I'm in a terrible place for a writer---smack-dab in the middle of the Don't-Wannas. Don't wanna write. Don't wanna research. Don't wanna plot. Don't wanna do anything but play solitaire, read blogs, hang out on message boards and sleep. Maybe it's the recent change from Daylight Savings Time to regular time, or the colder weather, or the impending madness of the holidays, but whatever the reason, I'm having terrible trouble getting my mind into writing. I'm waiting to hear from my editor about line edits on the most recently purchased book and her thought on the partial of book three, and for some reason, the writing part of my brain seems to think that's permission to be a complete slug.
I can't be the only person this happens to. But if you're looking for me to come up with good advice about how to get out of it, you're out of luck. Instead, why don't y'all share some of your sure cures for the Don't-Wannas?
