Just A Thought . . .

I’ve been plagued for so long, struggling to write, when it used to come to me so easily–back when I wrote fan fiction. But just lately, over the last 4 to 6 weeks, I feel the urgency again. I feel the power on the edges of my vision, and it thrills me down to my soul.

I may be wrong, but I have an inkling that my discipline is back.

NaNoWriMo 2015 Update

NaNoWriMo2015 update: Day 2, total words 2822. Yeah, not so impressive, BUT I have struggled painfully through the less-than-fun job of setting up the political background for my novel, so I’m STOKED to have it behind me. It will go much more quickly (I think – I HOPE) once I get to the romance.

Best wishes to the other participants.

My (belated) Resolutions

I always have a let-down after Christmas, don’t you? The let down this year has been rough, but it’s February, and I’m coming out the other side now.

So I’ve been dilly-dallying with my writing, and I’m tired of having no direction. It’s time for me to take back control of my writing life and to keep hold of it. No one is going to care as much about my writing as I do, and it’s time I accept that fact.

I am a writer. I have hundreds of thousands of words written, and lately, I’ve been going nowhere. It has damaged me in many ways, but mainly, in a loss of self discipline.

It has to stop.

And I have to make some new (old) rules for myself.

1. I am in control of my writing.

2. I will write what I want to write.

3. I will stop withholding kindness from myself for unspecified transgressions. It’s old behavior, and I won’t go back to it.

4. I will reclaim the joy that my gift brings to me.

5. Fuck the rest.

Wish me well.

So Excited

… to have new pages back from my copy editing team. I’ll tell you right now, this is so much harder than writing fan fiction, and it should be, right? But it’s a learning experience, and I’m so impatient for some instant gratification.

 

Instant gratification just takes too long.

 

I’ve got pages (hurray!) to work on this weekend, but I believe I also have to begin thinking about what I want my next project to be. Professional novelists begin a new project long before the old one is polished and ready to print. It’s time for me to begin thinking that way.

 

But – New Edits! So Excited!
