I just asked for a re-assignment on my only writing project this week. I stand to earn almost $200 from that but I seem to be feeling down lately and I haven't really made any progress on writing the report. Rather than forcing myself (and producing a low-quality report), I had it re-assigned.
Has this ever happened to you? Anyone?
emievil are you ok? I hope you get over what is bothering you for now, and you can always continue writing for them again after sometime, hugs,
Physically, yep. Emotionally, uhm, not sure. Nothing in particular. Just not feeling that good at the moment. Don't worry, I have this like once a month then it goes away .
it will go away soon emie, it happens to everybody, hope it will be soon so you can go back to normal,
It happens to me when I miss my children, I just sit down take a deep breath and write a poem, do you like to share and write a poem about it, then post it, cmon write one, ok, hugs again
I get that way a lot Emi where I don't want to write or do anything. But that is because I have no job. We all have down days...it's normal unfortunately. I hope that things pick up for you!
Sometimes we all need a break. I don't know if this is how it is for you, but as a freelancer I spend just about as much time LOOKING for work as I do doing it. That on top of earning a Master's degree and some days I really have to say "No" when a client sends a proposal...even if I would really like the money.
It sounds like you need some rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Try to take a day planned all around relaxing things that you like, but don't normally get to do. You deserve it, and probably you need it.
i have never had anything reassigned, as there isnt anyone to reassign TOO. But i would if i could. sometimes stuff just doesnt get done. i hope you feel better soon. dont be hard on yourself, everyone needs a break somtimes.
Dont panic, take a few minutes relax, have a coffee, read the news, do something else for a while, clear the mind, then get back to your assignment, go for a walk, but never panic.....
Thanks theirishobserver. Actually, the re-assignment has been done already. I had it the project for 4 days and I haven't done anything concrete. Usually, when this happens, I know I'm not meant to do the project so I usually unload it to somebody who can.
I'm in the same position as you are in. I haven't had it re-assigned, but I'm motivating myself by reading a few light articles, taking some time to enjoy the day and getting plenty of sleep. I feel better today, and can actually think about the writing. Sometimes, we just need to let the brain rest, let the body enjoy some restful time and sleep always helps. It's taken me two weeks to reach this point... I understand that yours is due this week, so you've a more tight time constraint. Don't worry, just your body telling you to take some time for yourself.
I hope you'll feel better Emi!!! (((HUGS)))
*hugz back* Thanks Beth. The re-assignment is done. I think I did the right thing because I'm starting to feel better already .
Writer's block...! How many of us suffer from it sometimes....esp. when it's for a 'job' rather than pure enjoyment. I think it's more like the 'pressure' of getting the assignment done that's probably getting to you.....? Well, just focus on other things for a while, and then one morning brace yourself for it and just get it done with! meanwhile, here's a hug!
Thanks Beth. I'd like to have a big pizza with everything on it . But have to go to sleep now. It's almost midnight here. I'll dream about that free lunch Beth .
Thanks everyone for your posts and for making me feel better. Will go to sleep now. Good night all!
Maybe this will help Crazed

But i have to show that I am all fine and happy in front of my son and hubby. Its frustrating. Have you ever felt like this and then what one needs to do? It is hard to smile when actually i don even feel like reacting.

Have you ever been offered a writing assignment because of your Hub Pages writing?I only got an offer once to write an article for a company's website based on my writing on Hub Pages. Just curious as to how many, if any, offers the writers here have had and was it worth your effort.

How do you motivate yourself when you are sad, down or sick?Especially when dealing with chronic illness, and an unforgiving work/study schedule, housework, cooking, additional (important) study, writing, personal development, and exercise routines seem to be often left by the wayside.Any and all...

Go to stats for your individual hubs and look for any that have 'frequently searched keywords that aren't in the title. Now ADD them to the title. I did this with the 10 or so hubs I could do it for and still I'm getting about 150 more views per day.

Is there something that's been haunting you for a long time now?Confess to your fellow hubbers to feel better and get it off your chest...Mine is this,I fanned a person who always got rave reviews and I read their hubs leaving nice comments, they never once visited mine nor replied back nor fanned...
