So it’s been a rough week for me. I haven’t been sleeping well, so I’ve been alternately zonked and exhausted. Last night, I was a bit sicky so I had no motivation to do anything (I did write 400 words on Ever Touched though!) and I was stuck on Covenant and…yeah. Bad week. Nevertheless, I did manage some things, so that’s a win in my book!
Ever Touched – I’m up to 44k now, heading quickly toward 50k. I was a bit stuck on something but I think I’m over that. Things are picking up, and getting more interesting by the day. In March, I have copyediting to do for TDP, so my progress may be a bit less, but I’m hoping to continue to do something on it regardless.
Covenant/8 minutes a day – Hit and miss for this. I tried, I really did, but some days just getting my words in for Ever Touched was a struggle (and some days I did not make my quota). I know writing for 8 minutes doesn’t sound like it needs a lot of energy, but where I’m at in the story requires lots of forethought. And I think handling two WIPs in one day while exhausted is just too much. But luckily, I think my sleep is getting back to normal so I think I can do more of that this week. I hope.
Planner – Filled in the first 5 days and then nothing. I actually forgot about it until yesterday, oops! Will try to get this week entirely filled in.
Physical activity – Not much, although today I did 15 minutes.
Darkroom – Been putting this off due to lack of energy. It just hasn’t been there. But I will get to this, damn it!
Water – Every day except one, and 2 glasses on one day!
This fatigue/not sleeping well thing sucks. Hopefully I get back on track this week!

I hope you get back on track as well and that you find resolution to your fatigue. It is no fun dealing with physical ailments as well as the normal writer’s ailments such as writer’s block. Hang in there
Boy can I relate to this. I have been fighting adrenal fatigue for two years now, and am just now starting to recover. And it’s mental as well as physical. It’s hard to get much of anything done when you’re that wiped out. Here’s hoping your fatigue and insomnia are short-lived, and you’re feeling better soon!
Thanks, Jennette! It is tough for sure.
I’m always nocturnal during the full moon, and often the new moon, too. On the plus side, I’m more creative then, too.
Maybe the moon’s cycles affect your other health issues?
It seems like you did very well, while slogging sleeplessly along…
Thanks, Shan! That’s a very good point. I am actually a night person, so maybe there’s something to that. I am very happy with what I did, though.
