It has been another funny sort of day for writing and I am feeling a bit Jekyll and Hyde or bi-polar about the task this week. Seems like every day I am swinging from enthusiasm to desperation and back again.
Earlier I was feeling sort of apathetic about the words that were coming out. I decided to go looking for an old piece, maybe a short story, that I could post here … just *something* to share … again with that keep the momentum going idea. I didn’t find a piece I was happy enough with to pull out. I did find a fun quote, and a couple of other barely started projects that I’d like to go back to.
“Oh, I want to work on *that* story!” – me
“Which one?” – my lovely husband inquires
I laugh, because it doesn’t really matter, and I tell him the true answer, “Not the one I am working on!”
So, a break, dinner, a conversation with the kids … and back at it, renewed.
It could turn into another late night, but I need to find some kind of a reasonable schedule and establish some sustainability. So, I am calling it quits tonight with words still in my head, to flow tomorrow. 4200 words is a daily output I can live with. 🙂 So is an 11:00 bedtime.
