If shelters aren't built and sweeps continue to happen, then overall housing affordability has to change. This NIMBY stuff is going too far. People need a place to sleep. You can't just keep throwing your hands up and telling them to figure it out when there are little-to-no resources available.

Writing can be mentally exhausting, so it is important to take breaks. This will help you stay focused and avoid burnout. Take short breaks every hour or so and use this time to stretch, walk around, or do something else that relaxes you.
