Last month I was tearing up the page...cranking out the writing and sending it out into the world. This month? The best I can do is stolen moments here and there adding paragraphs or jotting down character profiles. Plus, oh, the cherry blossoms compete for my attention...
Best/quirkiest methods for finding focus and energy? Huh? Thanks.

I've found, for me, the best way to get started again is to do something completely different. That may be a me thing - I always find it difficult to stick with a project to completion. I grind to a halt, then have a refresher by writing something completely different. Then eventually I can resume work on whatever I stopped before.
As for writing in general... I really can't help you, there Tongue.
