I wouldn't say that I have writer's block exactly. More like tired brain. Symptoms include inability to type complete sentences, irritation with my main characters, laptop avoidance, and glazed eyes from excessive blog hopping as I procrastinate working on my WIP until late evening each day.
Writing 2,000 words a day (the recent summer goal I set) has been challenging but most of the time really enjoyable. I love watching my word count increase daily and seeing my story come to life.
But some of the time I feel tired at the thought of writing before I even sit down to type the first sentence. Ever feel that way? Is it writer newbie-itis? Or does tired brain affect all writers now and then?
I'm thinking a change of scenery will do me good. And maybe just a lot of downtime with a great book.
And fortunately, this week I am on a five day excursion as a leader at a church girls camp in the lovely wooded area of western Washington. We are asked to not bring electronics of any type (only cell phones are allowed for leaders) so my laptop will be taking a break as well back at home.
I will have good old fashioned pen and paper with me though and am hoping my brain will perk back up and the ideas will flow once more as I enjoy the forest and daily s'mores.
