You see, me saying I was speeding up and positively gloating on nearly managing to reach the 5K words total in a week was asking for trouble, wasn’t it?
You know how it is, one minute riding the crest of a wave buoyed by your success…
The next wiped out by the very same wave and finding yourself face-planted in the sand…
I have been unwell and it has been all I can do to manage my day job tasks, which must take precedence, without having the addition of my writing on top. I won’t go into what’s wrong with me but I know what it is and that it is likely to last for a while (I also know it isn’t serious).
Anyway, I’ve had to reassess my capacity for work and sadly that means putting my writing onto the back-burner, unless I find I’m having a good day. The pressure I was putting myself under was becoming overwhelming so this decision, whilst hard, makes sense. Hopefully I will be back up to full speed again very soon. 😀
Because of my state of mind I haven’t been particularly focused on any writing things and even if I have done anything I can’t now remember what it was so bear with me and I shall get my trusty pad out for the week to come and write things down.
I hope you have all had a much better week than me and for what they are worth I shall leave you with the numbers… xx
