Why Is Writing A New Book So Difficult?!

by Nicole Trilivas

I have become a procrastinator. For the past few months, I’ve come up with one excuse after another on why I can’t start my next book yet. These excuse range from totally invalid (I don’t know the name of my protagonist yet) to totally valid (I’m dealing with the recent death of my father).

Even this blog post is another way to procrastinate. I keep waiting “to feel it.” But it’s been too long. I’m not going to get smacked by a big ol’ dose of 5,000-words-in-a-day inspiration until I start writing the damn book. I’m sure inspiration will strike, but it’s not going to happen on day one.

Okay, enough talk. Now for more writing.
