When I coasted over to Brandilyn Collins’ Forensics and Faith blog today I spent longer there than I expected. Some days I skim a lot of blogs (I’m not admitting to how many), gathering up tidbits that are meaningful to me and hurrying past items that aren’t. I stayed to read thoroughly and then re-read her post, “Five Reasons Why the Unpublished Can Stop Writing“. I recommend you hasten over and read it for yourself. It’s meant for those who have yet to publish a book, but I think it speaks to all writers.
Here’s a peek at what she says: “A halt to writing is part of the journey. I stopped writing numerous times during the ten years I worked to be published in fiction. Once I even vowed I’d never go back.” This is from someone who now has at least twenty published books. It’s worth reading. You’ll feel so much better about those dry spells when you’re lambasting yourself for not writing. Go check it out here!
