Weekly word count: 3630
Chapters edited: 17 of 46
A look back at the last month shows that I've been struggling to make my word count, so I've decided to step it up and join my fellow ORWAn, @LBoota. We'll be tweeting each other every day with our word counts and hopefully it encourages us both to get our fingers on the keyboard.
It's been a real up and down week for me. The highlight was doing an escape room with some of the ORWA gals. (Spoiler: we didn't make it out but we had a lot of fun and I think we made some good progress and showed innovative thinking.)
The low point was discovering that someone I've known and who has been working with my family for over a decade had committed suicide. It was a professional relationship so there wasn't a strong emotional attachment, but as someone who has struggled with depression for most of my life, it still ended up hitting me hard. Here is a link for crisis centres in Canada. If you're hurting, please reach out for help before making any big decisions.
And if you're not hurting, please take a moment each day to be kind. A moment of kindness can be like a spark in a dark room. It doesn't take much to chase the shadows away, even if its only for a second. You never know when that moment can make all the difference.
