When I know a week is going to be really stressful ,I go against natural survival instinct. Instead of paring back my workload, I try to be more prolific as far as my writing goes.
So far I've written five poems. Three were published on my blog. One was a draft of Stone Soup Croutons poem that I'm sitting on for now. One I'm probably keeping private indefinitely.
Given that it's on a month where I'm not taking part in a poem-a-day challenge, that's not bad.
I'm shooting for one more. Maybe more. Maybe you'll see the results here soon, maybe not.
