These past three and four weeks I've had an awful time, I am currently in the process of moving and changing jobs and the bureaucracy is killing me. Current update: my new job has received all references, my crb and my occi health check, so just waiting for the powers that be to send me my contract and confirmation! My new house that I have found and fallen in love with the landlord has accepted me as a tenant. Again just waiting for my financial references to come back. All the above plus a bad case of post holiday blues has crippled me. I have not read 1 single blog, book, short story or watched a film, 'it' (which i assume is a bad case of anxiety/ depression) has literally sucked all my life, creativity and motivation out of me. All i have literally done for 3 weeks is eat shit (not quite literally), lay on the sofa and go to work.
But my creative guardian angel must be watching over me because shes has sent me an email which has restored my confidence and creative juices going! The email was from a gentleman who was putting together an Anthology of poems to raise money to save The Odeon building in Bradford. He liked my poem and is publishing it in the Anthology! Even better line from my poem is going to be in the title of the Anthology and if that wasn't exiting enough I've been invited to the preview/launch with the possibility of giving a reading! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has defiantly given me back my confidence and drive and now I am determined to get back on track with my writing.
