So, here we are…another Sunday update.
I have two words that will explain everything: Potty Training.
I can almost hear all of the writers in this community collectively saying, “Oooooooh.”
Yep. Potty training. So needless to say I haven’t gotten to complete my daily minimum word count this week. A few days during the week I was hit with insomnia. I took that time to get some writing done. I added about 1000 words to my current WIP during those sleepless nights. Something is better than nothing.
This week, I also started applying what I’ve learned so far from Story Engineering to my current works. And I’ve come up with another story idea that I’m trying to hold at bay because I really don’t need another ‘in progress” without at least a “complete.” I am fighting with myself on this because another part of me is saying something new would be better for utilizing the tools I acquire from Story Engineering. (The battle continues….)
In the few moments of down time I have had, I decided to get back into a novel because I haven’t read for sheer enjoyment in a long while and I miss it. So, I’ve dusted off my hardcover copy of Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult and relaxed with a nice cup of Lady Grey. It’s the break I need, if only for a few moments while the baby naps.
Once she’s up again, its off to the races again!
