I go through cycles of this, so it isn't new. I do know that when it happens, which is almost always around this time of year, I'm tempted to burn my life to the ground. I don't mean suicide, but rather other really poor life choices. I have to keep it in my mind to stay the course and that things will get better.
This blog is about writing and not my emotional state, but I think many writers experience this same thing for many of the same reasons. In order to give this post the justification it needs for appearing on a writing blog, I need to explain all the factors that led me to the point where I could barely pull myself out of bed.
