Really short one today. I’m so tired it’s unreal.
I thought having Easter off might help, but nope.
So, I’m going to share a couple of things.
Really tired means really easy to miss opportunities
One of the major things I’d like to highlight is that if you’re really tired, it’s easy to miss stuff. Opportunities, mistakes, ideas. Writing is the most important thing for me right now, along with job-seeking. I love writing, but I need somewhere to work too – it keeps me fresh and bright, and not bone weary.
Ideas that you miss are often the worst though – I feel nothing worse than the nagging sensation I thought of something brilliant that I just didn’t follow through.
Never mind though.
Three ways to (temporarily) shake tiredness
There’s three clever ways to shake tiredness – you can ask others for help, so that you can focus on what you really need to, you can choose to take time off to recharge, or you can ignore it. Ignoring it can be difficult though, but it can work in the short term.
Me? I’m taking a bit of time off tonight, and will come back blazing tomorrow 😉
D Kai Wilson- Viola is a prolific and often intensely fun writer. Her favorite genres are Sci-Fi, where her Darkness series is set, Fantasy, where she writes up actual play from RPGs she never got to run, urban fantasy, mostly inspired by her bad idea bear (aka her partner, Tempus, and mental health advocacy, as she’s got a raft of diagnoses, none of them particularly pleasant, but none that tend to hold her down for long either
When not writing, and still *thinking* about writing often enough to get caught out, Kai can be found training with her beloved at the Ludosport Academy they belong to, hanging out with family and friends gaming, or enjoying exploring parts of the world they’ve got access to at the time.
A nature and animal lover, Kai is a writer because she has to, because she loves it, and because it’s fun. She is the mother of two cats, two adults and lives in the Cotswolds, UK, with her beloved.
