For the sake of my own sanity, I've postponed my last Camp story; a story I've been working on for years. I cannot see it clearly at this point and all I can do is take a long break and hope for the best.

I have a new project (working title: Night Sails) I'd like to focus on in July, though I've yet to decide whether I want to actually write it or if I'll just work on the concept and outlining. Maybe I should write a fanfic instead? I don't know. It has been difficult to get motivated recently and despite my initial excitement with Night Sails, I'm already finding faults with my own imagination.But if I'm honest, I'm probably just having a tough day as I had to deal with a bunch of condescending bureaucrats and this sort of thing tends to suck out any joy I would have had otherwise.

So, is anyone else taking part in July's Camp Nano? What are you writing?

/hugs/ writing motivation can be a tough thing. Have you been filling the well enough? I find that when the words aren't flowing watching/reading something new can sometimes help.

Camp Nano isn't happening for me this year, as (fingers crossed) I'll be moving, but I'm going to try and make some progress on the HP Fic Of Doom I've been steadily plugging away at for two years now.

I'm going to agree with the other comment. Taking a step back from planning or writing to listen to good music or watch a new show sometimes works wonders for me once I start to doubt my own ideas.

I wanna get back into writing, but Camp Nano has never worked out for me. I don't know if it's because I'm just out in the sun more during this time of year or what, but I always kind of flake out and forget that I'm taking part. Now that I'm on dreamwidth, it might be different, since cabins never work out for me.
