After writing a 20,000 words short story, another 9500 words short story, several articles and taking on several clients all in one month I have a brain freeze. It is not quite a writers block.
I was finishing a 3000 words story for a client this morning when a I realized it. The story was moving along fine but I was trying to express something in the story but my brain froze, after hitting my head (gently of course) several time and arggg-ing and mmmm-ing, I still have not remembered. I need to publish a new hub but nothing. I think my brain is tired!
I need ideas!
Hmmm you could write about over working :p
Do you call 20k short?? That's about 30-40 pages isn't it. In terms of printed text I agree that's short. But for e-books its huge.
Well Novelettes and Novellas are also short stories as they haven't really made a significant mark as full fledged stories yet, but in terms of technicality anything under 7500 is a short story but publishers still refer to anything under 40,000 words as a short story.
think you should give it a rest. It maybe telling you something. Recharge the batteries. Wait for the muse. Maybe need to change course. Maybe a reason. Maybe I am all wet.

The kitchen sink idea is hilarious Cagsil, I htink I'll have the tea instead
I had a cup of sour sop leaves and feel much more relaxed.
Cagsil, were you serious about the kitchen sink thing....thought you were joking.

I just read an article on the Mythic Scribes forum that was complaining how many new writers want to jump right in and write an epic novel (this IS a sci-fi/fantasy writer's forum) with no experience... suggesting maybe newbies would be better off sticking to the short story for a few years before...
