Writing While Tired

For reasons I may talk about in another post someday, although I think I’ve talked about them here before, this time of year is not one where I sleep well. As a general rule I don’t sleep well and this time of the year is worse but words still need to be written. I didn’t write yesterday but I’ve written 1405 words in an hour this evening. Okay, those words are pretty bad but I still got them down and when it comes to the edit I can fix it then.

I think it was important that I did write tonight. I am getting more and more convinced there is a connection between my writing output and my mood. When I’m writing I’m happier, much happier. Life seems to make a lot more sense when I am writing than when I’m not, and even though I don’t feel great at the moment that’s because I’m tired. WE had a really good day yesterday and although today didn’t go quite to plan it’s not been a bad day. A lot of resting was done, which I think myself and my parents needed.

Tomorrow I’m back to work, and a little bit of normality until New Years Eve. We’re planning to demolish a shed on Sunday and put up the new henhouse. That I’m quite looking forward too as it’s something I’ve not really done before and it’ll be a lot of fun working with my Dad. I’ll still have plenty of time to get in my 1000 words a day minimum over the next couple of days and once the New Year is here then the real work will begin. I’m on course to hit my 30,000 words by the end of the month so coming into 2015 on target will be a great start to the year.

Right, I’ve rambled enough for one night. I’m fairly sure I’ve not made a lot of sense, but made lots of typos. I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas πŸ™‚
