It is May, friends. Already nine days in, and I'm a little disappointed in myself. I had hoped to have my WiP finished by now, but the likelihood of that happening isn't likely, unless by some miracle I can pull off four chapters in the next two weeks. Then I got to thinking. What's my issue? Why am I so hard on myself?
Getting hammered by new responsibilities is a factor. The increasing call of parenthood is another, but then I thought, are these just excuses? Am I bogging myself down? Then it all stemmed back to a picture I found. Believe. Yes! Maybe I was losing faith in my writing abilities. I had to believe in myself again. So I took out a piece of scratch paper and wrote. Just wrote. It didn't matter what. These bumps are a nuisance, sure, but with a changing schedule, I understand my dilemma better. It's time to put writing back up as a priority.
I see we have new followers this week. Excellent! Please feel free to visit their blogs, everyone!
Updates: Chapter 20 is done! I just need to do one last thorough reading before I pass it on to my alpha. As for when chapter 21 will get started and be done? I really can't honestly say. This week isn't likely, even though it should go by fast (it's pretty intense). Maybe in two weeks? That sounds reasonable. That's the plan, then!
Who went to Storymakers this weekend? Who saw the mighty Thor? I spent my weekend ripping out flooring, so please, do fill me in on the fun stuff I missed!
I'm David, and someone should invent 'work jammies.'
