That’s the thing! Half the time, it’s not even the burning-out bit that sucks, because deep down we know it’s only temporary. It’s just like refreshing a page on the internet. Sometimes it’s a pain, sometimes it’s a little slow, but it’s necessary. It’s the the corresponding shame and guilt we feel because of it, that gets to us. Which is silly and normal, just like us, I guess!

Am so so glad it helped though, and I hope you’re having a well-deserved rest before going back out there and smashing it :)

I imagine in a parallel universe I might be a caricaturist or a botanist or somewhere asleep on the moon — but here, I am a writer.
