I have been a little out of touch lately for my Sunday posts. I don't always make it on Sunday, but I try to get here as I can. We've been homeless for a while, so while I don't use it as an excuse, it does make my life more stressful. Amongst all the stress and dealing with family and friends, I try to write. I can't say I spend as much time at is as I can, but I make the effort. I encourage other writers to write - those I work with online and those in my writing groups. But I am getting discouraged lately, and I feel a bit bad about it.
So I decided I'm going to focus more on goals, like getting something ready for a contest or submitting a query or something I can promise myself each week. I'm hoping this will help me make more time in my day to make these people in my head quiet down a bit while I write down their thoughts and conversations. I'm hoping you guys could help inspire me a little. Have you ever had times when you really just couldn't get it together and make your writing happen? Any tips or tricks that help someone who's really stressed start feeling creative again? I'm open to any ideas you may have, and then some.
Thanks for your help,
