A Visit from the Black Dog

I haven’t been very active this month at all – on my blog, on social media, or really anywhere outside of my day job.

Things have not been easy lately. Aside from Mr Sage’s illness, and some heavy deadlines at the day job, I’ve also really been struggling with depression. It’s a vicious cycle.

I’m depressed.

So I don’t have the energy or the emotional or mental capacity to work on my projects.

So I don’t meet my goals.

So I feel worse for not meeting my goals.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Some days are better. Not good, exactly, but better. I get some words down. I make progress. But I never quite feel like I’ve done enough.

I don’t know if I’m going to meet all my goals for February. But I’m going to try.

Things to look forward to over the next couple of weeks: reviews of Back to Reality by Mark Stay and Mark Oliver, and Foundling (Tooth and Blade: Part One) by Julian Barr; my AWC Furious Fiction entries for January and February 2019; and, with any luck, a proper update on Number 19.
