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…
