Being an indie writer means I work a full time job to pay the bills, then come home and try to find time to write. There are some days when sitting at the computer watching the cursor flash on the blank screen can be overwhelming and, on occasion, I have been known to close the laptop and open up my closet or some other cluttered space and start reorganzing. Currently, I’m struggling with how to end my work in progress and fighting the urge to makeover the guest bedrooms. Instead, I’ve been surfing the interent for any facts even remotely connected with my story. That is still work, right? Now, I’m going to give you a chance to do some surfing of your own over at Amazon and I better get back to writing. Click HERE for a list of the other sites participating with more great prizes.

The Slump July 1, 2013

Fresh Green Beans

Fresh Green Beans

I’m in a cooking slump. Nothing sounds appealing. Even the scrumptious dessert recipes I have been purusing can’t entice me into the kitchen. Aside from a dinner last week of green beans fresh my garden along with sauted zucchin, squash, onion, and pepers, I can barely stand being in the kitchen. The fact that all of the fresh veggies come in during the heat of summer, when turning on the stove turns the kitchen into a sauna is maddening.

 

I wonder if a cooking slump is like a writing slump. When I get in a writing slump, I struggle to get a handful of words on the page, but if I keep at it, eventually the wall comes down. Maybe if I spend time in the garden, trimming the dead leaves, removing the worms, pinching the flowers off the herbs, then I will find inspiration to cook again.

 

I suppose all I can do is soldier on, taking comfort in the promise of cooler weather in a few months, and a file of new recipes awaiting my return.
