So, I’ve started an erotica series. I’m working on the third chapter in the series. The first two are selling pretty well. I’ve been in bit of a writing slump lately… opening my manuscript, staring at it for half an hour, rereading it for an hour, trying to write on it, and coming up with nothing. A friend suggested writing something new which is how I came up with the erotica. I think it just fires different pistons in the same creative engine and gets me moving again. I’m still having trouble coming back to my work in progress, but at least I’m writing again, which means ideas are flowing again. I think writing is a lot like sex. The more sex you have, the more you want. Your brain spends time thinking about the awesome sex you just had and it bombards you with ideas about new and better sex ideas. When I have a great writing session, my brain keeps remembering how great it felt to write and it bombards me with ideas to keep me writing.
I haven’t gotten back to my manuscript yet, but I can feel the rumbles of the ideas starting to fly at me again and I’m getting excited. Writer’s block doesn’t happen to every writer, but it happened to me… and hard. Perhaps stepping out on my manuscript will be just the thing to bring the fire back into our relationship.
