First, I'd just like to say I have a book giveaway happening right now. You should enter.
Insecure Writer's Support Group
A double whammy post today! I have the Insecure Writer's Support Group and #WriteMotivation today.
IWSG is posted the first Wednesday of every month. It is the brain child of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. Get your fears and insecurities out or give words of encouragement. We're writers, let's support each other!
This month's co-hosts are Murees Dupe, Alexia Chamberlynn, Chemist Ken, and Heather Gardner! Don't forget to visit them and thank them for helping out.
This month, my insecurity is tiredness. I am exhausted. Especially when I get home from the day job. The only easy thing about the 6am shift is I can get 10K steps in no problem. It doesn't help I forget to take a break. There's so much too do. I am jealous of people who have day jobs that let them plot and think about writing. I'm running a kitchen and don't have the brain cells to spare! When I get home, I crash pretty hard. Naps happen and they are great. If I get a decent enough nap then that evening I'll feel energized enough to write, but it doesn't happen as much as I'd like. I wish caffeine would help, but all it does it make it impossible to sleep when I need to get to bed at night.
All this makes for sporadic writing. I try to utilize my days off and energy when I have it, but some days it's just not there. It's hard not to beat myself up over it. I'm a big advocate of figuring out what works best for YOU, but there's still guilt that I'm wasting my time not writing because I'm too tired to coherently string a sentence together.
Yup, I skipped the mid-month check-in because the 15th fell on a Sunday and was part of the blogging break I took. Sue me. =P I wasn't idly sitting by though. I was working on my goals.
I'm feeling a little repetitious in my goals, but hey, it's working, so I'm going to keep on keeping. Since summer is here (I think. We are talking Michigan) I'm adding a few crafting goals as well.
