I know I have missed the last check-in for ROW80, so here’s my update.
Since I validated my NaNoWriMo win I’ve not written more for that story. I have written a few short stories for ROW80, but I started one that turned out to hit a bit too close to home and it brought back a few memories I’d rather put behind me.
But then again, writing is therapeutic, so I guess it’s good to get it all out.
So yeah, for the very first time, I kind of managed to trigger myself. That, combined with the cold weather (it’s freezing but there’s no snow yet) and dark meant I’d get up for my part-time job, go back to bed in the afternoon and write/study at night.
SAD never used to affect me this badly. But “holidays” (well, time off work but not away from anything else) are within sight (19 days to go!) and I’ve got a lot to do and finish until then, so the pressure acts as a good motivator to beat the blues.
Maybe it’s because I’m a journalist, but I work best under the pressure of a deadline.
Not much else to report at this point. Hopefully next week will be better!
Check how the other ROW80 participants are doing!
