Such incredible, stupid, unmanageable hell.
It was so very hellish that when my flatmate called to find out what was going on, I promptly burst into tears.
It's a work matter, not a writing one (Oh, how I long for the day when writing is my work!) , so I'm not going to go into detail here. Needless to say, it was a terrible, terrible, terrible day.
Obviously, no writing was done. No writing will be done today, either. Or tomorrow. I'm giving myself the rest of the week off writing. Luckily for me, I have a project that will keep me occupied, and while it isn't writing, it is related to my writing future. So I won't feel like I'm totally slacking off.
Right, I'm off to catch up and get to work. Hopefully today will be much better.
Serious consideration or observ[ation].
