|I'm a little behind|
I am not sure how much time I am going to have to put in to this work, but I still don't want to give up. I can see the benefits from doing the journaling, so I can only think that doing all of the work will be even better. Right now, though, I am dealing with having to make an unplanned, semi-emergency trip back home. My mother has been back in the hospital for two weeks and they are getting ready to move her to a nursing home. I don't know if that will be permanent. Lots of decisions to be made, lots of research into facilities, lots of stress and anxiety and trying to figure out what I will do with all of her things if the nursing home has to be permanent... Right now I am getting overwhelmed very easily and can't find it in my head space to add in anything, even work like TAW that I want to be doing.
I have been doing some work on my novel planning, and I think part of the reason that has come back to me is because of the daily pages. They help me see what's happening inside my head and address it, and I think that has opened my story to me again. I'm really happy about that because I love the world I created for this story, and there's a comfort to being back there.
That's it for now. Maybe next check-in I'll have a bit of progress to report.
