It must be getting toward the halfway mark in December.
How do I know?
I’ve hit a wall. A writing wall. It always happens…I fly through NANO and keep going for another 20 or so thousand and then BANG! End of the line, everyone one off, we are taking on no other passengers…thank you for writing the imagination train. This time though, I’ve made a decision…it’s time to push though. It is time to knuckle down and just work through this. Last year’s plot, with its shaky premise wasn’t up to the task, but I think I can pull this one out of the fire.
This weekend is a little busy, with M. coming up to visit Saturday and E.’s birthday party on Sunday but I’m going to dedicate some time to thinking about the story and figuring out where I need to flesh some things out. Unfortunately, I’ve got to get the house in order first…and get D.’s x-mas/b-day gift…and make some dip for D. to take to work on Monday…and work on holiday cards…and the cats need to be vacuumed.
Waaaaaaaait…this sounds suspiciously like I am avoiding writing. Well, if I am or not, this is the time of year when the excuses sound a lot more plausible and actually serve a purpose. I’ll do the least I can get by with and spend the rest of the weekend writing. That’s a promise.
Have a good weekend!
