Chicken soup is good for the soul, right?
I have to admit it, I’ve finally hit that typical Week Two Slump that was always coming. I made it through until three days ago. And then I opened my laptop, went to write words, and just couldn’t.
Week Two has arrived with a belated whammy, complete with some sort of cold-thing. I knew that was coming, I have seen people have missing for days at work. Some members of my dear family and extended family have been almost bed-ridden with it. And I had thought I would somehow magically avoid it because writing is somehow magic…
On the up side, I have written nearly 10k words. Considering the week before I was nearly contemplating what to do with my life without writing, it’s a pretty significant step forward.
I have two ‘finished’ short stories, and two more in the works. For someone who struggles to get a story down in less than 75k, that’s an impressive start too.
And a big, huge, amazing thank you to everyone who has followed this blog, because there are 50 of you! And I am so excited! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So I have had a massive, wonderful week, and I am going to spend the next week trying to fight off this cold. And, of course, writing words.
Maybe I can have a lead character whose name doesn’t start with ‘S’…
This week, I am going to go through the not small supply of chicken soup in the freezer, and keep chipping away at the words.
