Since I started writing in mid-November I was writing about 1500 word stories or chapters every two or three days. In December it was almost every night. And most of it was at least readable. Then in January I went away for a month long course, which curtailed my writing somewhat. But I was still writing. Now I've run into a problem. My Grandfather and Uncle both died last week. I really don't care about that, I barely knew them. Unfortunately it hit my Mom kind of hard. I'm also looking for a teaching job overseas, which will be my first big trip since University almost a year ago, and my first real job that will set the tone of my entire future. So the stress has kind of gotten to me. I have plenty of ideas. I have two serial stories I am currently working on and I'm already behind schedule. There's no money, or time tables involved, but I did have a fairly strict personal schedule. Now anytime I try to type something I can't seem to think of the proper words and what I do write is doggerel. I'm not looking for pity or anything. Just has anyone else ever dealt with this type of writers block before, and if so how did you get over it?
