Feeling blah

What do you do when you're feeling blah and unmotivated to write?

This is my challenge right now. Too busy to write during the day when I'm feeling motivated...but when I finally have some time in the evening after getting the kiddies to bed, my mind draws a blank. My creativity goes out the window.

Any tips on how to get the mojo back into my writing life? What works for you?

(((poor you))) no fun when you're tired and blank. Nat gave me a good tip on this one, and it's worked for me too when stuck.

GO TO BED EARLY. Don't read, just give yourself permission to lie there dreaming and day dream about your story. Suddenly voila the characters are centre stage on your mental tv screen and the whole process gets a kick start. It seriously works. Plus it's a bit of a power nap when you're low and tuckered out. Give it a try!

I read. :)

Sometimes you just need to go and fill the well up before you start writing again.

Hope the blahs pass soon.
