The title says it all, doesn't it?
Sometimes it happens. The good idea requires work and I'm feeling lazy. So what am I to do? Well, I took a few moments to see what I realistically expected out of myself. There are factors to this little slow-down. It's winter. I have less quality writing time. I seem to be a little less than 100% healthy. So okay. Those are factors.
Then I listed some potential solutions to these doldrums.
I have accomplished quite a lot lately, so I gave myself some praise for that. I also wondered if I was bored with my approach to writing. Well, variety has always been the answer to boredom, so I generated a few new ideas to help me reach my writing goals. And I made some phone calls and sent a couple of emails to people I have neglected. I took a nap. I wrote this. And then I felt a bit more enthusiasm.
