I know it’s kind of trite, but today’s weather really does match my mood. Or maybe my mood matches today’s weather?
No, definitely the first option. Six glorious days of (mostly) being home, and tomorrow it’s back to work. Gloomy, rainy, snowy, cold weather definitely matches my mood.
Not even chocolate holds the cure for the back to work blues.
Writing-wise, I did miss one day of the 100 words a day goal because I wasn’t feeling well, but I wrote 200 the next day and have been back on track since, although my focus has currently shifted from Song and Shadow to Wild Worker. I’m sure it will shift back soon enough, but meanwhile I really need an outline for Wild Worker since it has to mesh with an already started second book in the… trilogy? series? And having just looked at the other book (to try to figure out what season it is) I’m thinking there’s going to be a lot of fixing needed.
One response to “Another Rainy Monday”
Right there with you. I was working on Stealing Myself From Shadows. I still am.
And then I got a message from a reader for my Shiki fanfic, More Than a Jinrou. From Ukraine.
They wrote about how much they enjoyed the story, they’d read all the parts I’d posted on Archive of Our Own again.
I may not be able to stop the war or do much to help, but I can write. I can write something which makes someone in troubled times forget their troubles.
Talk about incentive! :)
Good luck in getting immersed in story, letting it wash some of the gloom away. (hugs) May it distract you and your readers from that gloom. (more hugs)
