For a little while now I’ve fallen behind on things, and writing plays a bit role in this, which means I’m behind on the timeline I’ve set myself for completing my current story, other projects are pushed farther back, and I end up feeling like things are spinning out of control.
Of course this does nothing to help, since the more I panic about not getting on top of things, the less I do. So as a result I’ve pulled back on blogging too frequently, I’ve taken some time away from writing, and focused on enjoying life. The real life outside of writing. But more recently, I’ve started feeling like my old self. I’m reading more, and going to get back into writing again, even if it’s small steps, it’s better than nothing.
How do you deal with life when it becomes too overwhelming?
