This is pretty much how I feel right now. The good thing is that I don't get like this often, so I'm hoping it passes soon. I wanted to attend a homeschool convention, but it turns out ours has been canceled for this year. Even after 14+ years of homeschooling, the workshops are helpful, especially when it comes to burn-out. I always come back feeling refreshed and ready to start up again. I guess that's not going to happen this year.
I went to the Montana Homeschool Convention by myself last year. Rick and the boys went with me to Helena, but I attended the convention alone. I didn't know anyone locally who was going, so I just kept busy with the workshops I signed up for. I had really hoped there would be one this year, but I guess it's going to be postponed until 2014. A year is a long time to wait. Oh well. Hopefully, I'll snap out of this funk and get myself motivated on my own. I'm pretty good at that sort of thing — that is, when I set my mind to it.
I'm also a little burnt-out with my writing. I have some new ideas for picture books, so I'd like to get started on those and possibly start submitting to new publishers soon. I also have a middle grade novel I want to get revised and ready to go. I was thinking of self-publishing it at first, but now I'm not sure if I want to go that route or submit it to a traditional publisher.
Anyway, I hate being in a funk like this, so hopefully it will pass soon.
