I am admittedly suffering from a bout of mostly writing-related anxiety.It's a vicious cycle of being anxious over not producing anything, which makes me unable to produce, and then continue to beat myself up about not writing. After coming off from the high of finally finishing Joey, I'm kind of lost. Joey was easy to finish because I had the overall picture of where it was going and how I wanted it to end. All my other plot bunnies and WIPs are currently in a much more nebulous state. But the overall anxiety level is so bad that I am resisting even working on the simplest of drabbles (and playing hours of Dragon Quest IX instead).

I'm learning toward working on Looking Back in Retrospective. But honestly? As it stands, the flimsy premise needs some overhaul, fine tuning, and a lot less lazy narrative and storytelling device. And I haven't even begun to tackle the huge pile of research I need to do to justify writing an ancient Egyptian setting to myself. I also don't have a concrete enough plan/timeline and am just wasting myself away being anxious about not having one.

I'm tempted to go work on a follow-up to Life Eternal instead. I am continually surprised to find people still periodically read/discover it.

I need to snap out of it.
