Like many of you, I’ve been experiencing an extra measure of fatigue so it’s been harder to be creative. I love my profession and get to help a lot of people but know part of caring for others is also making sure I take time for self-care. That’s not always easy to do.
I started writing in earnest about eight months ago and it has been a wonderful way for me to recharge. However, lately it has been more of a chore. Sometimes I have a problem giving myself the same grace I would give to someone else facing the same thing. I’ve been frustrated with my lack of productivity and inability to write as much as I have in the past. I finally realized that wasn’t healthy for me.
I decided to give myself a bit more grace and go back to my commitment to writing something every day, even if it is just a sentence. This week has been more productive and I’m feeling better about what I’ve been able to accomplish. I may not get as much writing done as I want, but I’m almost finished with chapter two of Rebellion-Dragonborn Book 4, so that’s good.
