Winter doldrums and writing. by Karen H. Vaughan.

People handle the winter blahs well or NOT. Some use the angst of the long cold days and bury themselves in their offices and create. I wish I could do that. The stress I was feeling had me blocked creatively. I could not string two sentences together and my characters were avoiding me.  I am over it now but it was frustrating at the time.  How do you deal with stress and the business of writing?Does it flumox you? Do you weather through it like a trouper and create angst ridden stories? I wish I could do all this. My brain shuts down and I wonder why I started writing in the first place. It’s not a great place to be so I decided on days I was anywhere near stressed I would avoid writing entirely.
