Fast forward to the now. I’ve watched more news in the last 6 weeks than I have in the last 13 years. Seriously. And I’ve discovered a few things with the perspective of a clear mind forged from a 13-year hiatus from the ridiculous:
I’m having a hard time writing right now. It’s not because of stress. I think I write better in times of stress – which is why approaching deadlines bring out some of my best work.
But, right now I sit at my computer and I stare, then I feel fatigued, finally I get back up and find something else to do. Then I tell myself to go back to my computer, sit and stare, feel fatigued, then get up and find something else to do. It’s the never-ending, exhausting cycle.
