I’ve been in edit-mode recently. So much so, getting back into writing has been difficult. Compounding problems? I was working on song lyrics for my WIP. And I am not a songwriter. Sure, I can come up with clever parodies (look out, Weird Al!), but starting from scratch, especially when I don’t have a melody? It wasn’t pretty.

Truth be told, it was crippling. Nothing like attempting something you suck at to totally derail you.

So, I did projects that didn’t need doing. I wrote blog posts that could have waited. My anxiety grew because I have deadlines looming and I was putting off writing.

I happen to be pretty lucky, as far as writers go.
