I have a ton of things keeping me from writing, but I'm trying to knock them down one at a time.

Money is a big one which leads to stress which undermines creativity and causes health issues.

This has also been a crazy year because my oldest son started college last year and moved away from home permanently...umm...two days ago? Then my youngest is still living at home, but will be starting college locally next year, so we have to get him set and pay all sorts of other fees there (more money and stress).

But a lot of those big things are one-offs that have swallowed my whole attention. I'm looking for a fulltime job and working freelance with several clients at the same time. However, those would be manageable without the family stress, so I have high hopes for getting my patterns back in place.

The hardest thing holding me back is actually indecision. I have too many pieces that I love and are in a state where they need to be edited and sent out. But whenever I go to work on one, I can't decide which and that's that. By the time I get anywhere, my writing time is over. I think I'm going to be reduced to the random generator .
