Gloomily Yours

Sadly, I haven’t been very creative this week. Every time a prompt appears in my feed, I diligently save it in my folder with the intention to write something later. But night after night, later has faded into sleep. Also, I’ve been stressed about some stuff, but I gently remind myself… it’s not that important. Family (including Mr. Gatsby), health, work: those are hugely important. Everything else? Less so. Much less. The news can get me feeling hopeless about the future too, but I at least I only read it and don’t watch it obsessively on TV like many do. That would drive me more nuts. Doubly depressing this week was the weather, turning cold and rainy again, triggering a bunch of migraines. Or one long migraine rather, broken up with meds. Hopefully I’ll get back on schedule soon and be able to tackle the items on my writing to-to list. 😐

  3. Bad news and bad weather and migraines: I think you’re allowed to just keep creativity on the back-burner for a bit with all that going on. I hope you feel better soon! πŸ€—

  9. Gees not good to hear you are so down and out Paula, but you know everyone is allowed to feel gloomy, so don’t feel so bad. The weather is enough to make most folks want to tear their heart out. Here in the UK, it supposed to be spring and l have to keep asking who cancelled the season?

    However, l have completed Gordon Lightfoot for your dedication, and here are ten of his best tracks πŸ™‚

  10. Sometimes I can spend too much time writing to respond to challenges and I realize it’s good to take a little break to rejuvenate. Rest up Paula and remember to take care of your inner spirit! ❀

  11. I save all kinds of prompts to challenges to do later…and then it gets later and later and they never get done.
    Hope you get to feeling better, soon.
