Back on Form

I had a hellishly long hospital appointment yesterday and then a migraine afterwards that lasted until this afternoon but all is well with the baby so that's sort of put a shine on everything.  I'm still sick but I'm feeling a lot less whiney about it and even got some writing done.  Being forced to take a bit of a break actually did me the world of good.  I've managed to let go of my WIP for longer than a day (trust me, 'tis good news because I am soooooo close to it I'm blind to it) and I read a blog post on plotting today that made things a little clearer in my mind.  I can change some parts of the plot without necessarily changing the story and that's something which has been bothering me - sometimes you have to hear it from someone else.

But I'm putting it to the side for now until I've figured out exactly where I want to go with it and also until I've gotten a bit of space from it.  I wrote a silly short story yesterday and today I started on a paranormal novella.  All for fun and a good way to ease back into things.  The baby is due in six weeks, I've lots to do to prepare (such as figuring out some names we both agree on) and I think working on something new writing wise will help keep my mind off the scary stuff like labour pain.  Things seem to be going great all of a sudden and I am ready to make the most of it.  I've only written 1,000 words today but I'm feeling really inspired and keen to work so I'm off to write some more.  Here's hoping it lasts.  :)


  1. Claire - Just wanted to say I hope you're feeling better and I'm glad you were able to get some writing done. Those six weeks are going to fly by fast!


Feel free to have your say.
