Easing Back Into Writing

Hey everyone, how are you?

Today, I am going to try and ease myself back into writing.


I have not written all week, due to being ill with my mental health. And I have missed not writing, so today, as planned I am going to try and get a little bit done and ease myself back into the process. Whilst I have not been writing anything, I have still been thinking about what I am writing and how to go about structuring the prose. I am going to be looking at the book chapter as that is the piece with the closest deadline and I have a meeting on Wednesday. Given that I had to miss the last meeting, I want to be able to make up for what I had not done the previous week. That being said, I am not going to force myself to write x number of words by Wednesday. I am instead, going to plan out the section that I am currently writing and highlight the areas of the narrative and research that I can use. I will then have a clearer idea of what needs to go where.

It will be nice to get back into writing, but I am not expecting myself to do hours upon hours in one day. I am going to take it easy and not put pressure myself. I will do bits here and there throughout the day and allow myself time to rest in between. One of the things that I have been doing since I came out of the hospital is reading. Again, not loads in a short amount of time, but a few pages here and there. It soon builds up and I finished the fiction book that I was reading. I have now moved onto another non-fiction book that has been recommended to me by my doctor. I want to read as much as I can of it by Wednesday which is when he is next calling me. There is also a podcast that comes with the book that I am going to start listening to as well. I’m hoping that the advice in the book and the podcast help.

I am also going to try and just do more in general today. I am building my drumming routine back up so that, I can go back to practicing three times a day. I also need to go out and have a walk down to the high street to get my medication from the pharmacy. I was going to go yesterday but was reminded that it was a bank holiday here in the UK do it was shut. It will also be good to have a walk with some music on and clear my head of the last week. It has not been easy and I came close to giving up at points. I’m hoping to walk down to the high street and then get a bus or a taxi back. So that, I won’t be out for too long. I’m hoping that things will continue to improve and that I can get through the weekend unscathed.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.

  1. It’s been roughly about four months since I have been posting a blog regularly due to some personal things. Now, that I am back at it and able to write again, I have learned that writing often is definitely they key to being successful at writing. it was one of the things I missed the most. It’s been really rough trying to get back into the swing of things. What has been helping me is just being authentic when I’m writing and write about stuff that I care about. I hope this helps. I’m glad you’re feeling better.
