Ok so this week was a bit of a mess. I write early most days, then was a tired mess in the evenings. The last two days were late-writing days, and I was a zombie the whole day in both cases. My mood yesterday was dire, but today I was a lot more numb than messed up. The thing is, I don’t know how to mitigate that. I’m working a more balanced week and I’m more organised now, yet I’m exhausted and my sleep keeps deteriorating. That’s a major source of stress, but I’ll have to weather that and get back on my feet soon regardless. I can’t afford to keep slipping.

Speaking of slipping, I feel like I’ve drifted past the midpoint with the latest events in the story. It’s gonna need a rewrite to better fit in any case, but I might need to airlift it during the first draft. That’s going to be an experience, but what can you do. I’m in a bit of a weird patch, but I’ll get past it. As long as I’m not losing the plot in other senses…
