Often times I feel a bit like an amorphous blob when I think about all the things they have accomplished. It makes things worse that they are flourishing in the writing world. Every time I see something they have achieved it reminds of what I have not. I’m back in high school comparing GCSE results.

I am wildly proud of them. But the chasm between us looms larger when I’m going through a rough patch. It’s an effort to get out of bed in the morning, then to force any words onto a page… well it’s difficult.

Today I Focused on… getting up, taking a shower, eating, getting dressed, not tumbling into a pit of self-loathing.
