Current word count:
26,662 words. Not bad, but not great. Need to get my booty into gear, or as Jim Butcher would say, I need some BIC (butt in chair) time.
WIP issues this week:
Dealing with the emotions from finding out my CP is battling cancer. I have come to think of her as a close friend, one that I can share my writing, my feelings, and talk to her on almost a daily basis. It makes me sad because good people should not have bad things like this happen to them. It also made me realize that this could happen to me as well. Also, I feel like such an ass because I have been sending her my work, which involves cancer, and had no idea what she was going through. I’m sure that just made her feel great *sobs in corner*
This week I am also dealing with the fact that I am very impatient. Though I have gotten better over the past few years, I still find myself getting huffy over stupid stuff that I should just let slide. For instance, I checked my email compulsively all of yesterday waiting to hear back from a contest I entered. Still nothing. I just need to put my butt into gear and focus on my writing.
What I learnt this week in writing:
I’m impatient. At least I realize it, and am going to work on it. Also, I learned that I can’t compare myself to others. Just because one person can hammer out 10,000 words in a day doesn’t mean I should. I mean, I wish I could, but fully realize I am too much of a perfectionist to not edit as I go.
What distracted me this week while writing:
The norm. Kid, puppy waking up kid, checking email compulsively, being on twitter WAY too much.
