I was in a pretty crappy mood after the stuff I mentioned in yesterday's post. As much as I tried not to let things at work put me in a funk, I have to admit it still got to me. The good news, though, is that I think I worked through it.
And, believe it or not, I have my writing to thank for it.
I’ve read a lot of people say how writing helps them stay sane. It’s the same for me too, I guess. Well... Alcohol helps too, but I can’t ignore the contributing writing makes to the effort.
Oddly enough, it wasn’t yesterday's rant that did it. Sure, it helped me to get it out of my system, but I was still stuck in a gloomy, broody mood. It helped, but it wasn’t really what did the job. It was my post on Sprocket Ink today that managed to pull me out of my funk.
Have you ever come across something so ludicrous that you couldn't help but laugh. That's what happened when I took another look at my source material for that post last night (of course, the alcohol may have had something to do with that too). What I chose to write about was silly enough, but - I don't know why - when the wheels started turning in my head about how I was going to write it, it was like I couldn't care less about everything that happened yesterday and I could not stop laughing.
On a side note, we're almost out of liquor.
So, yeah, I think I'm back to my old self again and, by the way, I'm sure you noticed the subtle hints I dropped about having another post up at Sprocket today. Go check it out for yourselves. Just click here, on my official Sprocket Ink badge over the the right or - for the post, plus some bonus features - go to the "Me & Sprocet Ink" tab on the top of this page.
Today's post made me happy again. Who knows? Maybe it'll do the same for you.
