Stuck in a Rut

Since the holidays ended, I have had a rather difficult time fully bouncing back. It’s not that I have done nothing, that’s not the case. I have started streaming again with more consistency. My writing routine is slowly bouncing back. But I still feel like I am treading water, or stuck in a rut. It […]

NaNoWriMo Final

So I mentioned in another writing post that I was attempting to do NaNoWriMo, and here we are at the end of the month, and I failed… sort of. What I mean by that is no, I did not hit 50,000 words in my main work in progress. Had I counted everything I wrote outside […]

Writing Check-In

Alright, I am going to level with you, this is not going to be much of a post. After completely missing last week (and not being exactly on schedule for a few before), I wanted to make sure to hit all my scheduled posts for this week. The problem is I just could not think […]

Writing Woes: Struggling

I’ve been focusing mostly on editing lately because I have been really struggling with my writing.

Things I Do When I Am Struggling with a Blog Post (or Writing in General)

When I feel stuck on a post or impressions piece, or unable to come up with an idea for one, or stuck with my creative writing, I often find myself attempting these tricks. Sometimes they work well, sometimes I still feel stuck. -Pacing: This is something that I took up honestly to help me hit […]

Thoughts on NaNoWriMo

So let me start this little piece with the fact that I am not some massively successful writer. I have written for some sites, I have a few self-published pieces, and I, of course, have this blog. Know that this is coming from my personal opinions and take it for what you will. We are […]

Trying to Bring Back my Creativity

So I have been rather open about having issues with my writing and getting my creative juices flowing. It’s been a significant problem for a long time now. I have stalled on a nearly completed project and have made no headway with any others. Writing Impressions hasn’t been too bad (and I hope they are […]
