Hitting the Wall.

I've gotten to the point in this project where it's starting to feel like work and it's not as fun. I'm not really excited about the books that I have lined up to read next. I feel kind of blah.

Yup, right on schedule: I've hit the wall.

And to be honest, I'm not surprised. When I was training for the Breast Cancer 3-Day, the same thing happened. I got training fatigue. If you commit to a big, long-term project there's going to come a point (or two) where you don't feel inspired anymore. It happens. So I'm trying to put this in perspective and not take this feeling too seriously.

I decided to read something fun and quick -- I would liken it to cotton candy -- to give myself a jump start back into the fun mode. And seriously, what better way to do this than to read Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad? Yes, the sequel to her first YA novel that I loved, to almost embarrassing degree.

Stay tuned. This project is far from over -- in a good way.

Maggie, I am glad that you aren't giving up. I know you can do it! I also have hit a minor barrier here and there. I sometimes wish that I could just do nothing but read and write all day. Thankfully, the sun is out now - I can chill on the deck with a beer and a book in the evenings when I get home. Doesn't get much better than that!
