Okay, yes, I've doodled and taken copious notes in my Bible, but I haven't actually written fiction in a long time.
Writer's block? Maybe, but I don't really believe in that. More like distracted, unfulfilled, uninspired, irritated, frustrated, disappointed, unfocused, indecisive. Fearful. Dare I admit it--a lack of faith.
None of those things yield a productive life, and they surely don't yield a productive writing career. Sure, I've been busy creating websites and teaching a few classes, but nothing brings me pure joy like writing stories, and I hadn't been able to as of late.
I had to figure out why. Writing is more than just a paycheck to me. It's my calling. I know it. Several other people know it. I can't play around with it. This is what I was born to do! Days spent writing nothing at all feel like a complete waste of grace!
