I did not realize how much anxiety and pain this election was causing me. How much had it been distracting me? Lots. The last few days, I’ve been grateful to not write, but sat there vegging out to Guild Wars 2 or working. (And let me tell you the survey of almost 100% of truckers who hated Hillary and loved or begrudgingly wanted Trump was a constant bombardment.) I could not focus or concentrate on my NaNoWriMo project or even think of putting up posts.
But now it’s done. Hillary has been defeated, and I can breath a sigh of relief that my nightmare will not be visited upon this nation or the world. I have kept my politics mostly out of here because I know I do not share a popular view in the literary world. So, this is all I am going to say about the election other than to point out why I’ve been lagging in my posts and creative output. It was taking a lot of my attention and fortitude to survive this and all the other stuff bombarding me. I will also keep my schadenfreude elsewhere for the sake of those not interested in politics but want to just enjoy fantasy and writing travels… and travails. 😉
NOW…. Back to regularly scheduled insanity.
