When writing is going well, Gentle Reader, I sometimes forget how much hard work, how very hard writing is, as a profession. But when I am getting back into the groove of writing every day, of getting back to a schedule (a blessed, blessed schedule!), I am suddenly faced with how very hard it is to work writing back into my daily routine. I set goals for myself; currently, I am at “two pages a day, minimum.” But even with goals as small as that, it still hurts to pull it out of myself, to sit down and stare at that screen, to remember the train of thought from the day before and write what needs to be written, and work over what needs to be rewritten.
This is not writer’s block but more, writer’s pain, no?
