In recent months I've been looking for more holistic and natural ways to help my anxiety and depression. I highly believe in the power of colors and the idea of surrounding yourself with good vibes. A friend recently recommended that I might try having more yellow in my life. I bought yellow swags for my windows and guess what... every time I look at them, they make me smile. The sunny shade just makes my heart happy. I even feel my heart jump in my chest at the sight.
Of course, nothing has ever seemed to work at a 100% success rate. I still have my down days and yesterday was definitely one of them. Days like yesterday, I cannot create. My muse hides and I find myself simply wanting to sleep. Of course, I don't sleep. I try to push myself so that I keep to the schedule I've set for myself. Unfortunately, all it accomplishes is to create a very frustrated author with low self-esteem who feels like they can't accomplish anything.
Today is a better day -- even if the bathroom vanity door did fall off and hit me in the face. I'm okay and hoping I won't wake up tomorrow with hideous bruising. So far, so good on that front.
I wouldn't say I've accomplished all that much, but I did some swag work and made dinner. So that's a win. My plan now is to hunker down and get some words down. It's necessary. My muse is struggling to rise and the voices of my characters are screaming for their chances to speak. Yes, many authors are a bit off their rockers and we do have other people living in our heads.

I'm always pretending that I'm sitting across from somebody. I'm telling them a story, and I don't want them to get up until it's finished.
