⭐️ Day 27 Prompt: Where Are You? Word Count Check In or Status Update ⭐️

It’s Day 27 of #AuthorAugust22, a prompt series by @mariahankenman!

At the time of me writing out today’s prompt post, I’m laying down on the couch, barely sleeping, agitated, and having a lack of focus. Today marks 5 years since my brother lost his battle with #mentalhealth. Today, I’ll be visiting his grave. So, please forgive me if today’s content is a bit sparse.

I only have a status update, I suppose.

Last night, I began #writing out the first draft of a children’s book WIP for critique groups. It feels nice knowing it’s almost at the finish line. But I’m incredibly anxious about it as well.

Lately, I feel as though I’m making some headway in my journey as an #author, but of course, there’s still so far to go.

I’ve always considered writing a children’s book with a mental health focus as “therapy” but I think it only makes me feel worse about it when I give it a try each time. There’s some irony in there but I don’t feel like unpacking that right now.

Anyways, I hope you all have a good weekend.

Love you. Be good. Be safe.
