And not in a good way. I’m floundering in mud and have no traction. I’ve been making blunders all over the place, and my writing is suffering because I’ve started to fear making stupid mistakes. Not a good way to write. I just sent out my 199th submission the other day. I knew I’ve been sending a lot of subs out, but this number caught me off guard. I’d already been starting to doubt my short story writing as I haven’t gotten a nibble from WOTF in a long time, but really, that’s just THAT VOICE that I’ve mentioned before, the one I’ve specifically instructed you to ignore. I’m tired and all the negative thoughts are starting to circle with little shark hats on.
I’m going to take a few days and read, get some extra sleep. I’m still going to write, and maybe even crit, that tends to pull me out of this. (It also helps that the hubby gets back from his business trip this evening and I get some help with the kids).
Back in a few days.
