I've been feeling very uninspired to write since I finished my July 'Watson's Woes' daily challenge. I can't even bring myself to respond to feedback.

For the past couple of years, winter challenges and anonymous exchanges have made up the bulk of my writing, but I can't feel bothered at the moment. I missed the dS Secret Santa sign-up, watched the HLH deadline float past me on the river of time, and didn't throw any nominations into the Yuletide hat. Holmestice sign-ups close tonight, which I might, theoretically, be interested in.

I'm just feeling quite anhedonistic.

I worry that I'll regret not signing up, if I don't. Could be rather depressing to not be looking forward to giving or receiving stories in December. On the other hand, I would hate to commit to something, and then not actually write it.

*sighs* Maybe I'll be a pinch-hitter?

Anyone out there have some enthusiasm to spare? I could sure use some right about now.

Commit to ONE story and I'll commit to finishing my Teen Wolf fic. Mutual energy!

Deal. Thank you, write_light, I needed the nudge!

Man, I need to watch that show sometime. So many of my favorite authors are writing in the Teen Wolf fandom.

Yeah, I haven't written anything since June. : ( In my case it's still my unrequited love fucking up my head and taking over the energy that used to go into writing.

But I'm still signing up for Yuletide! I really wouldn't want to miss that--now I just have to find some fandoms that I could possibly write...

Good luck waking up your writing brain!

*nods* Hopefully I'll find some options, since I failed to nominate anything. Thanks, luzula!

I've been feeling similarly flat about writing recently - but I signed up for Holmestice in the hope it would help kickstart some creative juices. If nothing else having a deadline can motivate me to skip past the existential angst and just do something... Maybe it will work for us both? Hope you rediscover your mojo regardless <3

I sent in an 11th hour sign-up. I've always been good at meeting deadlines in the past, so hopefully it'll inspire me. Thanks, cherrytide!

Wish I did :( I haven't written a word since Tammy died in the spring. I've tried, but the words aren't there.

My sympathies. You deserve time to grieve, and creative work takes a lot of energy. *hugs*
