Mondays can be hard to face.
Especially since I don’t tend to write on the weekends, it’s difficult to get back into the groove. I can get detached from the story from not being ‘in it’ like I am Monday through Friday. I know momentum will come, if I can just get myself going. If I can open up the word processor and the document and just start writing…oh, but finding that energy.
It’s not really any different than any other job I’ve ever held. Going in after a day or two off is hard. We drag ourselves out of bed and into the uniform, pout over the morning coffee and grumble at the first person who greets us with a friendly hello…”Don’t they know it’s Monday for crying out loud!”
The same holds true (Or always did for me). By the time mid-morning break rolls around, the flow is back and so is the chipper attitude and friendly smile.
For writers (or this writer) part of that Monday malaise can come in the form of doom and gloom. “Why are you working so hard for something that you have such a small chance at succeeding at?” Well, the video below has the perfect answer to that demon.
