Right, so I didn't manage to use the summer to get a lot of work done, but I did use it to poke my brain, see a therapist, discover that I actually have pretty severe anxiety, and start taking steps towards figuring out strategies to overcome this. Go me!
Also, exposure therapy sucks mightily.
But today I scheduled writing time, made a plan, and actually did what I had set out to do. Words on a page. Not submittable, serious words, but words to clarify thoughts, lay out arguments, and so move towards submittable words. This is progress.
