My writing train went off the rails for the last few weeks due to change in my routine. That’s a cliche. Does this work: my car went off the road? No? Off-roading is seen as an adventure, right?
But I have abandoned the car, walked back to the road and will now walk back as long as I don’t find another ride.
It’s not okay to lose the streak I have worked so hard to maintain. But now that it has happened, all I can do is say it’s okay and learn from the mistake and move on, trying not to repeat it again.
