I've felt this before and I'll feel it again, but that doesn't make my current state of mind any less annoying. Sometimes the 'good' that comes our way can be overwhelming. The projects pile up and suddenly you feel sorry for yourself because you got exactly what you wanted. I spent most of my weekend working on freelance projects and I'm happy to say, I got one of them done a whopping six days ahead of schedule. For the past few hours though, I've been staring at a jumbled mess of words going in all the wrong directions. So, with a looming deadline, as crazy as it sounds, I had to stop to be able to start. The flow will come and the words will fall into place. I think these are the moments Amy Poehler was referencing in, 'Yes Please' when she talked about the best outcome you can hope for with writing is that at some point you'll hate what you wrote a little less. It's true, writing can be a creepily self-loathing process. It's as if you have a herd of mean middle school girls in your head, ready to cut you down about every sentence you type. I guess maybe I should change the title of this post to Monday Evening Meltdown, but that seems a little dramatic. The truth is, I know my own process and as soon as I face my uncertainty head on, I can move on and finally...START.
