Getting set up and then having to slow down for life has a way of destroying momentum. There has to be a better way. Sadly, I’m not the sort who does well with the stresses of family and holidays. It takes far more emotional energy that I have to spare on many days.
This directly affects my writing because writing, for me, is very intense on an emotional level. I don’t get caught up in Golden Word Syndrome, nor do I make the mistake of thinking my writing is “my baby” but when I’m in The Zone of writing, my emotions give me the steam and momentum to get the words down on the page.
With momentum gone, it’s a devil of a time getting it back. I’m hoping I have it. Especially in light of the fact that I’ve spent the past hour trying to get wordpress to even post this.
