I’ve been struggling with writer’s block for the last several months. No matter how hard I try to concentrate, even on a tiny scene, my mind stays blank.
I say blank, but what I mean is…all over the place. I’ll start to type a sentence, when suddenly my brain goes, “Wait! Did you put the sheets in the dryer?” So, I head for the laundry room, see clutter on the kitchen table, and…well, by the time I get back to my desk, I barely remember what I was doing.
So, yesterday I went to my doctor for a double ear infection. The intake nurse was asking the usual questions, and I realized that I had stopped taking one of my medications – SEVERAL months ago.
It just so happens that this medication helps regulate memory, concentration, and about a dozen other things. I had cleaned off my nightstand to paint the bedroom, and I’m guessing the medication had fallen to the back of the drawer. Outta sight, outta mind. No real excuse, but it’s the only one I have 🙂
So, what I’m hoping is that I’ll be back to writing in the next few weeks, once the meds kick in again.
