I didn't think I would get through with my goal for today. So far, I've kept my word count goal. You see, there was a family crisis last night, and I got caught up in it. I kept as much of my cool through it.
I prayed. I researched online...
and I cried.
My blood pressure went up. Perhaps I was suffering a panic attack. I started with the body aches. I was so keyed up that I couldn't sleep. I ended up staring at the ceiling.
Really, I thought I was gonna suffer a nervous breakdown...but I didn't. I lived into another day, with my brain intact to bring you more of my nuttiness. Well, I think I'm sane!
So what does a writer do during a crisis?
Well, if you are diabolical like me, you'd start plotting the next scenes to your story. You guessed it, I used the material of the crisis for my story. I know. I'm cruel like that!
Beware: I might use your drama for my story!
Maybe I should blame it on my hormones, but I had to channel all my wild emotions into something positive.
Seriously, though, I thank God that I have an outlet for the emotional issues that hit me. Without writing, I would totally have lost it by today. I think it's true, what is meant for bad, God turns around for the positive. Also, what doesn't knock you down only makes you stronger...and I think I'll leave it alone on that note. ;)
