I’m meant to be working on Camp Nanowrimo right now, but I can’t. I gave myself a deadline for this WIP, and I just can’t do it right now. You know what though? That’s OK. This is just a reminder that you don’t need to push yourself, or rush yourself, or make yourself feel bad. Even as I watch my friends crush their goals and feel bad that I’m not doing more /better, I have to remember- I’m doing the best I can right now. I hope you all are too.

 

Happy writing,

Emma-Kate xoxo

  1. This is a great reminder. I hope whatever it is that is making it difficult for you to fully go for your story goals settles out. It’s definitely ok to take a break when you absolutely can’t continue.

    1. Thank you for the message Tiana. I think a lot of us (with and without mental illness like myself) tend to push past our limits because we don’t feel /allowed/ to take a break/take our time. I think a day or two break for me to recharge is definitely needed. I hope your nano journey is going amazingly ❤

      1. I took a two day break because I had a mental breakdown and needed space from (well everything). I’m dedicated to take a deep breath and just do my best for tomorrow. I’m not really very far behind, but I’m still in a state of hurt that I’m climbing out of so I definitely understand where a post like this comes from.

      3. Honestly same here! We are all going through our own battles. Mine just happened to hit me hard at a bad time (even when there is no good time) it’s all about how we learn to bounce back. Even and especially when it’s hard to do so.

      4. AMEN to that! I’m lucky that I was in a good place (I actually took a blogging hiatus because I was doing DBT) and I’m thankful I have coping skills I didn’t in the past
