"So, what have you done, Jessi?" Not much. I did a game review, and two massive posts about a fifteen-year-old RPG. I've written about 3k words for MMPR02, and taken half a dozen pictures for DMCD01.
Why has my progress been so slow these past two weeks? The election really shook me; I was practically useless for the rest of last week. My SAD has not been kind, but the election basically countered the warm spell that we've been experiencing here in the central valley.
I've also had a shit time trying to find more awesome j/k-pop! ...Which is a hysterical, and now my favorite, way to shorten Japanese and Korean popular music.
To quote History's most robbed loser: "...[L]et us not grow weary, let us not lose heart, for there are more seasons to come. And there is more work to do." If you suffer SAD as I do, consider two shorter work sessions rather than one long one--the break of lunch or a movie, or a motorcycle drive around town, can help re-energize us. Get as much light as you can, and force yourself to sit in your writing space with your music and your tea--the effort that you made to create your writing space in the spring and summer is now rewarded by greater productivity in the winter.
