But I don't feel like writing!

There are definitely days when you just don't feel like writing. Today is one of those days. I think it's mostly  a combination of a fuggy head thanks to my Fibromyalgia and a busy day yesterday which again, the fibro objects to but I just haven't been able to sit down and write. Except not doing it was making me feel bad. I wanted to do it! I felt guilty at not doing it! I really did want to write something.

So I pulled up the novel, and have just spent part of the afternoon adding words to that. I say 'adding words' because I'm not sure that when I look at it again that it will be any good. But I can fix that. I can edit words that are on the page. I can't edit what isn't there.

My brain is still fuddled, my dry eye is still sore and annoying the heck out of me, but at least I've writen at least 1000 words today and that's pretty good on a day I didn't feel like writing.


  1. Absolutely !
    Like you say if you can do 1000 words on a not wanting to write day, you will be amazing on a wanting to write day !
    Trying to write when you are not feeling well is awful - I know that - but don't force it. Nothing to feel guilty about either. Write when you feel like writing and that will be your best stuff anyway.
    Best wishes

  2. 1000 words is good ANY day!
