I’ve been in a writing rut lately and I’m not sure how to get out of it. I was doing pretty good for a while, staying on track and getting my writing time in. Then I hit a bit of a snag. I realized there were a few big issues with my story line that I need to work out. And then there were a few weeks where my schedule got interrupted by life (ie. family visiting, tax time, sick kids) and now I’m having a hard time getting back into the rhythm I had going. I think if these two things happened separately, I’d be fine, but having them coincide completely derailed me. I feel like I keep repeating this cycle of getting derailed for one reason or another, but I’m no closer to avoiding it. I’m slowly getting back on track, but it will take some time to get back to where I was. My only solution to this cycle is to ride it out and get back to writing once it’s taken its course. Has this happened to you? If so, how did you get back on track and how do you keep it from happening again?
