Checking In: First Week of School Edition

I missed Monday's post. Again. Well, here I am, letting you know I'm still alive, if anyone cares.

I have gotten a little bit of writing done. Not much, but a bit of progress on a short story I've been kicking around for a little bit. In fact, when I'm done here, I'm going to put on my headphones and bang on it some more.

I started radiography school this week, and today I alternated between this:

And this:

Then, at about 1pm this afternoon:

(note: This was only the second day of classes)

But after some study time, I'm like:

So, yeah. I've got two years of this roller coaster of emotions so succinctly told in gif form. Time to go write now.









26 Things In Alphabetical Order

Ok. So, after last week's IWSG sobfest, I'm going to try to get back on track here with my Monday posts.

I was struggling to come up with something to write about, so I'm going to take a prompt from this list and just go from there. Without any further ado, I present -

IWSG


So much insecurity this month. First, I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but I haven't been blogging at all for the last couple of months. In fact, I'm not sure if I'm even still on the IWSG list anymore. I could have checked that before posting this, but I worked twelve hectic hours last night and I just woke up from a too short nap and realized that it was the first Wednesday of the month, and I might as well get this posted.

I'm sure  you might have figured out from my tone that I haven't been writing much. I am so discouraged at this point. I have dumped yet another novel idea for lack of progress. I have a list of short stories that I am trying to edit, update and compile into a collection, but other than a few fits and starts in the middle of the night, I just can't get the momentum going.

The worst part of all this is that I know this can be done, and I know that every once in a while I can actually put out something good, but right now all I can think about is the bad, and I keep asking myself why I even try.

Sorry for the tone. I hope it doesn't sound too whiny or negative, but it's just how I feel at this time. And that's what IWSG is for right?
