Hiding

I know, I’ve been gone for a wee while. Two weeks of mad writing, closely followed by a full-on doubt spiral and crash. No reason for it, just….Well, actually, I tell a lie. The trigger was a narrow miss on finalling in a contest. Which I should NOT have got so wound up about but did. Mainly because the margin was so narrow and it would have been another opportunity to get more than the first 3 chapters of a story before an editor… Sigh. One door closes and another shuts. Story of my life…

Anyway, laying low at the moment, trying to get some inspiration back again while I battle with non-writing stuff that’s getting me down. Not to mention wrestling with the continual question:

Why, oh why, do I want to be a writer again???

  1. Yay a Jackie post! I was about to email and harass you šŸ™‚

    Iā€™m sorry to hear about the near miss on the contest. But remember if one door closes another opens, and if not you need to get your axe out and make one šŸ˜‰

    I really hope everything in non-writing land resolves itself soon. Am sending big hugs and virtual ice cream your way until it does. xx

  2. I was waiting for a post too šŸ™‚

    Well, with SYTYCW coming to a close very soon, I have to admit I’m feeling very much like you. It’s the roller coaster ride that’s so hard to take. One day you’re up, the next you’re down. And that question of why oh why? Well, because we love it too much to quit šŸ™‚

    Hopefully everything else will get better fast too. xo

  3. Lacey – hehe. Sorry, yeah, been keeping a low profile. Thanks for the ice cream.

    Victoria – hey you! Yep, it’s a bit of a hell ride isn’t it? I do love writing, at least I keep having to tell myself that. Some days it’s harder to believe than others. šŸ™‚

  4. Why do you want to write, Jackie? Well, you know that hole in your forehead where the blood comes out? Writers actually breathe through that hole as well, and if you let it close over (due to, say, lack of writing) then I’m sorry, but that’s it – you’re a goner.
    Don’t let that hole close up, Jackie. Just don’t, okay?
