Deja Vu All Over Again

Here we are, another Monday.

It was a pretty uneventful weekend. Wasn’t on the computer much, which of course means I didn’t get much writing done. But I don’t feel guilty about it. I think sometimes it’s good to take a bit of a break . . . Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. ;-)

I did think about writing a lot. I’ve got another space/adventure/romance that’s been intruding on my thoughts. The last thing I need right now is to start something new, but I don’t know that I really have a choice in the matter.

The last time this happened was right before NaNo. A story popped into my head and pushed everything else out. For two weeks I couldn’t even think about anything else, let alone write about anything else. No reading, no writing, just going over the story in my head and refining it. Of course the good news there was that once I started writing there was no hesitation at all and I even finished NaNo ahead of schedule.

We’ll have to see how it goes with this story. So far it hasn’t shown the same intensity as the NaNo one, so I might be able to just do an outline for it and leave it simmering on the back burner.

You might have noticed that my Progress indicator is under construction again. Yeah, I had issues with it. I’m working on a new goals/progress widget but probably won’t have anything up until later today.

June is going to be a busy month for me, what with the daughter getting married at the beginning of July. I’m going to have to go over that chapter in my text book about time management and put it to good use. I’ve got a lot of sewing and other stuff to get done, I’ve got school taking a chunk of time out of my day, and I want to set reasonable writing goals. I’ll probably have to allot a specific amount of time to writing, rather than wordage goals. And then of course I’ll have to learn to make the most out of my allotted time.

Is it just my imagination or am I sounding more like a wannabe writer than a writer these days?

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

I had high hopes for writing more on my drafts this weekend - and didn't get nearly as much done as I'd hoped. Sounds like you're going to have a crazy month ahead with school & the wedding and all - gotta cut yourself a little slack. :-)

You should so go for it. I've had inklings like this and it seems to have paid off.

And where might I get your new story about which you are so excited?
