Hey everyone, how are you?
I am not going to the creative writing group today. I am still feeling low mentally and don’t think I can handle it.
This does not mean that I am not going to get any writing done. I am going to try and write at home. I want to get the feelings that I have in my head out onto paper, to see if that helps. I also have other ideas for characters and scenes that I want to get down. The difference between me writing at home and going to the group is that at home I am on my own. I don’t think that I can be around a load of other people. Even though I know that they will be supportive. The thought of it just fills me with dread.
I am trying to do more to try and get myself out of this downer. One thing that I want to do is read. And try and immerse myself in a completely different world to the one that I am currently in. I have a fiction book that I want to read and a non-fiction book that has been recommended to me that I want to start. I know that my motivation has been low as well. And as I am struggling, one thing that has also been recommended is a documentary on Netflix. So, I want to watch that. I don’t know if I will do that today or over the weekend. It is a couple of hours long.
Although I am not going to the creative writing group I do still have to go out. I have to go to the pharmacy and get the remainder of my medication. I have some owing to me and also an urgent prescription that my doctor forgot to do when I was there the other day. So, I do have to go out. It won’t be for long, but I am trying to look at the positive as I know that I that it will be good to get out for a little while. Rather than stay cooped up in my room, which is what I did yesterday.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
