The stress of school is really starting to get to me. I’ve only written a hundred or so words in the past two days, and if I could, I would definitely try to push through the minor mind block, but I always advise never to force yourself to write when you’re just “not feeling it,” and I really have to take my own advise in this case. When you can’t wrap your mind around what you want to happen next, there’s no use in forcing pieces to fit together. It has to come naturally.
I don’t mind using this weekend to catch up before the last few days of July creep up. I’m severely behind where I want/need to be, and usually that would definitely freak me out a little. I literally just think I don’t have the capacity to be freaked out about much of anything after the last few weeks I’ve had. I’m just sort of floating along, taking what comes and seeing how it goes.
Not the best lifestyle as a writer, but we all have our lazy days. Weeks. Months. Years……..
I’m hoping I snap back into creative overdrive soon. I’ve really been struggling especially these last few days just to balance everything. I’ve never been good at balancing.
It’s part of the learning process.
