Don’t breathe too deep, don’t think all day
I haven’t written much this week. I don’t really have an excuse: I just haven’t had much to say. Or, at least, not much that I felt like writing about- I’m sure if I’d actually sat down and tried to put words on paper I would have come up with something. 

I have been writing: I managed to complete a chapter of the novel I’m working on. It was an elusive bit of writing that required a lot of massaging. I’m still not sure that I’ve quite gotten it in tune, but I think that all the salient plot points have made it onto the page- at least enough so that I can move on without feeling like I’m missing anything necessary for the character arcs. 

I haven’t been in a particularly introspective frame of mind lately. My mood has continued to be erratic, by which I mean that I keep experiencing sudden drops in my energy and motivation and sudden spikes in my anger and annoyance. I suspect that I have some unresolved issues that I’ve been bottling up. It’s not that I’m trying to pretend that they don’t exist, but rather that I haven’t quite figured out how to deal with them constructively yet and I’m trying to buy myself time until I can gather my wits. So a lot of my attention goes sliding across the surface of my mind without sinking in too deep. Hopefully the weekend will bring some relief.
