Apathy tiredness and finding your groove
Greg mate - looks like you're getting the cheer leaders outfit and the pom poms! I'm looking forward to writing a post about writers apathy in the near future - and why it is different (and thus needs to be attacked differently) to writer's block. I think perhaps some writers end up in a terrible downwards spiral because they mistaken being apathetic as being blocked. I'm hoping in the second half of the year everything will come together with a little more finesse. I also need to learn to start saying "no" again... I do quite a lot at my son's school, so I've ended up with about the same amount of time as I had when he was at kindy five days a fortnight, with less time to work at night and more projects I'm involved in. Think I'm having a light bulb moment. xxx
I can totally relate, Jodi - my son started school last fall and that's been the most structured my life has been since he was born. To some extent I thrive with a schedule but at the same time I often rebel against it. It's difficult to find a good balance. I guess we'll all be drawing some inspiration from Greg ;-)
Yes, I can sympathise with Paul...when I got made redundant, part of me thought "Yippee! I have all this time to write!" but then I spent way more time trying to find a new job...and then my lack of success in the job hunting just made me apathetic about everything I was doing, including writing. Apathy is a killer.
