Rough Couple Of Days

Writing has been kinda fun and I did have an idea for this week's story, but I've had a pretty rough couple of days. I'm not in a good mood and haven't been now since Tuesday afternoon. If I'm lucky. I've started the story and gotten a little bit through it, but no way am I on schedule. These stories aren't as long as I want them to be either. I wanted them to be about 7k words long and they've only been 5k or so. It might not sound like much but it sure can feel it. At least I've been able to do it though and get some writing in. I can be thankful for that. Now if I could just get reviews and actual sales, rather than just through the free promotion, then I would be good.

I've just been in a bit of depressive slump and, thanks to that, I've not really had much energy to do anything. I hate it but I've kinda just sat around for a while. At least it's not as bad as it used to be. It used to be that when this would happen I'd spend a whole lot longer slumped around. Hopefully I'll pick up soon and be enough of a badass to save the president AND finish writing my story. The main point of this little challenge I set myself was more to write though, not really to stick to a deadline. I wanted to practice my writing and get things out there to build up my profile. I can do that if it takes two weeks. It just would have been pretty cool to be able to say I wrote and released a story every week. If I could keep up the ideas then that would actually be a pretty cool idea. It's a shame I'm not that much of a writing machine.

I have to pick myself up, dust myself off, and hopefully the people I feel I need around me will be around me. Nothing like being lonely to make you realise just how much you need someone in your life. You'd think I'd have learned that lesson by now.


  1. No need to be so hard on yourself, Mark. You're accomplishing quite a bit. 5,000 words is a ton in my book (get it?). I haven't written a word in almost a month. Probably more. It just happens. At least YOU are writing. Stick with it. Screw a schedule. And, yeah, being alone sucks. I hope you find someone too.

  2. i hear you...sometimes you have to do that...well life seems like a series of picking yourself up and getting going something to give you a little traction cause once you get going momentum will pull you along...smiles.
