We went to see Crazy Rich Asians, and then had dinner at The Rowan after. Can I just say, the food at The Rowan was spectacular. 10/10 would go again. Highly recommended.
The movie was adorable, the company was fantastic, and I've already raved about the food.
It was a great day.
Today is slightly less so. There was some bad news first thing this morning that has me feeling down.
And it's muggy as hell out there. I'm not a fan.
But that's life isn't it? There are good days and there are bad days. Some days are just fine. What matters is how you manage each day. Sometimes, it's a breeze, and you end the day with a full stomach and a smile. Other times, it's all you can do to survive. Your stomach is empty, and there are tears in your eyes when they close. Some days, there are panic attacks. Other days are spent making hopeful plans. Some days are darkness. Other days are sunshine and laughter.
That's just life.
When it comes to writing, there will be days when writing is easy, and days when it's like pulling teeth - painful and largely unproductive. The usual writing advice is to just write. No matter what.
The real advice is write when you can.
You are not a failure if you cannot write a single word on any particular day. You're just having a bad day. Those are allowed. If you skip a day of writing, or end your day too exhausted to write, that doesn't mean you are not a writer.
You are still a writer.
You're just a writer having a bad day.
So don't feel badly, or like you've failed, if you've written not a stitch. It's a bad day.
Good days are a-coming. Hold on for those.
And now I have to go and write. Hopefully it'll be another good writing day, even if I'm feeling a bit down this morning.
