Once more, with IWSG Post

Hello my dearies!

Welcome to my Blurb and thank you for popping in. It's the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for....


I don't know if you saw my post on Sunday, but I've been plenty insecure lately. I've made the same writing-related new year's resolution for a couple of years now, and have yet to succeed. This year, what's plaguing me is actually getting down to the bones of it - writing, pure and simple. I have endless ideas, some great (at least I think so), some not so much (but they could possibly turn into something). 

In the past two weeks, I have managed to write down random plot points for the story I've decided to work on (and yes I've FINALLY decided to work on one in particular), and I've written about 1500 words, total.

Not much, right?  Well, I'm going to go with the glass-half-full idea and say it's better than nothing.

Happy Sundays, my dearies!

I hope you had a great end-of-the-weekend, or maybe you're busy watching the Super Bowl, or avoiding it, or waiting for the half-time show, or whatever... 

Meanwhile, I'm suffering from vacansopapurosophobia. Which is a word according to google...I'm not entirely convinced, but it will serve for now. What it means, you see, is having a fear of blank paper. Which is me, in a nutshell. 

I've been dithering about with my (numerous - I'm sure I've mentioned this before) story ideas (seriously, I have files and files and files of the things), but none of them are really...speaking to me, if you know what I mean. So here I am, sitting before a literal blank page, and it's looking rather scary. Add to that a whole load of job and family related stress and an ongoing lack of sleep, and it makes for a rather cranky Tessa.


I hope you're all doing better than that, but I would like to know what you think of you suffer from it? Or is it, for you, nothing but bah-humbug? 


Looking for something?
