Hitting A Wall


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?
