A frustrating week of writing
I just had a very frustrating week of writing.
In fact, much of it has been devoted to non writing activities. First, I’ve had a series of meetings to attend and these always cut into my writing time.
Second, I’ve been busy tidying up the mess in our driveway. We had a massive storm here just over a week ago and a large 40 year old gum tree came down in our driveway. I’ve been busy chain sawing up the wood. I guess we’ll have plenty of firewood in the coming few years.
Third, I was discouraged by my critiquing group at a seminar last week and have hit a brick wall as a result. I was very excited about rewriting my novel in the first person. It seemed to be going so well, yet everyone was so critical and told me that it just wasn’t working.
Discouragement hit me big time. I’ve done no more on it for the last week. I sometimes feel like giving up.
Can any of my readers offer me any encouragement, or clues on how to get going again?
In the meantime – a few photos of the mess in my driveway.
