Lost in a Story
I started this semester with the best of intentions to be completely and utterly ahead of the curve, completing assignments well ahead of their due dates. After changing up my morning routine in a very basic way, I lost all motivation and spiralled for approximately two weeks, not being able to look at my screen, my email, my assignments at all.
After floundering through, I eventually put myself on a different sleep schedule, rediscovered that I still have the ability to write sentences, and then played triage for a few days of catchup.
Dan and I have been going back and forth the last few days going through edits for my piece, and, though I had my doubts about how I would feel putting my name on a rushed and subpar story, I feel it's in a better spot, makes sense. Whether it's mediocre or not, it's going in the magazine.
