mood - owie: buffypurple12

(no subject)

It doesn't matter how good the day before was, I guess Mondays are just bound to suck.

On top of that, my cold symptoms are sneaking back. I've been fighting stuffiness and coughing the past couple days again.

All of it has just drained me. I read an 80k galley today in my efforts not to move (plus I got another galley yesterday that's due in a week, so I wanted to get this one off my plate), but I didn't get any writing done like I'd hoped. I miss writing. I miss even more feeling like I'm halfway decent at it. My confidence has just been in tatters recently, and I can't figure out how to help it. I started watching the Neil Gaiman masterclass, and while it's been enjoyable and inspiring, I feel so damn inadequate because of it. My imposter syndrome is flying high these days, it would seem.
