Sometimes I have no idea what to write about. None. Head. Is. Empty. I hate that. It's like falling through the air and not knowing how you're going to land. And that's happening to me right now. Blogging is one of those things that is both annoying and fun. Like karaoke. Except I don't want to do karaoke. I want to do the real stuff, the real writing, and today nothing is coming. So I'm writing this. I think it might be time for a level-set on writing. So here we go:
1. I'm writing something. That's the goal for the day. It doesn't have to win any awards. Hell, no one even needs to read it. I just have to write it. So this is a victory.
2. I've got other stuff I'm going to write as soon I hit 'publish'. I've got a novel I'm working on, plus another short story, so there's more than this. This is the warm up.
3. I've already published. Both on the blog, and other material. And more on the way. This won't be the last thing I publish. Only the next.
4. Not every day is easy. Some days, writing is work. Today is that day. Tomorrow will be better.
So that's my silver lining. What do you do to pep yourself up when things are hard?
