I struggled to get even a single word out today. Until I stopped trying to write the thing I “had” to get done and listened to my body, that is. It wasn’t that my head and heart wasn’t in it, they were just elsewhere. Once I let them flow to where they wanted to go, everything went better.
Lesson learned: deadlines might be important, but sometimes you’ve got to write what’s ready to come, not what you think you should.
