I realised I haven’t talked about my writing lately, so thought an update was in order. For the last month or so I haven’t had alot of time to write, and when I did get the time, I didn’t seem to be able to write anything that I was happy with. So nothing really has gotten finished, although I have added greatly to my plot bunny file.
Hopefully this will all change next month. One of my many goals for July is to be better at time management, and knowing my limits so that when I do need to do something I’m not exhausted by it. So no more staying up till 2 in the morning because “Just one more chapter”, or trying to get too much done in one day that I feel out of sorts for the next few days.
Hopefully this will include dedicated writing time outside of sprints, and a sucessful Camp Nano. I completed a 30k word CampNano in April, so I’m going to try for a full Nano this camp, so 50,000. Like before, my goal is to catch up with drabble prompts I owe, as well as finish some ongoing fanfics that should have been finished eons ago. Starting in August, I plan on doing some serious editing and planning so I can finish my Peresphone original novel and perhaps start its sequel, Isis.
Right now I’m off to a nightly sprint I do with a few friends and trying to write a couple drabble prompts within the 30 minutes. Its an interesting challenge for those of you who like writing. Just set aside a set amount of time (some people like to start with 10 minutes and work their way up) and try to just write (no editing, no distractions) for that amount of time. Its not always possible, especially when you live with other people who need your attention for some reason or another, or like right now when you have a cat who wonders why you aren’t paying attention to them. (Max is staring at me sorrowfully as he bemoans the lack of attention).
