In the meantime I have had a couple of publications. Good magazines, with high profiles and reputations. There was even a decent review.
But the drought I'm experiencing isn't only in regards to sales. My motivation seems to have dried up as well. Not a writer's block. I have ideas, and I know how to 'make' ideas, just the willingness to sit down and write those words.It's been months since I've sat down to write new words. Well, new fiction, at least.
I started the new semester at work this week. A new group of students in my Writer's class. I've started showing them how to structure stories, and I learned a couple of points myself.
I'm hoping this is what it takes to push me back into the writer's chair. And yes, I realise it's something I need to make myself do.
