I didn’t write anything other than a blog yesterday. I was going to write, it was in my plans to write. Then, I got tired and my head hurt and my sinus infection was kicking my butt. After all of that, I sat up and watched Sims 4 videos on Youtube until 4 this morning. I just couldn’t bring myself to write anything yesterday.
I haven’t lost my spark. I have dried up on ideas or taken a wrong turn. I know where the story is going and I kind of, somewhat know how to get there. The problem is that I need sleep. I am so tired. I can’t seem to catch up on my sleep and it seems like I won’t be catching up on it until some time after the holidays.
Though I didn’t write last night, I have not fallen behind. I am still on track. As long as I don’t skip any more days I will be good to go, but yesterday was just impossible.
I got off work at 5am. I got home, considered not sleeping. Fell asleep for 2 hours, just to get up and go to my Physical Therapy appointment. I made it back home, talked to my mom and brother and then took another 2 hour nap. Or maybe three hour nap.
After my second nap I was up and out the door again, going out to eat with the family. Once we got back home I sat down to watch a few shows that I watch with my family and I fell asleep for another hour. After that nap I had trouble going to bed last night, leaving me still awake at 4am. It was a rough day for sleep and I am feeling it today.
While I would have loved to sleep today, I had to get up and do some shopping for Christmas. Now my head hurts (again) and I am so tired. I feel like someone unplugged me from the outlet and my energy is just forever draining until I crash.
I plan on writing tonight, trying to get my word count back up and back on track. Trying to push my story forward without hating it. While I would rather sleep, I will push myself to do what I need to do. Writing is a dream of mine and I won’t let sleep get in the way.
What are your challenges when it comes to writing?
