It’s Been a Bad Week for Writing

Yeah. It’s been a bad week.

I started the week with high hopes of getting some writing done. I had made a little progress on just about every bit of work I have going on which includes a short story, three short novels and, of course, the dreaded SEQUEL.

So naturally I was counting on that streak continuing and getting stronger but since Monday I have not written one goddamn word. These words that I am typing represent the only thing I have written since this week began.

Naturally it has been demoralizing.

Part of my problem is my growing unease with the Trump administration in America. It’s not even my goddamned country but his obvious insanity and the fact that he controls a bunch of nuclear missiles has led to some sleepless nights. It’s like trying to sleep in a house where you know there is a machete-wielding monkey wandering around. Sure, it’s not your monkey or your machete, but that doesn’t exactly make for a restful night.

So, here I am, my allotted time for writing winding down and all I’ve managed to pen is this aimless and wandering blog post.

Here’s hoping that tomorrow will be better.

I guess that’s the mantra for a lot of people right now.

Stay safe, everyone.
