A third journal of personal musings
|So, I think it's coming back a little bit. I've actually been playing RE4 on my PS4. Now that might seem like nothing on its own, but I've been struggling to stay interested in things, including other games. So I'm hopeful. I've also been going through stuff with my 13 Curves story, so I'm hoping that at least it's small baby steps in the right direction.
That's all I really was hoping for. I'm hoping to get back into something more comfortable, writing wise, and push myself into a NaNoWriMo like situation that I was planning on doing last year until Covid hit. Last March actually. I was hoping maybe March this year, but we will see. Which month doesn't matter to me (as long as it isn't near the holidays), but if I can give myself a month to push myself in the same way people do during November, then I'll be happy. I hate that regular NaNo doesn't work for me. Working retail does that to you I suppose. There's just a mental fatigue and a creative shutdown that happens towards the end of the month as it picks up at work and becomes more stressful and also irritating because people tend to forget holidays happen at the same time of the year on a continuous yearly basis.
Anyway, I don't know why I feel like I have to update here with my writing mentality, but it still feels like home and I feel like it's my duty to. I used to feel so comfortable writing here. To the point where I couldn't seem to write anywhere else. The only reason I write off-site and off-line, is mostly because of NaNo and trying to find a way to keep track of my word count. I found Scrivener and that has helped tremendously. It has also helped me keep all of my notes and stuff organized. I'm trying to find a balance between the two, because I miss this being my writing haven.
I don't want to think about any of that yet. I'll get myself caught up and stressed out and it isn't that deep.
So, that's where I am now. A short and sweet update, but a good one. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
