Hello on Tuesday!  What kind of a writing day has it been today -- or yesterday, if today hasn't gotten going yet?
  •     I thought about my fic once or twice
  •     I wrote
  •     I did some planning and/or research
  •     I edited
  •     I've sent my fic off to my beta
  •     I posted today!
  •     I'm taking a break
  •     I did something else that I'll talk about in a comment
Tuesday Discussion - Do you have creative dry spells which affect your ability to write?  How do you weather them?

I wrote 872 words today.

I found that my dry spells are usually tied to plot problems of my writing, so I usually put them aside so that I can solve them.

Argh, I didn't write anything the last two weeks. :( Which answers the question about dry spells, I guess. Usually I kick myself and try to get at least a really low daily minimum out, to get things moving, but this time, I was just too lazy and too distracted by new shiny things. No real other excuse, I'm afraid.

Did a canon review over the weekend to get me back into the mood and started writing again. I actually made good progress, at least. I need to really keep at it now, what with the big bang deadline.

Another double shift today (i.e. yesterday), plus another bout of feeling unwell and basically flopping on the couch as soon as I got home. :-| I'll file that under "dealing with life".

There are different kinds of dry spells, but ... yes. Right now, it's a long dry spell related to the above (chronic illness plus overwork). Not much to do about that but focus on self-care.
