TAKING TIME OFF
Taking time off from writing. I’m nearly at the end of my brief respite, and it’s cost me. I should have finished THE GOODALL MUTINY by now. Aiming for the end of April, now, and honestly, it will probably be the end of May.
I realize I do a lot better when I write every single day, but sometimes I just don’t want to and I just don’t want to make myself do it. Welcome to the real world.
This isn’t writer’s block. I’ve got the ideas and the desire to write. I just decided to catch up on a lot of things I shuttle to one side in the ordinary scheme of things (like emails and the blog and website), and to read and watch TV.
I’ve just finished two months taking Dean Wesley Smith’s workshops on writing and the business of writing, and it was very hard working on those and writing at the same time. I’ve got a few more notes to input and a book to read, then I’m completely finished here (except for practice and review and practice and more practice).
Knowing that I’m the type of person who likes starting-off points, I’ll probably get back to writing Monday. Or maybe Sunday if I want to be a stickler about it.
In the meantime, I want to show off some of my favorite covers.
WHAT I’VE READ THIS WEEK: Blowback by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. Dragon’s Bait by Vivian Vande Velde. A Murder of Clones by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
