(when you read the post title, did the song come into your head? Do your duty with your heart full of song? If so, you know where I have been the past 5 weeks :-)
I apologize for the tardiness of this post.
I feel I am suffering from a bad case of “I only Want to Nap.”
It is mom undergoing surgeries for her cancer and I feel I need to nap for her or I am having the stress now catch up to me. Or it could be that my husband has been gone for many weeks and will not be back until after Thanksgiving or all the other stresses that are involved in our lives.
With all of these “or” situations, I find I am just making excuses to why I am behind in my Nano count.
I found I am not very creative right now and struggling for words during this Nano month.
However, I have made other items a priority that has fallen in the past. I have talked to my mom, my dad and my family daily. This connection is fulfilling my daily smile bank. I have found with a solid connection to my family, the daily stress is not stress but another aspect of the day. It is not a check list item that I ma worrying about.
I have found I am a “head in the sand” person when things get too stressful. It has taken an extreme amount of stress for this to come out.
It is not a productive way to be. It is how I am at this point in my life.
What are you like in extreme stress? How do you continue to find the creative process and enhance your writing?
