On the one hand, reaching a nadir means you’ve fallen a long way from what you were aiming for.
On the other hand, it’s the lowest possible point; so from here, things start to improve.
This week was certainly a low point; I only managed 500 words, on a new story idea. I’ve used an online-forum format, which I suspect might help with characterisation; time will tell.
I also sent The French Revolution back to the library, with a hundred pages still to go. I’d been pushing myself to get it finished before the time ran out, which was probably a mistake.
But with my work schedule getting back to normal, and a new book to dive into, I might even keep up to all my goals this week. :-)
Good luck and happy writing!
