Yeah, I know I disappeared for a while there. I did get some more writing done even though I didn’t blog about it. So that’s good. However, back in January my asthma flared up something fierce. Naturally I wasn’t feeling well. I’m fine now, but my battle to breathe got me behind on my writing once again. *sigh* My biggest issue seems to be forcing myself to write even if I don’t always feel like it. I go to work when I don’t want to. I go to school when I don’t want to. I need to learn to write even if all I want to do is sleep. lol
I’d hit a wall with Olivia’s story, so I’ve started the opening scene over. When I first started Olivia’s story I started it for NaNoWriMo in 2009. If you know anything about NaNoWriMo then you know it’s a crazy mad rush to get as much written as possible. Not surprising, the original opening to Olivia’s story is also rather rushed. I found that it re-writing that scene is really helping me to unblock a lot and giving me a little more insight into Oliva, her cat Drac, her mother and her relationship to each of them.
My plan is to get back on track this coming Tuesday. Tuesday is a great writing day for me because I don’t have class and I don’t have to work. My day is wide-open until I do my volunteer work in the evening.
So that’s all I have to say for now. See you again on Tuesday. 🙂
