A Good Night’s Sleep Can Make All the Difference

Last night I was struggling with my writing (I’ve now reached 56,163 words in the third book of my fantasy YA series! Woohoo!) but I came to a halt and couldn’t find my way forward. So I went to bed (my brain was pretty frazzled from a busy day!) and this morning a voila! The problem I was struggling with had somehow been worked out in my mind.

Perhaps it was just getting a little persepective, or maybe it was just a well rested brain that was ultimately the key but either way a good night’s sleep can make all the difference!
What helps you when you get stuck writing?
Thanks for reading! 

About the author


  1. Sleep and dreams are so good for that. I often feel the way you did. But a good night’s sleep is usually the cure. Or a quick chat with a trusted editor/beta-reader/writing buddy. That usually helps, too.

    1. I completely agree! It’s great to have someone to chat about it with because they see it from a different viewpoint and that’s just what you need sometimes 🙂

      1. It’s getting started at the moment, that’s my problem. Still I’ve got a writer’s meeting coming up soon so I’ll have to do something or I won’t have anything to submit. Once I begin I’m sure it will be ok…… Just getting sidetracked with too many projects….

      2. I know it can be so hard sometimes but I’m sure once you get going you’ll slip back into it really easily 🙂
        That’s the thing about writing, there’s no one to tell you to do it but yourself is there!

    1. Thanks so much for the encouragement! I am actually planning on doing that I think it’s an amazing way for indie authors to get their work out there 🙂
