Getting Back Into It
I’m a bit behind this week. I spent last Friday through Monday pursuing my other passion; my dogs. That meant three days of intensive one-on-one training, and two days of travel. During which time I wrote just about bupkiss. Several hundred words at the most. And I’d been on such a good string of 2k days.
It also put me behind on blog posts which is why you’re seeing one on a Thursday. If I were smart, or extremely organized, I’d do a month’s worth of posts ahead of time and schedule them for release. I’m going to have to do that as we head into spring and summer because that’s my busy time.
So, here I am, playing catch-up.
First, ROW80 update (which was due yesterday): um . . . well . . . read the first paragraph again. That about sums it up.
Second: I received another Blog Award. Yes, I know, many bloggers cringe at receiving one. They’re like the infernal chain letter (so, if I tag you, feel free to ignore) I enjoy Blog Award’s, and here’s why ~ validation. It means someone actually read and enjoyed my blog. So many thanks to Jennifer for tossing me:The rules state I need to pass this to 6 blogs I enjoy and list 10 things about myself. That will have to wait until this weekend when I have a bit more time. But I promise, I will get back to it.
Third: I need to get my rhythm back. The first draft of BD&L2 is giving me fits. That means there is something about it I don’t like. My subconscious and my characters are fighting me. But, I need to remind myself it’s a first draft and the purpose of a first draft is just getting the darn story down on paper. It’s the bare bones. I can rearrange them later if my skeleton looks a bit off.
I do want to give a quick shout-out to my fellow IMPs at The IMPire. If you’ve got some time, pay a visit to our growing space. Be sure to read the history of the IMPs while you’re there.
