Brass Tacks #2

Ooo-boy! Has it really only been one week? It seems likes it’s been eons since my last post.

That may be getting a little dramatic, but it’s been a week of change like I haven’t had in a long time. Starting a new job feels like I’m back at school again, making mistakes, and feeling dumb. Maybe not dumb, but definitely like a beginner. But, it shouldn’t take me long to get the hang of it. Like writing, I have to trust the process.

Oh – and all of this is in public. I’ve never been good with that. I’ve really had to shove my introverted side out of the way.

Also, I don’t know about any of you, but when I have something new, exciting, or worrying coming up, I can’t sleep the night before. So, I started out this week tired on top of everything else. It got better by the end of the week and I’ve caught up this weekend, I think. Next week shouldn’t be so bad. Thank God.

It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, that I’ve gotten little done on my writing this week, despite my drastically scaled-back goals.

My writing goals last week and what I accomplished:

1. Write new scenes 36B and 37. Yeah, not really. I worked on scene 36B, but didn’t finish and wasn’t particularly inspired by what I did write.  

2. Write the next Brass Tacks post. Done. Hey, hey, I did finish something!

Goals for the coming week:

1. Keep working on scenes 36B and 37.

2. Write the next Brass Tacks post.

Until next week…

    Remember, give yourself time to settle into the new routine. I think you did well to catch up on sleep, work every day, and get part of scene 36B done! 🙂

    Keep going, you will settle into the new routine eventually and wonder why you ever worried about not getting any writing done. 🙂
