Unfortunately it appears I am going to have to take advantage of my contingency of having a two day lag period in the Story a Day challenge. My health is hindering my ability to write (and other things in general): I’m able to jot down some ideas for stories but my brain isn’t staying switched on long enough to actually write them out, nor are my hands capable of translating the words from mind to screen/paper.
It’s disappointing, and I could try and push through but I know that will only make things worse – I’ll struggle to create something decent, my confidence will be challenged and then my enthusiasm will falter and I’ll question my ability to finish because what I’m producing will be of poor quality. Even now I’m finding it difficult to complete sentences. I put the two day lag in place to allow me the recourse to do exactly this without too much guilt or pressure and so I shouldn’t be ashamed of having to use it.
So, I’ll be back. Once I’ve had some rest and am able to recouporate I will have had time to think up many more story ideas and be in a good position to catch up. My goal was to write thirty-one stories in May and that is something I can still accomplish.
