I haven't written a post in a while. Too long really.
I know this because sitting at my computer now trying to put some words on the screen is harder than usual.
You know one of the most commonly given tips for wannabe writers is 'write every day'. The pros hand it out a lot because they know it works. The more you write the better you feel, so write some words before and after every meal! Not really, but you get the gist.
I haven't written anything - well, not anything creative - in almost a month. Work commitments have been huge and family life has been busy and full and there just hasn't been time.
Going that long without working on my novel or even just playing with words and sentences like I do here makes me depressed. I feel all sluggish and mopey and when that happens I lose touch with the everyday creativity-hit that writing brings.
