I haven't written on my book (story) today. Not unless you count the 25 words I wrote just a moment ago. Normally this would make me feel nervous or aggravated. I try to write every day. But ya know what, today, I'm not too bothered. I know I'll write again tomorrow. Tuesdays' are weird and busy days for me anyways, and I did accomplish a lot elsewhere. Right now I can't stop smelling my arm because I found a lotion at walmart that smells exactly like fall. but ya, I'm fine with it How hard are you on yourself?

@ScribbledAdNauseum Cool! If you are not tied to a publishing contract and don't have a deadline it's okay if you don't work on it some days. You can take your time.

@lovebuglena Right. Right now I am doing KDP, but I'll be looking into other avenues at a later time. I just like to stretch the writing muscle as it were.

I am trying to like myself more than allowing mean comments to bother me to the point where I am self critical.

Mean comments are hard to get away from, especially when we direct them at ourselves.

Not as bad as I'd used to be. Better actually.

I'm very hard on myself; but now I rarely have anything to do; so it's easy to become lazy. You are right to not let it bother you, especially when you're doing other things.

This morning I am feeling the pressure. I really should go outside and walk, I know it would make me feel better, but I can't seem to get myself out of my own head. I feel like I need to do everything right now.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Have a talk with yourself! Tell yourself it's OK to not do everything RIGHT NOW.
