Hi Sarah. First of all, this entry was very brave of you to write, and I’m so glad you have decided to “adjust your sails.”
Now, I’d like to suggest something. There is a book that you probably already know of because it seems like whenever I mention it to someone, they already have it, but I just found out about it at the end of June. It’s called “The Artist’s Way,” and there’s an option to buy “The Artist’s Way Morning Pages” along with the book.
I began writing in The Morning Pages” on July 1, and so far I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s only required that you write three pages a day, and it can be anything you feel like saying. If you don’t have anything to say, you can just write something like this: “I have nothing to say, and this is so stupid that I want to stop writing, but I’ll finish the damn three pages.”
Anyway, it’s been helpful to me, so I’m just letting you know about it in case you haven’t, and if you haven’t, maybe look into it?
