Writing isn’t always easy, of course, but sometimes your struggle with a particular project has a deeper underlying cause.
Writer’s Digest editor Moriah Richard knows this from experience — while some writing peers tried to identify ways to fix a work in progress, a mentor suggested that what the project needed was to be left alone for a while.
Richard also understands that that can feel like giving up; fortunately, there are a few symptoms that signal you’re facing a bigger issue than a creative slump.
Those symptoms, plus strategies for further evaluating your work, are up at Writer’s Digest to help you decide whether it’s time to set a particular writing project aside.
