if it means that it doesn't get released this September. If you're having a hard time getting motivated, just remember that all your fans are rooting for you!(:

  2. Thanks Totoroftw!! Reading your comment seriously made my day :-) I'm cranking through Ripper even as we speak! I'm really excited to get it out there. I really appreciate your kind and encouraging words! You rock :-)
