Motivation, where art thou?


I feel full of fail.

~head desks~

I have had a severe lack of motivation to do ANYTHING productive the last month now. My blog posts are sporadic, I’m sluggish about responses, I’m not doing much reading, I’ve given up on those contests I was aiming for and I’m falling behind in Camp Nanowrimo.

I had started completely rewriting my first couple of chapters of Book Two before sending them to my editor, and ~poof~ All my drive and motivation fled me.

I feel apathetic and lethargic.

Very depressed, that is for certain. People who know me have even noticed. I have not even gone to the coffee shop to sit down and write all week.

What’s wrong with me? Where has my self confidence run off to? My motivation? My inner cheering section?


I will extend my apologies to anyone who’s emailed me and I haven’t responded yet, and I am TOTALLY behind on reading my favorite blogs.

Can anyone cheer me up? Set me back on track? Kick me in the ass?

On a side note, Fat Cat got her usual shave down and the groomer messed it up. She’s supposed to get a ‘Lion’ cut. They forgot to shave her tail down to a little poof at the end. So, Fat Cat looks like a fat blubbery pink uddered Squirrel. >:[

      I KNOW!!! Though, she doesn’t seem to mind. The moment I brought her collar back out she showed me her serious ninja squirrel moves though. She likes being ‘naked’. 😀

    And don’t sweat the lack of motivation. It’ll return. I have times like that, too, where it’s all I can do to stretch after a nap, let alone keep up with my blog!

  3. You can do it! I’ve been sucked into the vortex of doom, find a good tv show and see if that helps. Inspiration will come, even if it comes from a weird place. Side note-poor kitty.

    Maybe you just need a little R&R. And 7,038 of 15K words (46.9%) isn’t bad for Apr 11. Maybe…write some more “smut”? Writing requires not only reading—anything—but writing…anything. At least you wrote this post. 🙂

      You know you are right…I did manage to write this post. Even though its a whine-fest, I had to put thought into it…lol. I think I nearly broke my brain.
