Don’t freak out if you have a less-than-productive day! Your brain is an organ and needs rest too.
I go through extreme phases of burnout and momentum as illustrated above. I wouldn’t have been able to explain it as succinctly (or artistically) as Emily has done.
At this moment, however, I’m going through a writerly do-nothing period. I had a momentum burst to work on After the Fall not long after finishing Cliche, but it was short-lived. Now, I’m focusing on my studies and all the things I have to focus on, and forcing myself to remain dormant so that I can tackle my Cliche rewrites at the end of the year.
