if I were me

One might draw a peak/valley chart for the non-writing times, too.

Day 0, day I submitted the revision: numb relief. "Thank god, some time off."

Day 1 after sumbmitting the revision: euphoria. "I don't have to write nothing. This sweet freedom means I can, in fact, write anything I want!"

Day 2: "I uhm. I guess I really didn't want to write very much. It's okay. You took the weekend off, remember?"

Day 3: "I no longer know how to write. Like a cruel incubus, that last edit letter emptied me of desire and ability."

....

Can't wait to see how I feel tomorrow.
