Ha.

I may sound like a broken record but here goes anyway.

I’ve been feeling a little down recently.  

I bet if I bothered to check, that phrase would be the most common throughout my blogging.  For those of you who don’t know, I’ve suffered from depression for a fair while now. For the most part, I’m coping far better. but the problem is…depression doesn’t go away just because you’ve figured out all the coping mechanisms. It comes back in insidious ways. Right now my depression is taking the form of lethargy. Everything is just that bit harder to do. Particularly anything involving social pressure.

Today I managed to revise a couple of scenes before succumbing to exhaustion.

The magic is back

I now have a couple of months in which to edit my first 10,000 words. Reading back over my previous revisions I realised it was a little dull. The information is there, laid out in a concise effective manner. The world has magical aspects but the wonder of that magic has been lost. Today I spent time re-writing the first paragraph. I went to it with fresh eyes and no pressure.

I absolutely love what I’ve written.
