This isn’t really a writing update. This is an “I should be writing” update. Or maybe a “well at least I wrote a few blog posts update.
I think I’ll settle on an update on my writing class, since that’s one of two things I’ve made progress on in a week. I’m behind. It’s not as bad as it sounds. I took my time on one lesson, which is a good thing, and now I need to catch up. I have absolute confidence that I will be where I need to be by Friday. That is when a new lesson is released so it seems like a good goal.
I haven’t written any flash fiction in a while and surprisingly that fact bugs me. This coming from the woman who swore up and down that she could never write something short. I was convinced I was terrible at it. Too wordy. Not disciplined enough. Now writing shorts makes me happy. Yay me!
I implied that I haven’t done any writing but that’s not true. I haven’t written any scenes but I have been replotting. When Holly Lisle blew up my story (thankfully), it gave me a lot of work to do and I’m loving every second of it. It’s also part of why I’m behind on her class, but I think she would agree it’s a pretty good excuse.
This replot is not really difficult and the only reason it’s time-consuming is I have so many ideas and sorting through them is…interesting. It almost feels like it did when I first began writing this series. What a lovely feeling!
I’m almost ready to write some new scenes but for now I’m content tweaking old ones and planning.
Minor blog updates: I will probably be late with this month’s book review. Also be prepared to be inundated with pictures of random nature stuff soon.
Sidenote: Watching all six Star Wars movies over a couple of days may or may not have had anything to do with me not writing as much as I should.
