So, I started a new job a couple of weeks ago. Same company, different position. I'd been doing the same job for 11 years. You could say my brain was numb. I didn't have to think, I just did it. But, the last two weeks, I've had to buckle down and re-start my brain cells. And, believe me, it hasn't been easy. My old brain rebelled at first. "What do you mean, I have to think?"
My writing has been pretty much non existant lately. I failed NaNo this year. I failed JaNo, also. I want to finish my work in progress but, something has been holding me back. Dead or asleep brain cells maybe? But, walla! Suddenly, I am wanting to write again. My brain is swimming with ideas. I've often heard that to get out of writer's block, you need to change your scenery. Although, I'm in the same office building, I am at a different desk and different job. Has that made the difference? I don't know. I'm just glad my muse is back. What do you do when you hit a writing block?


  1. Good for you, Wanda. I like to take walks a, go to the gym, o bike ride when I need to think. Doesn't lays work, though. Wishing you luck.

  2. I agree, I think having to learn new things re-energizes your brain. I took a job at TeleTech a couple of years ago after spending two years doing data entry. It really reminded me how good learning is for you. Unfortunately, I hated what I did at TeleTech, so I quit and went back to data entry, but mostly I'm glad I did.

    That's why I've enjoyed--and hated--learning all this e-publishing stuff. It opens my brain even as it screws with my head. :D

    I'm glad your muse is back too. It's no fun when it goes on vacay without you!
