Control Issues

I haven’t really been feeling myself lately and it’s started to affect my writing but I suppose the truth is that it’s only been able to affect my writing because I have subconsciously allowed it too.  I got a good lecture from Ms. L. today about how I can not allow myself to get so depressed over the things that I can’t control that it takes away my power to do what it is I can control.  So I have to somehow drag myself out of this funk that I seem to be in and pour my energy into doing what I know I’m supposed to be doing right now.  I can’t control the things that are continuing to go wrong in my life but my writing career is something that I can control (at least the aspects of it that don’t involve investing money right now) so I have to direct my focus on that.  I know what I need to do now I just have to buckle down and do it.

  1. I know you can do it!

  2. I agree. I have let a couple of rejections and comments from a reviewer get me down and my writing is suffering. Thanks for the inspiration to regroup.

  3. Hi, Maybe it is just a natural cycle for the year, our relationship to the creatures that hibernate is being affirmed? I too, have had to really struggle to remain positive and to put out the required effort each day. So when I do write, it is either mopey or falsely sweet and cheery. But I keep trying. I think being warm and having money in the bank would help but you don’t get everything 🙂

    Hope you feel better soon,
