We all experience them in our lives. I have found that it is very difficult for me to write when I’m down. My mind is concerned and preoccupied with other things. I can write, but not very well; certainly nothing worth reading. It’s better for me to wait. I’m not saying things have to be perfect, but there’s no reason to write just to be writing. I’ll have to change or delete it anyway. I take advantage of the times I’m “up” and stay away from the keyboard when I’m down.
