Writer's Exhaustion

After I finished my submission for the WIFYR conference and the April A to Z Challenge, I took a break from writing. I only intended to take a week long breather, but one week turned to two. Two turned to three, and now it's almost the end of May. I must've been more exhausted than I thought.

Today, I'm picking up the WIP again.

or will I?

I heard about another competition with a huge monetary prize. I might wanna submit to it. I meet the requirements, and I think I'm talented enough for it. I hate to abandon the weight loss memoir for another competition, especially since I was doing so well prior to the submission deadline, but this new one is worth a LOT of money. And anyone who is a writer knows that money is muy importante. And anyone who knows me knows money is scarce and therefore muy muy importante.

It could be worth it.



  1. DO IT!!! The memoir isn't going anywhere. It will wait for you.

  2. At the risk of sounding far more flaky than I am, I think sometimes you have to listen to your heart and write what it tells you to (or take a break when you're wiped out from a blogging challenge ;) ). Is that the contest entry or the memoir?

    1. I spent some time thinking about it and I think it's the contest. The piece I want to write for it has been budding for some time. I think it's ready to blossom. =)

  3. I'm with Rhonda; you gotta do what you feel, yo. ;-)

  4. we all need a break from writing sometimes. Hopefully your break has given you the energy to write once more:)
