What I’m Currently Working On

Ok, so over the last week I really haven’t worked on much of anything. One of my loveliest friends from the city came down for a visit so naturally I was focusing on showing her around and having a bit of a vacation myself. I feel pretty good about the fact that we had a movie day and I got a huge chunk of my Mom’s birthday present finished (I handmake 95% of the gifts I give people). I’d post a picture of her gift but I’m wanting it to be a surprise and my Mom (occasionally) actually reads this blog (usually when I guilt trip her about it).

But, joking aside, over the last month I’ve been feeling pretty good about my productivity level. I go through phases where all I can do is stare at a blank page and know what I want to say but have no idea how to say it. I know that it’s easier to rewrite terrible sentences than it is to edit nothing but it’s still a challenge. Professionally I’ve been actively writing two manuscripts, Samhain Sorcery and the sequel to a yet unpublished manuscript that I’ve mentioned in previous posts. I’ve also been plotting out another two novels, one about a Genie and another one that will be my first Science Fiction novel. I’m pretty excited about that one.

I’ve found that as I change as a person I need to change up my methods. I used to only focus on one project at a time. Now I need to maximise my time efficiency, so I’ve started working on different projects on different days. It seems to be working for me so far. I’ve found this helps when I have writer’s block. I can switch temporarily to another project to inspire me. Spotify has been my best friend during my writing time lately and I love that they have such a wide range of music.

So that’s all I’ve got to say today. Now, it’s back to writing. How do you increase your productivity when you’re feeling uninspired?
