Enough Already! ~ ROW80 Update
I did a little retrospection this morning. Basically my ROW80 updates have been variations on the ‘whine-snivel-sniff-woe is me-my characters are killing me-this story is dragging’ theme. I don’t even want to read them, so I’m fairly certain those of you who do are getting a bit tired of hearing it. Since I’ve increased my word count by over 38k since this round began, I really have nothing to bitch about. Time for a little tough love.
Yeah, like that. And this…
I’m just way too hard on myself sometimes. Lots of internal pressure. As Garek says in Emergence, “I honestly don’t know how you put up with being you.”
Trust me, it’s not as easy as it looks.
Anyhow, I’ve decided, along with slapping myself, I’m going to work on finding much more interesting things to blog about. Seriously. Things that may appeal to the general masses, as it were. Don’t ask what those things are. I have absolutely no freaking idea at the moment. If anyone does, please feel free to leave a suggestion in the comments.
Other than that…
It’s Sunday. Packer game, grocery shopping *groan*, laundry… maybe some words, checking in with other ROW80ers… the usual.
I have to write a review of Reading Glasses: Stories Through an Unpredictable Lens which is an excellent collection of short stories. And I’ll probably sneak in some more reading because I started Rise of Orion by the incomparable Rachel O’Laughlin last night and yeah. Did. Not. Want. To. Put. It. Down.
