Down Off the Ledge

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
It means so much to me (and my mental health)
having this writing community.

Yesterday I shared my panic and angst
and kind writer friends took time to talk me down from the ledge.
Sharing wise truths along the way.
Reminders that I wasn’t delusional.
That I could continue my project in good faith.

I want you to know I just finished my 1000 words for the day
and it was a great session.
I wasn’t nervous or angsty or anything like that.
I was calm.
Deliberate.
Confident that the initial story spark and its ensuing emotions
were still there for me to mine.

Thank you, friends.
Have a wonderful laughter-filled weekend!

  1. oh, my dear Tracy. You’d think with angst in the title, the need would have registered. I kind of missed you on the cliff and I’m sorry sorry sorry. Glad you had other friends to offer a hand.
    So glad about your 1000 words today! And calm.
    feeling too close to cliff myself, but that’s poor excuse. I, too, am so so grateful for friends here, for you, and glad you’re safe now. and never delusional!

    • Please, Jeannine. No worries. My goodness, you’re in a precarious place right now and you have to know I don’t take roll and see who’s there with me when I start angsting in public. My point was I love the ebb and flow of this community and how we step up for each other as we can.
      I know you’re in my corner, always. And I’m in yours.

    • Cliffhanger. Hmm, I didn’t think of it that way. I had Conflict and Tension in that post. Wow!
      Delusions and reality go hand in hand. At least in my mind….
