I got caught in the YouTube trap a little bit this morning, but I managed to get my writing done before all my meetings in the end. In my defence, it wasn’t totally my fault for getting sucked in (I mean, it was, but let’s pretend). TLDR News uploaded a video about the possibility for Welsh independence and then I remembered I had a bunch of videos from this new YouTuber I’ve just started watching (Maddie Dragsbaek, she does a lot of body and sex positive content, channel here if you’re interested) in my Watch Later and then well…

If you’re a YouTube watcher, you know pretty much how things went from there.

I’m glad that I really forced myself to buckle down though, because I’m sitting here writing this at the end of my work day and wow let me tell you, my brain is even more exhausted than normal. I don’t think I could conjure words out of my skull even if I were trying to right now. Though, honestly, I wish that I had a little more in me because I am like 300 words away from winning today!!

Part of me is tempted to just do it, but I think that it’s important to let myself take a break, too. So, you know, that’s what we’re doing.

It’s a nice walk, a bit of Bob’s Burgers, and an apple tart for me tonight, my friends. Here’s to not pushing myself to breaking point.

Let’s be friends on NaNo! Or listen to my project writing playlist!
