There are many different reasons for this; my university workload has been steadily creeping up and other commitments have also required my attention. However the main reason has been fatigue; having pushed myself so hard over the past three weeks or so, I believe that I have reached a saturation point.
The actual environment is also a factor. A word of advice to any authors starting their writing venture, DO NOT WRITE WITH THE TV ON! Your brain can find it hard to focus on more than one thing at once, so music is better to have on in the background rather than The Jeremy Kyle Show.
Whilst this week has been a struggle at times, my new work has reached a climax. I am getting ever closer to its conclusion and the excitement is growing. Keep watching this space for updates on my writing!
