Dear writers,
I haven't been on Google for a while but I find myself in a difficult situation and needing some advice. What's more, we writers are an allusive lot and it's been hard for me to find people who will understand the issues I'm facing!
Anyway, due to lots of different reasons (which are much to long and depressing for this post) I am having a lot of problems with emotional exhaustion and worry at the moment. Mix this with a healthy dose of anxiety (which is improving slightly with treatment) and I am having a tough time concentrating on bringing myself to write anything- not to mention writing what I want/ need to.
It seems that every time that I try, all of my problems jump to the forefront of my mind and start screaming, "Look at me, look at me!" which make it difficult for me to 'drift off' with my writing and 'visualise' what is happening with my characters.
I know that with writing sometimes you have to just plough on but when you can't even form any words because you're dreading other issues (which have no immediate resolution) what can I do?
Sorry for a rather disheartening post- especially so soon after Christmas but any advice or words of wisdom that could be offered would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

The final part of #SummerNightCircus is now up. So excited yet sad that this series is over! xx

Feel the spontaneous need to spread some positivity. To anyone who reads this: go ahead and high five yourself, you're an amazing human being and you deserve it!
