It’s not being in the right state of mind.
Your stomach is unsettled.
Your arms ache, and you’re slightly light-headed.
It’s past noon, but you still haven’t woken up quite yet.
You feel a pulsating pain in your lower back, which causes you to let out a yawn.
The coffee isn’t helping.
You keep missing the eye of the needle with the string. So, you spend all day trying to string a sentence together.
But, that sentence doesn’t fit with the one before it.
Before you know it, you’ve constructed a quilt from patches.
You lay down and pull the quilt over you, vowing to start writing tomorrow.
You just need to sleep now. Just five more minutes. Five more.
