Did you know that there are people in this world who just don’t understand what it is to be a writer? I mean they seriously do not understand the struggle…and the struggle is real, folks!
Not only is it a BIG step to take to decide that you are going to live a little lighter in the finances so that you can give your craft a bit more time, but it also means that you run the risk of mental fatigue.
Sure, mental fatigue can happen to anyone, but I tend to think it is more troublesome when it strikes a creative writer.
I have been stricken with mental fatigue this week. Yes, I have managed to write a daily post or two, but they were each a struggle to get through. Even typing this, I feel like my brain is throbbing.
Really I just want to go back to sleep. Alas! That is not possible because my imagination has not stopped nor has it taken the hint. Actually, I think it may be confused as well.
If you are suffering from mental fatigue, don’t beat yourself up. Just take a break, take a week off even if you feel like you are going insane because of it. We all need a good sabbatical, even from our craft.
Honestly my manuscripts have been giving me the evil eye all week…I haven’t touched them, not a single one of them. Its rough I tell you!
Hopefully I will find myself refreshed and ready to go next week. I have GOT to get these projects finished already.
Onward and upward, folks.
