Middle Week Slump

I have always been one of those people who has always hated Wednesdays. It’s not the beginning of the week when you feel (slightly) ready to get into a whole new week and it’s not close enough to start enjoying the end of the week. Although I am aware of in some industries like hospitality and retail, they don’t really get “weekends”.

Sometimes though I have been wondering I am the only person who actually dislikes Wednesdays? Even when a friend sends me a “Happy Hump Day” picture, doesn’t normally getting me going. Since I’ve stopped my blogging challenge I am struggling to find something to blog about that is not on a Friday or Monday as well.

Today I have just been having idea after idea in my mind and  for some reason I am lacking the motivation to get these ideas started. It is almost like I have so many ideas it’s overwhelming unmotivating. I am starting to wonder if it is a good idea for me to start a fantasy novel, I don’t know if there is a set age date and I have no formal training to do so. I was listening to Enya all day and when I wasn’t working I had “The Hobbit” on in the background and I started to imagine a love interest for Thorin in my mind. Then during the rest of the day I started to create a back story for her, I came up with an perfect name and came up with a whole new race in Middle Earth. I am seriously considering investing in a smaller laptop (Notebook) just to write and get these ideas down and see what I can create!

I guess I’m writing to find out…How do you get past that mid week slump (if you have one)?

  1. You know how you beat the middle week slump? Sleep until it’s Friday lol. But seriously…Tuesdays are like that for me. Mondays I have energy and positivity. And then Tuesday is like a second Monday and I just can’t handle it. haha. As far as writing a novel goes…do it. I don’t think you need formal training. It’s all about a story. If you can create a story…you can write a novel. I keep a notebook with me at all times because I’ll think of an interesting character or a set of dialogue or a clever line, or a good metaphor, etc and then I can write it in that notebook and save it for later for when I can develop it more fully. That way you’ll never lose your ideas, whether they be good or not. 🙂


    1. That sounds like a really good idea!lol
      I have thought about carrying a little notebook so I can write any quotes or sayings or thoughts that I have while I’m out and about. I always seem to do that and then I get home and I forget what I was thinking,lol.
