Trying to recover

My writing lately has been limited to tweets and FB posts, along with the occasional attempts at a writing sample for job applications. It wasn't working.

I decided to try something new, just to get my brain in gear. I've set my alarm so I will get up at the same time every day, and my plan is to write first-thing each morning. This morning I got through part of a fictional story, something I wanted to write that's been banging around in my head. It's not good, it's not even passable, but it's writing. Tomorrow I hope to finish it, then maybe I'll try to edit it. Or I'll start another story. But the goal is to structure my days again, and get back to "normal". I've been letting the anxiety and nightmares rule me for too long.

I don't know if this will work, but I've got to try. I'm sick of being sick.
