Well, I did it. I had two Swap Bot packets that had to go out today and I took them to the post office this morning. The next ones I’ve signed up for don’t have to be mailed until next Monday, so I have time to clean up my mess from this last batch (one thing about writing, it’s not nearly as messy as other crafts!) and to take my time working on the next ones (an artist trading card and a pair of bookmarks).
And maybe even be able to focus on writing.
Actual writing, as in putting words on paper (or in a Word doc). My mind is always on writing, and it’s been working overtime these last few days. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been focusing on the story that it needs to focus on. In fact, it’s not even thinking about any of the more pressing writing projects in my life.
Instead, it’s been fixated on when a character should first put in an appearance in Sea Witch (working title only), arguing over having her show up first in the hospital or the court room.
Not very productive.
But it’s Monday, and one of the writing groups I’m on Face Book always has a post on Monday to set your goal for the week. So mine is to finish that blasted scene I’m trying to add to Onyx Sun.
Next week it’s going to be a follow up scene to this one – one that will segue into another already written extra scene that I need to work into the story.
Weekly goal. No word count, just… write the scene. Finish it. Even if it’s just bare bones, finish it. It can be fleshed out later.
Oh, and make an ATC.
