Hey everyone, how are you?
After a day of writing yesterday, I have hardly made a dent in the pile of papers that have stacked up from when I was in pain.
The problem is that all of the things that I have to do are large and there are no quick things that I can do and knock off the to do list. I have even started writing in the evening, rather than relaxing and allowing myself to wind down before going to sleep. And although I have only just started doing that, it has two sides to it. The first is that I naturally am more use to writing in the evening/night time. The other side is that it is making me go to bed later and still be thinking about everything. I usually would use that time to read, game or watch television. This would then help me go to sleep. But I am sacrificing that to get things done. And I know that it is most likely going to have a negative effect on me. All I can do is keep an eye on it and not do it for too long.
Today, I am going to be writing some more. My aim for the day is to write my mental health narrative for the book chapter, or at the very least, draft out an outline. If I can get that done then that will be a huge weight off of my mind. I have read the articles that I printed, which I mentioned in a previous blog and that was one of the three things that I needed to do for the book chapter at this moment in time. I also need to look up articles on meta narrative as well, but I am not going to worry about that today. Writing the mental health narrative, maybe slightly triggering but I know that it will be okay. As this chapter is going into a book that is going to be huge. So, I am really looking forward to the writing no matter how hard it maybe.
The one thing that is stopping me from writing all day today, is that, I have to go to the doctor. It is not until the afternoon, so I will try and write in the morning. But like I have mentioned in other blogs I am rubbish in the morning. So, it is most likely to be when I get back from the doctor and in the evening. I do want to chill as well at some point this week. My aim is to have a day at home in the week. Which I technically had yesterday, but I was writing. On the day I usually have at home I like to relax and not think about all the things that I have to do in the rest of the week. I don’t know if I will get that this week though.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
