Welp, I made it 4 days into last week’s 6-day writing spree before the kiddo got sick. While 4,000 new words is not 6,000 new words, it’s better than zero new words, so I’ll take it! I naturally worry about losing momentum on my projects when setbacks like this happen. For the entire pandemic, the setback has almost always been the temporary loss of childcare due to either our own kid being sick (the worst, because then we’re also sleep-deprived/miserable) or a COVID exposure within our daycare community (still tough due to juggling work and kid, and then there’s the added anxiety of COVID). I’m sure all the other parents out there can relate!
"I can't make the weather" is a great creative mantra. Thank you, Shayne!
