Wannabe Writers #56 (Lost Motivation)
I'm posting early this week b/c I missed last Thursday's post while working and I need advice!
Where I am in the writing process: Unpublished! For the month of May and June I was speed-writing through the first draft of the novel I'm calling ELIXIR. I reached about 50K and then two weekends ago I moved. (To Florida, yay!)
My current problem(s): I haven't written in two weeks. I haven't even opened a word document in two weeks. I haven't done anything writing related. And now--finially I have some free time--and I'm blogging and avoiding writing. It's just, I can't decide if I want to keep speed-writing my way through ELIXIR or go back to my other novel (the one I started summer 2009!) GLITCH and keep pressing through with that one. Either way, it all seems so overwhelming. I don't know what to do.
My question(s) this week: How do I get back my motivation?
