Riding out a Dry Spell


Hey, we all have ’em, right? Just not feeling that special tingle. Not in the mood. No, I’m not talking about having sex. Just writing about it.

So what do you do to get over a dry spell in the bedroom or on the page?

That’s easy. Jump up on that, er, horse (man, laptop, whatever) and ride it into the sunrise. Yeah, I know you’d rather be eating Ben & Jerry’s from the carton and watching Modern Family. But look at it like this:

Writing about sex (or having it) is a lot like exercise. Starting is the hardest part. You may not feel like it, but I guarantee that once you start, you’re going to want to keep on going. Those creative juices begin to flow and suddenly you feel like you could do this forever. Of course, you can’t. People need to eat, sleep, have the occasional shower. But when you do stop, having temporarily satisfied that creative urge, you’re going to want to do it again. And again. Soon.
