When reality interferes with your writing.

As I have said before, I have gone for a complete change in career and I am currently in the middle of a year-long course learning to be an Early Years Teacher. This includes a lot of work at university and a lot of time in a placement at a nursery, along with family and other commitments this means I am pretty much busy six and a half days week and getting up early every day. The long and short of it is, I am exhausted. A consequence of that is I am not writing anything.


How do I break out of this? Honestly, I don’t know. At the moment I haven’t really got the energy to think through new story ideas and I definitely don’t seem to have the time to write them. So, what do I do? The answer is simple, I just need to find time. Even if I can’t spend hours at the keyboard every day maybe I can find time to write a hundred words a day or even fifty. Once I get going I know I will get excited about what I am doing and want to come back to it more and more but the difficult bit is starting from the blank page.


Maybe doing some promotions on my existing books will help to get me going? Maybe just putting together print editions of my Kindle only books? Either could be worth a try.
