Do you smell that?
That is the smell of uninhibited creativity.
What? Smell’s like burning plastic…
Today, I am getting back into the groove. Though, if the truth be told, I haven’t really fallen off of the writing wagon. I’ve just had no time to blog about my progress. You know how life can be sometimes – it runs you ragged and sucks you dry. A few months ago, I started outlining the rewrite of my WIP Retribution. It went badly at first, as I knew it would. By nature, I am not an organized writer. A personality flaw to add to my growing list. However, I figured out what worked best for me, and the awkward process seemed to straighten itself out. I feel pretty good about what I’ve got to work with, and hopefully it will be enough to get me past the 30,000 word mark – the point at which I threw in the towel last time.
For weeks, I have resisted the urge to write. Premature writing is distracting and tends to land me in a big old mess of trouble. Well, the time has come.
Let the writing begin!
To keep with the theme of my self-shaming Sunday update, which will make a return this week, I am going to give myself a goal to meet.
This week’s goal:
Complete draft of opening scene – i.e. introduce the world to Anna and blow up the Piazza Navona.
…and away we go.
