I just posted the following on reddit and thought it summed up why I haven’t posted here recently. I would say “Enjoy,” buy I don’t enjoy being so drained.
I have plenty of things I could write about. Short stories I could work on, novels to edit, notes to make on worldbuilding and characters. I have a blog that’s been neglected for a week and a half.
I haven’t done any creative writing in four days. I didn’t get a lot done then.
Some of why I haven’t written is that I work long shifts. Ten hours on overtime days, twelve hours otherwise. Today is the third day of six in a row.
When I get home, I wash up, eat, then fall asleep. Falling asleep might come as a ten minute nap, but it lasts for an extra hour past that.
I’d be happy to write even a hundred words a day, if only because progress is progress. Right now, I’ve been so depleted, I’m not sure what to do.
I’ll find my motivation again. I’m not sure how, but it will come. I have enough thoughts circling in my head that something is going to demand my attention. When that happens, things will get better for me.
