Sometimes, no matter how hard you are working, the words crash to the ground like lumps of lead instead of flying off the page like songbirds. This happens to everyone. We all have off days. The important thing is to remember that this is a temporary phenomenon and not to give up.
When nothing is going right, it is time to take a break and rest up. Go for a walk in the sunshine. Ring a friend and go out for coffee. Reread one of your favourite books. The goal is not to fret. Don’t give yourself the chance to wallow in disappointment.
And remember, there is always tomorrow. Your muse will be waiting for you.
