I haven't been keeping up with my to-do list. I said I wanted to do an outline, a first draft and a decent revision of a WIP in the next 8 weeks. I keep "almost" passing out which exhausts me so I've been sleeping a lot more than normal which hasn't helped. However, after yesterday's episode, I slept so much I ended up being awake for a good few hours after everyone went to bed and got a few chapters done. Hoping to do the same tonight. I'm back on track with the revision, I may even manage to finish it tonight. I haven't looked at the first draft in a while. The outline isn't happening. But one out of three isn't, well, it isn't good but it's better than nothing.
I finally broke my short story block by throwing together some flash fiction. I was only able to truly get stuck into my revisions once I did this. It was such a relief. I wasn't having a full on writer's block but I was definitely having trouble getting started. I sat down with one sentence in mind and forced myself to write a short story. Once I started, that was it, I couldn't stop so moved onto the WIP and got a lot of work done. Very proud of myself. I thought of some new "rules" for my first draft - really liking the world I'm seeing. I even made out my hospital bag list - something I've been avoiding for ages. The only thing I still can't do is come up with some decent baby names but I'm on a productive streak right now so who knows what will happen next. I figure if I keep praising myself I'll stay on track this time. :)
Now if my neighbours would stop having a ridiculous drunk argument outside their door then I might actually get some work done. Nice Stylistics ring tone, sir, but please STFU. Thanking you.
