Dear Life

Dear Life,

I know that I am at the end of my prescription and at the end of refills until I see a doctor again. I embrace the vertigo and sluggishness of not being able to take my pills for a couple days in a row. I drag myself out of bed on days when it’s the last thing I want to do, or something I wouldn’t mind doing it if I didn’t feel so profoundly and inexplicably unready to get up. I accept that sometimes my job is crazy and I have to do my best to just laugh at it instead of taking it personally. I agree to make plans even when it feels like everything is piling up and I have so much to worry about doing, especially in light of the fact that it’s not actually that much and the feeling of being overwhelmed is just there for other reasons.

It sucks, but I am meditating and drinking plenty of water and trying.

Love,

Me

Daily Writing Progress #33

Wednesday, October 12th – Friday, October 21st

  • Sort of missed these days.
  • I did some outlining in a program that doesn’t let me run a word count, plus some keys on my laptop keyboard are crapping and really need to get repaired.

Saturday, October 22nd

  • Project: Todd, draft 1
    • Word Count: 1151
  • Thoughts: In college, a friend and I came up with in college, based of a favorite show and our takes on what their actors would be like if it were a live action show instead of animated. It was ridiculous and hilariously fun, and now I’m finally writing the story of two of them. (Side characters that we made up completely. One of the actors’ ex best friend, mainly. But reincarnations of two of the main characters have worked their way into my NaNo novel as well.)

Sunday, October 23rd

  • Project: Todd, draft 1
    • Total Word Count: 1620
    • New Words: 469
  • Thoughts:  This is going to need some work, but I’m proud of how far I’ve gotten with it so far! Most of the plot is already there in my head and has been for a long time… lurking… waiting… It’s just the details and some of connecting the dots that’s giving me trouble. But I’m almost to the fun angsty part.

Monday, October 24th

  • Project: QWERTY post
    • Word Count: 412
  • Thoughts:  Typed on Evernote in my phone, woohoo computer problems lol.

Tuesday, October 25th

  • Project: Todd, draft 1
    • Total Word Count: 1721
    • New Words: 101
  • Thoughts: I gave my partner a critique on a short story (read it, you know you want to) and got a critique in return, so even though I  didn’t add much to the word count it felt like a good writing day all around. 😊
