It can be really difficult to stay creative at the best of times … and it’s safe to say these are NOT the best of times!
After a year of the pandemic and multiple lockdowns all over the world, writers may be feeling burned out (I know I am).
Of course, rest is important. If you feel you can’t go on, now is a great time to take stock and let the well replenish. I will be doing this over Easter, so the B2W site will be taking a short break. (Don’t panic though … You can still get your doses of writerly goodness via the B2W newsletter: SIGN UP HERE).
However, if you’re wanting to write right now, this post has a video and linkage to help you do just that.
