How to get back to writing if you are feeling trapped?

feeling trapped?

I started a new story today. I feel trapped enough that working on my WIP is claustrophobic. I have great notes from fabulous editors for two different books in two different genres.

I just couldn’t get started back to writing.

My last meeting with my editor on my MG mystery was the week I was diagnosed with Covid 19. That was followed by 21 days of yuch! Fever, aches, pains, coughing, exhaustion, etc. Now I am feeling great but I just couldn’t get started.

So I began a new story, actually two new stories. Each of them has 2 pages to them at the moment, but enough that I have an inkling of an idea.

I also took a writing class online today, and now I am ready.

So I wrote 2 blog posts.

Of course! You didn’t think I was that capable of beginning anew right NOW did you? Just the act of writing is a win! Getting the muscles moving, so to speak.

That will come tomorrow or while dinner is cooking or while I am doing various things for the household. Full time wife and mom duties first.

But let’s get back to it because we need stories don’t we?
