I had a great time at the conference, learned quite a bit and my head was spinning by the end of the day. I pitched my story to two people - Tracy for HQN and Leslie for Silhouette. Both asked for a sym. and the first 3 chapters. WOOO-HOOOO!! It's a start. I was sooo nervous walking into that room. I almost forgot what my story was about!!
Now, almost 2 weeks later, I haven't done a thing. What's wrong with me?? I should be typing my fingers to the bone, trying to get my chapters just right. I mainly blamed it on my laptop. I have a 8 year old laptop (Betsy) that only has WORD, EXCEL and card games - yes, I know Free Cell very well - but she caught a virus a couple of weeks ago and hasn't been running since. When I'm in my writing zone, I like to work on Betsy while I'm on the couch with my feet up on the coffee table. whine, whine...I can't do that right now...sniff, sniff... I do have a great desk top which I use on a daily basis but for some reason, words don't flow from my brain, through my fingers and down to the keyboard as well. Ugh...
I know we have discussed writer's block and how to overcome it but what does one do when you have something important that should go out within a reasonable time frame? What do you do for blockage when you are on a deadline?
