Remind yourself that you have done things!
I was feeling a bit like I had achieved nothing this year. Written nothing of note. Done nothing. I think it was the prepping for NaNoWriMo that put me in this place, a bit too on the reflective side.
So I did an overdue task – copied and pasted my blog posts into a google doc as a simple backup. (I do have other/proper backups of the website too!)
Then I saw what I had done this year. I’ve written less so far than other years but I really like some things I’ve written. And by “less”, I mean I’ve published just under 20,000 words in blog posts this year. That’s not a small amount.
While my prepping is WAY behind schedule (at the time of originally writing this), I no longer feel like I’ve done nothing this year. Sometimes it’s good to take a few minutes out and remind yourself of how you’ve done so far.
