Since Thursday last, I’ve been out of it, writing very little, a few thousand words at most on stuff that isn’t my manuscript–like this. I’m not stuck. I have ideas. I just have little motivation. All I seem to want to do is sleep. I wonder if I’m in Postpartum Potter depression, or simply overwhelmed at how impossible it seems to get published. Well, I guess I need a finished manuscript before I can let that start bothering me, now don’t I?! Thus, mildly depressed, in the writing doldrums and feeling sorry for myself as a writer…all of which means I need to shut the hell up and start writing on my manuscript.
