There must be a difference between Writer's Block and Writer's Meh. Block implies, to me, that you don't know where your story should go next or you just can't get the words to flow or the scenes to play out the way they should.
Writer's Meh is when you know what should happen, what needs writing next, how to write it, but you just. can't. seem. to. do. it. I've heard this described as burnout and that the best way to take care of it is to take a break. Thing is, I haven't done any serious work on writing in over a month. I've written a couple (what I think are) rather half assed bonus stories and a very bleh installment of Dreamers. Today I've been trying to work on the next chapter of Queen of Seven and I'm still in this mood where I just don't care.
I mean, I want to update my site. I want to show my readers what happens next. I don't want to write, though, I just want to have written.
I'm not sure what the cure for this is. More time off doesn't seem like a good idea, as the idea behind having a site was to, you know, post stuff to it. Working on a different project doesn't seem to be doing it either, I have two projects to choose from and they both disinterest me.
Chris suggested, not so subtly, () that I should be reading and reviewing. I feel just as "meh" about this though, and don't think that's a good way to go into reviewing. I'm in such a "blah blah who cares" mode that I'm sure any author I pick to victimize with a "blah blah who cares" review would rather I just amused myself by staring at the wall instead.
So, in short, *whine whine bitch moan*. I'm stuck in a rut of utter apathy.
