    Gahhh. One of these days, a word war is going to motivate and inspire me, instill so many ideas and words into my head that I can’t stop the overflow. They’ll pour out of my fingertips onto the computer screen and I shall write again!!!

    *Sigh* Until then, I shall dejectedly cheer on Avensbeck from the sidelines.

    Why does life have to be so busssyyy and my inspiration so drrryyyyy and my motivation so nonexisteeennnnttt

    You know you’re a writer when you make up new words accidentally. For example, one of my characters just whispered something hoarsefully.

    *trumpet blast* I started writing again!!! 323 whole words! *bows dramatically* Thank you, thankyou. XD

    I know that’s not much, but I’m happy. =P But yeah, I guess my goal for this week is to, uh, keep it up. 😛

    @katherineh Thanks! 😀

    Heyy, that’s awesome! And smart. I have a tendency to do that (write extra one day and do nothing the next). ;P

    My goal is just to write anything at all. 😛 I haven’t been able to for a few weeks, and before a little writing spurt a few weeks ago, I didn’t write for like a month. *sigh* So yeah. I want to start working on my WIP again, and really get it moving this time.

    @h-jones I’ll be praying for you. That sounds really hard. I’m sure you have been, but one thing I’d encourage you to do is pray, a lot. God can use situations like these to show us our own weakness and draw us closer to Him, because He’s the only one who can save us. Trust in Him and His strength!! =))

    “…in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
