If I could count the times I've used this title over theyears. OMG! I need to write. I can't write. Yesterday i could write but had too many distractions namely a beautiful little ELF who refused to quit screaming. It's nap time. I have time to write but the words aren't coming. I just want to sleep. I even tried this. (I never nap--bad idea for insomniacs). But I thought if I could sleep maybe I'd be fresh to write. Can't sleep either. So I'm staring at a blinking cursor. And I want to cry. Also, I got a two page editorial letter yesterday for the companion to A Missing Peace, and I want to cry. So that is the theme of today.



  1. I know what you mean. I have been sleeping a lot more than usual too and not writing. Maybe on some level your mind is tired and wants a little break. Either way, I hope you can get back to writing soon. Best of luck.

  2. Don't cry, Beth. Work on something else and then go back to whatever is stumping you.

  3. Hang in there. You're a hard worker, even if some days that seems like it's not enough. Things will work out, though.
