Kate Loveton reblogged this on Odyssey of a Novice Writer and commented:

I had to reblog this post from Carry the Message. This post describes so accurately the feelings I've been battling the past month or two. It's comforting to know others experience this dry patch. I am having a serious conversation with myself at present, admonishing myself to get my writing butt back in gear.  I talk a lot in front of the mirror.  My husband is quite worried about me!  :D Have any of you also experienced this malaise from time to time, finding it difficult to put words to paper?  Perhaps not even caring to do so?  Tell me about it, if you have. And when you get a chance, check out Carry The Message. This gentleman has a seriously great blog. Trust me - would I steer you wrong?  Not a chance!

Wednesday Whine: The Brick Wall
