I finally finished writing my hypnotherapy course work, and put it in the post. It has been difficult because it wasn't academic and analytical writing, or pragmatic goal-driven writing, or rambling for-fun writing - all of which I have some experience of. Instead I was expected to delve into my real feelings and inner resistance and things like that. Phew, it was hard. The people who run the course are clever enough that they can spot when you aren't doing it, and challenge you to delve deeper. I'd get work back to rewrite if it wasn't self-exposing enough. aargh. I hope this last lot doesn't come back.
The other writing I was supposed to be doing in January is on hold. Some people were supposed to be sending me a hand-held device, to write a manual for it, and now there are 'problems in getting it to me' uh-huh. My colleague is meeting with them on the 17th, and things may get moving then, but the whole 'finish before the end of January' thing is (I hope) forgotten. The deadline was going to be difficult even if I'd been able to start before Christmas.
So for the first time in ages I haven't got anything I 'ought to be writing'. And my mind is blank.
