Burn out

I've written nearly more in the past five years than I have since I was a kid. I've been very prolific. But I have to admit that lately I've been feeling burned out. it isn't too bad but writing the latest Mission book has been far harder than I expected because I'm not feeling as motivated because I'm tired. I should have finished the first draft over a month ago. I won't be finished with it until this week. Then comes the real work - the second and third drafts.

Anyway, even though it's not pleasant to hear I keep it real here on my blog. No fakery. i feel that the more enjoyable work will come next week when I start fleshing the story out and making it look like a real book. And perhaps I'll bake a magic chocolate flan cake to keep my creative juices flowing because right now they are running pretty low. when the Mission series and the other series I'm writing under a pen name is done, I'll be taking a long beak form writring.
