I feel like I’ve been managing my depression well the last couple of weeks. There haven’t been any major depressive episodes. I’m trying to build on that streak.
I have felt my confidence in my creativity waning though. I go through ups and downs where I feel so gung-ho and like I can write up a storm to feelings of—I’ve got nothing important to say. It’s all been said already.
Thank goodness, I understand writing as a process, which buoys me up when I feel stuck or generally blah with my work.
And hey, I do have a big pile of papers waiting for me to grade them, so I can do that instead of writing!
Nice way to procrastinate, Sheila!
