#33: Confessions of an Anxious Writer

Happy Sunday, little vamps!

If you're new here, welcome to my bi-weekly blog! This is the place where I'll be summing up any progress I've made in any and all aspects of my life, not just writing! And if you're a regular visitor to the site, welcome back! :)

I want to first make it apparent that, while I don't have much to say on the matter of writing or editing, I DO have a lot to say about my current mental health situation as well as the funk my family seems to be steeped in currently. I know, I know... you're not really here to read about that, but I can't avoid talking about it when it's all these past two weeks have been.

Thankfully, it hasn't been ALL bad, but this last week alone was probably one of the worst weeks of my life. And I know that makes me sound dramatic and desperate for attention or something along those lines, but I just don't know how to handle it anymore. And this crisis within my family has only worsened over the weekend. My Mom's even threatened to leave the house for good, stranding me with my Dad. I don't want to bad talk my own parents, but... this environment is just not good for me. I can't write whenever I hear raised voices throughout the house. I can't find peace and quiet, and even when I manage to, I think of how miserable my Mom is and how miserable I am. I don't think I've ever felt so low.

Now, what does any of that have to do with my progress with my current manuscript? Well. EVERYTHING, honestly!

The creativity can't shine when I'm worried and anxious over something that I can't prevent. And I'm trying not to make this blogpost TOO personal, but I just had to get this out there. So the next time you wonder if I'm writing when I'm supposed to be, it's just. not true anymore. That doesn't mean that I'll stop writing. It's the one happy thing I have left. I love my characters too much to stop telling their story. Life will get better, it just HAS to.

In the meantime, please be patient with me. In writing, in art, and in life.

And I'll see you all next time, little vamps~
