This may seem minor, but currently I’m suffering from an extreme case of writer’s block. I’m planning to enter into Tuscany Press’ short story contest, and the deadline is only a month away. This may seem like quite a lot of time, but add in time to get it revised, and another contest I’m planning to enter at the same time, and I have literally a week (starting next month) to get the first draft finished.
Meanwhile, I suffer from a mood disorder, wherein things going wrong tend to set off a severe depressive spiral. So while it wouldn’t be an absolute disaster if I didn’t get it done in time, I would feel terrible about it. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to inspire me.
Father, send your Holy Spirit upon him that he may sub-create his story well and swiftly, succeed in the contest and amuse many readers with it! We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
