I'm *very* motivated to write. I want to write for fun (fanfiction), for fun and posterity (original fiction), or for knowledge (a professional piece that can cross over as semi-academic to use as a writing sample for an application to go back to uni for a phd). What I lack is focus.
Focus is hard for me anyway because my mind is constantly swirling through a million ideas at once - then add fibromyalgia, which at the best of times can make your thinking a little foggy - then add extreme stress - then add paranoia because of finding out that 2 people in town certainly hate me enough to go out of their way to hurt me, and so if there are 2 there must be more, right? - then add being in the middle of testing to figure out why I get nauseous every time I eat - then add getting used to a new medication that has a known side effect of fatigue and confusion... and where was I again? Oh, yeah. Focus.
