  • Mood:

Wave of Inspiration

I've been under the weather. Things were actually going well for a while. I was making great progress with editing, and I was loving posting my answers to the NaNo or Not tag on my Instagram. But my mood started to drop, and my progress slowed with it.

I could feel myself leaning into the pressure, wanting to keep up the pace. But I know that's not good for me. So, I've been slowing down with some reading and a lot of gaming the past few days.

In the end, taking care of yourself has to come first. It was exciting to be on that wave of inspiration, and I'm thankful for it. But I know that energy never lasts for long. I'll keep making progress at my own pace, whatever that naturally is.
