How stress has affected my writing.

It has been one hell of a bad trip these last few weeks. I know there are things I should be doing and books to be written but social media has thrown me for a loop.

First of all my tried and true acer laptop bit the dust. I bought a new levono  with windows 8. This was a chore to learn and I gave that one to my hubby to use as he was not as stressed as I was and wouldn’t kill the thing. I went back to using Hubs’ laptop but then a hacker nailed me on face book and I had to recreate a new account.  I was fit to be tied so the writing and editing came to a standstill til I could get it together and let the dust settle. Some people can function under duress and use that angst in their favor creatively. I am NOT one of those people.  I do have a story idea for the MYSTERY OF THE HACKED UP HACKER in mind but the bugger isn’t worth my time or energy.  Awhile back a nasty neighbor was causing stress but I managed to turn it around and find a nice way to make him croak fictionally speaking.  How do you handle stress as a writer?  Do you use it creatively or does it stymie you?  I have felt creatively blocked.before. My characters sensed my angst and ignored me.  I  think I am over it now but it is stressful.

  1. Sorry to hear about your rough time and hope things get better for you. It sucks when life throws a curve ball at us, but as authors we can turn negatives into positives. But you already know that, you’re an author! We don’t have to seethe with rage, all we have to do is grab a pen or go to our keyboard and exact revenge anyway we see fit. That’s what I do, I won’t allow life to make me its b*tch!
