I'm so bored. Bored with blogs, with housework, with TV, with everything. I have so many home projects I could be working on, but I just can't generate the interest. You should be impressed I've mustered up the energy to post this link:

Guest Post: How to Cure Your Writer's Block

One thing that stops me from writing is thinking of how huge the project is. This article reminds me it's not as big as I think.

I think I would like to talk about writer's block someday, when I am further removed from it.

Now back to the boredom....*sigh*

  1. Uh oh...looks like we've found SuperChipper Girl's kryptonite! Quick, what can I do to help?

  2. Dun dun duunnnnnn!! SCG's weakness is -- BOREDOM! Now the nefarious DarcMelancholy knows how to defeat her beaming smile and optimistic power-blasts.


  3. I know what helps: chocolate. Oh, did you mean what helps you to write that dauntingly big project? Seriously, I know what you mean, and my solution (when I actually get over my initial resistance to start) is to break the project down into a small thing and then do it in chunks.

    Which is why I am working on plot outline for the old trunk novel. I'm not even really rereading the thing, but just skimming mostly to get the gist of it (seeing as it's been 4 years).

    Believe it or not, it's made the book project exciting again and shoehorned the events back into my head. Now I want to start writing.

    Probably too much effort for you to go through though. I'm not what you'd call a prolific writer and don't mind doing this kind of thing.

  4. Have you tried dancing? Too much coffee might help. Or embrace the boredom. Maybe you'll find the boredom too boring to stand and you'll have to do something.

  5. I can't help it - for the last 10 years whenever I hear someone say they're bored, the Harvey Danger song "Flagpole Sitta" goes through my mind. I know, I'm an evil person. *hangs head in shame* I'll let you youtube the song yourself in case you don't know what I'm talking about so you can hate me later. ;)

    Seriously, I think my listlessness of the past few days has rubbed off on you. That's how I've felt too - having a hard time generating interest in pretty much everything. Maybe Kree is right and it's nothing more than sick-and-tired-of-winter-itus. I sure hope so because this gets old fast!

    *hugs* Hope you perk up soon, hon.
