I know when I’ve been licked. And not in the good way.
It’s day 20, I’ve only got about 6000 words written, and I just don’t see myself catching up, for a number of reasons:
1) There’s a whole lot of vacation coming up where I’ll have to be spending time with family and kids and I won’t have writing time.
2) Right now I’m sick as a dog, and I’m doing the best I can just to survive all the other crazy commitments I’ve got going on.
3) Truth is — I’m just not into the story right now.
So I’ll shelve it for now, and get back to it later. I just can’t work on it right now. I’ve got another story that wants to be written, and I’ll probably take a stab at that first. But right now, I’m just gonna try to get well and survive.
