When was the last time I wrote fiction? Susan and Lucy vs. the Wolf, probably. Disqus tells me that that was 22 days ago.
Does that mean that I've been making progress in non-fiction related areas? No.
I do nothing. I am month. I feel useless.
When things are going right, writing isn't work. Editing, sure. Keeping things consistent, definitely. Research is a black hole from which you might never return. But the actual creativity? It just flows.
I haven't flowed lately. I feel so useless lately.
