I haven’t written anything of a fictional nature in over a month. I’ve been writing blog posts and interviews in order to promote my new book, Midwife To Destiny, but it’s not the same.
I’ve run into a wall when it comes to writing. I refuse to call it writer’s block. Instead let’s call it Nana’s fictional writing hiatus. Doesn’t that sound better?
The cause is staring me in the face and refuses to move. I started a romance a few months ago and it took a horribly wrong turn and now I’m not sure how to fix it or if I should just carry on with it and attempt to fix it later. And yet if I keep going with it the story continues to go in a whole different direction than if I go back and fix it.
My answer to these plaguing back and forth issues? Hiatus. Once I ingest enough chocolate courage I’ll sit back down in front of the piece and either tear it apart or retire it for good. I’ll let you know.
