#450 : Day Twenty Six : Quote of the Day!


Today was one of those days when all light seemed dull and the prospect of light at the end of the tunnel seemed bleak. That's when this quote popped up in my mailbox from a newsletter I subscribe to. Should I be happy?

My brain seems to have shut itself off today. No creative juices flowing through today. Stringing up a paragraph of words seems so herculean. I wanted to complete writing the short story I started writing last week yet I simply sat staring at the screen. Is it writer's block? Or is it a  burnout?

Whatever it is, it seems to have been triggered by something that happened today. I wonder!


  1. Yes, as writers we should avoid burnouts at all costs. But sometimes, with our regular work and family duties, it might be difficult. You will pass through these tough times and come through stronger. :) All the best.

  2. You're welcome! Here is one of my own quote to motivate you better :) https://rajashortstories.wordpress.com/2016/08/16/you-can-beat-the-shit-out-of-me/

  3. What is this ? An excuse ? :P
    I think you are getting comfortable being lazy.
    Chop chop ! Get back to work .. :)

    But on a serious note, develop an OCD that leaves you mad when there is a work incomplete.

  4. Ha ha. It's just work and life in general wrecking havoc. No excuse though :-D Thanks a ton for the motivation. It's come to an OCD of writing something daily. Hoping to develop an OCD to write better :-P

  5. Ha. Thank you. Truly motivated. That quote kind of describes my mind set right now. Given that I've hit rock bottom, there is only one way to go and that is up. Thank you :)
