Day 17 - The dark side of writing

Posted by Alyssa Drake on 28 August, 2021 at 2:45

I debating posting Thursday's blog because this is the first time since I've started recording my progress that I hit the dark side.

There's a meme that's been floating around for a while that uses Rapunzel to depict the mental stages of an author during the writing progress. It usually makes me chuckle, but this time it feel a little too real. Instead of celebrating by reaching the halfway point of the realignment edit, I was overcome by a thickening melancholy that caused me to shut off my laptop.

This concept, historical blending paranormal, is something I truly enjoy, but I ended the night thinking I just wasn't doing my characters or the story justice. When that happens, I stop working, because the inner criticizing voice drowns out the muse. So, I wrapped birthday presents instead.
