Gotta love the holidays!

So sorry that it has been a while since my last post! With the holidays and a young one, all free time seemed to go by the wayside!  Finally, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's is over and maybe I can get into a decent writing schedule again.

I have experienced writer's block recently, but wonder if it has something to do with the stress of the holidays. So, I realized it's not the end of the world if I don't write for a few days. The rest of the year I am like a writing machine. If I commit for an hour a night, that's what I do. I pride myself on my work ethic, and, to me, writing is like a job.

I must have a plan, and I must have a schedule. Even if it's not a full hour a day, I usually can get something down. By book 5, I should be used to this schedule-thing.

But what do I do when my mind is completely blank with what is to happen next? Because that is what is happening right now. Usually, I have a nice visual of the characters and the action that is happening, but lately it is a big dark area in my mind where there should be good things happening!

I don't have an answer. All can do is try to write a sentence or two. If I can do that, I will just go back and edit the chapters nearby to try to kick start my imagination. I hope that will work.

Stay tuned and I will let you know how it is working out
