Because of a combination of being sick and life events, I’ve been away from my writing for almost a week. It feels like forever. What I did manage to accomplish:
1) Decided I’m definitely sticking to Novel A, “Cooking story”, and leaving Novel B, “Bubble story”, for a later time. I’ll go crazy if I try to do too much.
2) Watched a T.V. show that gave me an idea for an early part of my story.
3) Worried about getting behind on my goal of finishing the first draft by the end of June.
4) Re-read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (because even when I’m sick, I read). Admired the writing once again.
Today I’m going to write something on my novel, no matter how small, no matter if I end up ripping it out later because it doesn't work. Building some momentum makes a huge difference for me, because once the writing is flowing, more great ideas follow.
