Day 16

The words trickled in yesterday. A sentence here, a sentence there. I wound up with less than 400 at the end of the day, without the justification of having gotten a lot done. I didn’t even make it to yoga. I did, however, resist eating an incredibly delicious-looking cream puff that filled my house with sweet scents through the afternoon. C was making them for a special occasion dinner and they looked–and smelled–so good. But I feel as if I’ve been paying for the foods I ate on Wednesday for three days of sluggishness, high anxiety, achy joints and general malaise, and I wasn’t willing to start that cycle over again.

Interestingly, today (day 4), I took the dog for a really long walk, had great book thoughts while I was doing so, made my bed, straightened the living room, put my shoes away and started writing a blog post instead of browsing the internet for an hour or two… alas, the joints still hurt, but supposedly a food reaction lasts three days and apparently it’s now over. I enjoyed the French fries, but they weren’t worth it. But at least I’m not starting over for the sake of a cream puff. (They did look impressively good, though.)

Today’s goal: to write words. Maybe to start the scene with the fun new character I was imagining on my walk. I hope they turn out as snappy as I imagined them.

I hope your Sunday goes well!

    • What works for me (sometimes) is to open the file and just stare at it and wait, until it becomes uncomfortable and then even longer. Eventually words start to float up to the surface of my mind. It’s hard to do, though! (Also, sorry I missed all these comments. I don’t know why I didn’t see the notifications as you posted them.)
