In the wake of yesterday’s post (in which I mentioned that Summer is usually a great time of writing for me) I have hit a minor wall. I can’t say exactly what it is, but I think I know the why. I have set myself a deadline for finishing this draft. WHY OH WHY DID I DO THAT? I knew better.
To try and break down the wall, I contacted a writer friend of mine, just to chat and see how he is doing and hopefully kick myself into gear. It sort of worked. I’ve been typing up some handwritten pages (how all my drafts start) and even realized that there are significant scenes (chapters….) missing from the middle of this tale. I have on a post-it what I will need to add. This will probably push back my goal date, but that is OKAY WITH ME. I’m not even going to set myself a new date, because look what it did to me. 😦
Oh well. Tomorrow is a new day and today wasn’t a total loss.
Hang in there!
