8 Moments When You Swear You’ll Never Write Again

Originally published July 19, 2013 (but definitely worthy of a re-visit)

1) The Late-Night Brain Dump

That moment at 4:30am when you cannot stop writing because the words just keep coming.

*******************************************************************************

2) The I’ll Remember Tomorrow

That moment you didn’t write down the idea you had, and, eventually, you’ll lie on your death bed trying to think of it.

*******************************************************************************

3) The All Day Procrastination

When you block of 8 hours of writing time for yourself and end up doing dishes, mopping the floors and generally getting nothing done.    *******************************************************************************

4) The Bad Review

The moment you read your first public bad review.

*******************************************************************************

5) The Broken Leg

The day you get hurt and realize you probably shouldn’t have quit your job with health insurance.

*******************************************************************************

6) The Party Ideas

The moment when you’re at a party and someone hears you’re an author, and they have the best idea for a story.

*******************************************************************************

7) The Peak

The moment you realize your first book was the best book you’ll ever write, and all your new ideas are just variations on that first idea.

*********************************************************************************

8 ) The Mind Eraser

 

When you spend 8 hours staring at your pen and pad and get 3 sentences that don’t even string together.
