I think I really have writing fatigue right now! I still haven't tried writing anything new, but I have been going over my memoir and continually finding errors. And I'm still not done with that! I do have some ideas for another possible diary novel that picks up where the first one leaves off, but haven't gotten around to writing them down yet. But at least I have something in mind.
As far as some of the ideas above go, I think I've been taking too long a break and really need to get back into the mode. But as always, I have been reading, whether or not I consider what I am currently reading to be inspiring. As long as I am reading something. I try to get out of the house, though mostly to go to other places. I'm not really an outdoor person. And getting out is a bit hard right now because the summer weather is so hot right now. But I try, even if it's only for a while.
Now two fellow workers are making plans to write books as well. One is planning to do it old school--on a typewriter. She is waiting for one she ordered to arrive. This got me wondering if I should try this method. I would have to obtain a typewriter somehow. Who knows how much it could be? And it's been years since I've used one of those things. The one girl said it would be easier to view what is written when done on a typewriter. I agreed, in that I have to keep on printing copies from the computer. That uses up ink and paper and those can be expensive. It's also easier to view the printed copy than to view the work on a screen. But on a typewriter you can view your work as you type, with no screen. So as you can see, either method has its advantages and disadvantages, even if typewriters are so old-fashioned, as I can picture some people saying right now:) Would you dare still use one in this day and age?
