I don’t have writer’s block – two weeks is nothing for me – but that pretty much nails down what it feels like in my brain right now. All the voices in my head have gone uncharacteristically quiet, and that’s not as good as it sounds. Which means you’ll notice a distinct lack of writing on this week’s list. Both reading and writing have suffered a steep drop-off, lately. I don’t know how I feel about that.
Part of me is irritated and feels like – based on old patterns – I should be hammering myself to stay up and “make up” those hours, but the rest of me isn’t terribly bothered. I’m hoping that this is a result of getting off Wellbutrin SR and transitioning to only Lexapro full-time, and once the medication reaches peak in my system (which I’m estimating is 4-6 weeks) I’ll be back into the swing of things. Until then, it’s a lot of cat quality time and food documentaries on Netflix.
I also did a little something different with my checklist this week, rather than focus on the stuff I wanted to get done, I focused on the things I did. I like this method because everything on here is an achievement, rather than having a mix of successes and misses. I like how it zooms in on positive achievements, where I would normally fixate on where I was less than perfect. I don’t know that I’ll use it every week, but I enjoyed the experience.
I hope y’all are having a more creatively fruitful month!
