I have a creative itch

Hello everyone! 

Long time without writing something here so I decided to come back to my keyboard. The reason I have been so lazy to write is because I went home for a while and you already know that when I am home, I get lazy! 

I had a very cute barbecue today with my family and have been lounging around all day long. Nothing interesting happening in my life, except for one thing.  

I have been feeling itchy lately. Not literally itchy, but rather figuratively itchy and a bit squeamish. It has been going on for a while, it’s like I have all of this pent-up energy but I don’t know what to direct it towards so my anxiety has been acting up.  

That is one of the reasons why I wrote Move and Start from Scratch and I took up journaling again. I solve my problems with writing and the solution to my problems is actual writing. 

I explained already Where Did Luna Start and a key to it was writing short stories. I had a very big imagination back then but for a few years now I have only been writing poetry and essay-type blog posts but I haven’t written a story in years. 

Well, through writing I realized that somewhere along the way my mind decided it was time to finally start thinking about actually writing a book and submitting it for publishing. I have this idea of what that book would be, but if I am to go through with this I am going to have to do a lot of research on different mythologies. My mind likes to give me something to do. I already started googling the books that I could use for my research and as soon as I get back to Zagreb I have to start digging through the library in hopes I will find something useful.  

I haven’t been writing stories in such a long time that I feel a bit scared, but I have to give it a shot. Maybe there’s a reason why my own mind is pushing me in that direction.  

Do you maybe have a published novel? Got any tips on how to start writing a book and not get lost in the process? Everything will be useful, just write it down in the comments.  

I wish you all a happy start of the week and have a lovely rest of your day! 

Love, 
Luna

  1. Yup, I have a traditionally published sci-fi novel, and to be honest, I’ve never really felt ‘not lost’ throughout the entire thing. This is especially true because I’m a pantser, and often write myself into corners. So for my fifth manuscript, I’m going to try plotting for a change. Anyway, the best thing you can do is to keep writing, no matter how you feel. Wishing you all the best!

  2. I don’t having any published work except my blog but as Stuart said just keep at it, maybe set a plan and goal to give you some guidance. Best of luck with your book.

  3. I SOO relate to “I solve my problems with writing”
