[quote=""lauragill""]I just came away from a six-month writing project, and now have absolutely no energy or drive to start writing anything else, much less the final book in my series. I've had these dry spells before, but they're always so debilitating when they happen. It doesn't feel natural to not be writing something. :confused: [/quote]

I agree. When I get a dry spell in my original works, I tweak some of the old fanfic I wrote when I was in college. But If I'm totally dry, I just take a break, and maybe read some other fiction about my topic.
