Yep. You read that right. After two days in a row of starting work at six in the morning, I need a plan that keeps me motivated to write when I arrive home exhausted, tired, and disinterested in doing anything, except snuggling up under my bed sheets. Of course, some of that may also have to do with the weather. I can acclimate to cold weather if you give me enough time.
I’m sure some of the exhaustion will wear off once I get used to waking up that early. Maybe it’s that some of my bosses don’t exactly give me a lunch break, it’s just “eat when you’re not busy doing other stuff”. I only have one supervisor who will insist on me taking a break if I’m working six hours or more.
The list for what the problem actually is, or what it might be, grows the more I think about what might be causing this. Whatever is causing the exhaustion, I need to find a way to combat it. This sort of lethargy is not going to fly long-term, especially with my aspirations of getting full-time employment.
I write at night. And when I’m feeling burned out from work, or hungry, or like I need to take a shower, the last thing I want to do is write. It’s a strange quirk of mine that I don’t know how to explain. I need to figure out a way to get past this. This is not going to work in the long-term, especially now that I’ve allowed myself to host write-ins at Barnes and Noble as an alternate to the ML led write-in on Tuesday night.
Does anyone else have to make a plan that guarantees writing fits into their daily schedule?
