Okay, I’ll admit it. I’ve gotten into a habit of allowing myself to get sucked into the news during what is usually my writing time.
I don’t like it. I don’t like that I’ve allowed myself to get off track.
And then I looked at my current rewrite. My circus story, Flying Blind, has had many lives already. I thought I was just fixing a few things here and there. Then I looked at the climax. You know how people can rewrite the beginning of a story a million times? Seems I’ve neglected the ending so far in this rewrite.
It was tough writing in the days running up to Christmas. We had school until December 22nd, but I did get in some great writing on the 26th and 27th – on the end and not the beginning.
What about today? I’m on a little vacay with the family. Won’t really get back to writing until Sunday. I’m back to setting a timer. It’s a guaranteed way to get on track.
How are you managing your writing in the new year?
