Dry Spell

I don't have writer's block, I just have been living a dry spell. I can write if I want to because I have plenty of words inside, but I just haven't been sitting my butt in the chair enough. The bottom line is I have been finding other things to do instead of writing.

Occasionally I have been line editing my novel and I'm almost done, but I'm stalling. Thinking the novel was ready I sent it out on query several times, but then decided that I'd missed too many errors with sentence structure, missing words, and other silly typos. It's definitely time to finish the editing and get it out to agents again.

I still have some short stories out there on submission, but two have been rejected. Ideally, I need to keep submitting my stories to different markets until they are accepted or there is nowhere else to send them.

I love writing but I have not been making the time for it.  The only way to do anything is just to do it and not make excuses. Time to start writing again.
