I'm another returnee to the fold, to participate in Talkback's new format Although I may not be posting very often, I do like to give my two pennyworth now and again.
The fact is, I need help. I just can't seem to get myself going with my writing these days. It isn't only because of a house move and all the attendant problems that I've had to deal with, although they interfered a bit. It's just that I've made several false starts but soon come to a grinding halt. I'm not the sort of writer who can make things up as they go along: I need to have things sorted out in my mind first.
I refuse to believe that, after five novels and three novellas, I've got nothing left in me. Although my work might end up being found in the loft after I've shuffled off this mortal coil and taken to a publisher who snaps it up, too late for me, I'd still love to get going again. Writing won't leave me alone.
It's good to be with you again. Any rut-escaping advice would be appreciated.
