A group for the discussion of the written word. Though we'd like to see folks active in the industry, you need not be published or working in the industry to join in and ideally there will be help and motivation for those wanting to write. All that is required is a love of the written word and an interest in how it's done.
I have this 9-5 that requires no creativity. Well, figuratively my workplace is a circus of buffoonery, so i do assign imginative jobs to everyone, like clown, juggler, the guy who shovels shit from the floor, etc. At any rate; i write - let's just say sometimes. Sometimes, when i am not trying to keep my wits about me in the noise of the calliope, i write. This week though, and the past few weeks, and weekends, i have been exhausted in my brain. Intellectually i'm mush. I feel guilt for not doing more to quit the circus and start my own sideshow act. This is what I'm getting at - does anyone else here feel like they are too tired from work to work?? (Im obviously referring to folks who are writers as a side hustle, not those who make a living wage with words. This is also not writers block. Im exhusted, not stuck.) I don't know if I'm looking for advice, commiseration, or something i cannot define with the words i know.
