My many reasons for not writing much this summer range from valid to pretty silly. House guests, family gatherings, day trips, and July 4th festivities all qualify as my valids. Maybe needing a nap following any of these activities can be considered valid, as well. Naps, as we all know, happen and are my personal favorite way to reboot a tired mind and body. Some of my other reasons for not writing are no more than cover-ups for the fact that I probably just don`t feel like it and would rather do something else instead.
If I have a writing commitment, such as say, a blog post schedule, of course I`ll do it, even if I end up writing about how I don`t feel like writing. Beyond that, I seem to have fallen into some kind of kid on vacation from school mentality, and my muse is off on a cruise somewhere. What`s a Maggie to do?
I do love to write and want to have my fiction published, read, and enjoyed. My home office is comfortable and conducive, and so is the library, a chair under my favorite shade tree, my recliner, my bed. Maybe if I stop scolding myself and know I`ll get back to my writing when I`m ready, I`ll get back to it sooner.
How`s your summer writing working out for you?
