Write Up Wednesday: Struggle with Fatigue

I wanted to be able to say that I’ve resumed writing. That was too hopeful. Aside from these blog post I’ve done no writing. I’ve been largely unproductive. My day job leaves me drained. When I get home I lack the energy to bring words to the page. I’m completely at a loss for what to do with this problem (other than to save writing for weekends, which would be an unfortunate reality I’ll need to confront.)

I’ve been reading at least. “The Elements of Expression” has been good a generating inspiration for writing but I’vent the energy to actually do anything. Simple paragraphs are even laborious. It’s rough. It’s life. I’ll figure it out, though. I just need a clear mind to figure out. I don’t have much else to talk about though.

  1. My day job does that too. There’s no way I can write after work; my brain hurts.
    I find it helps to write for an hour before work, but even if I can’t manage that I can usually do a page or two of writing. If I don’t do this, I get discouraged at my lack of progress. Then, by the time the weekend comes, I’ve lost faith in my ability to put words on the page.

    Good luck!

  2. It’s easy to want to direct what is left of your energy into attempting to write top quality material and top quality material only but just the thought of that expectation can be too overwhelming. Whether it’s Christmas day or early in the morning on a Wednesday- write something. It could be a page, a paragraph or even a line. It doesn’t need to be award winning writing but just the process itself I have found makes me more productive, feel more proactive and able to easily sit down at the weekend and begin to write without it feeling like a totally alien concept!
