Writers Block?

I have been “working” on the latest book in the Closet Door series for two years. At first I blamed it on moving to South Africa and having that fantastic view. People told me to turn my computer away from the ocean view. As if I could do such a thing…

But now we are back. First we went to New Mexico for a few months. I wanted so much to like it. I really tried. It was beautiful, just expensive. We ended up in a one room Casita which was nice but I couldn’t concentrate on writing at all.

Everyone said that it was one of the rainiest springs ever. All the wild cactus were in bloom. That was pretty spectacular. I’m from Virginia so even the rainiest weather there is still dry as hell to me. I watched as the rainstorms would end and the water would just evaporate instantly. A mist would rise up and the pavement, tables, chairs, anything outside would be completely dry again.

So the contrast from the beach to the desert was too strange and harsh.

So we came back to Virginia. I have no excuse not to write but I have not been able to write like I used to.

I am still processing my time in South Africa.

I think maybe I have just moved around too much and am having a hard time figuring out where in the world to be.

Maybe I’ll write novels again. Maybe not. I’ve been working on a Reiki One manual so that I can teach classes. It’s a different kind of writing but still writing.
