Sometimes "Just Do It" Isn't Enough


I think everyone here's seen just how dead my writing, or even reading on the site has been of late. I could make excuses, but there's really only one reason behind it all: I just can't seem to make myself do it.

PFH? 1/3 done. Phoenix Soars? 2/3. I have various other projects hovering between 1/4 and 3/4 done, and plans for oh so many more, but it seems like if I manage 500 words in a month any more I've pushed myself hard. It's just... ugh.

Not that I haven't been creative in the meantime, mind. The last year or so I've been playing with a lot of music creation software, and I have about 27 tracks on SoundCloud I'm fairly proud of. But that isn't writing, is it? It's a creative outlet, but it's one I have even less of a chance of success with than my stories, which, let's face it, are hardly good enough I'll ever make a living off what I write, especially with my lack of drive/discipline.

Ah, well.

I'll have more when I can. In the meantime, sorry I suck so much, and thanks to everyone here for continuing to provide the best community online :)
