Check-in time - support the other participants here. To summarise, roughly 2k of a draft written, just not the right WIP.
It's been hard to take off the mammy hat lately. My OH keeps going, why aren't you writing? I don't know why, but when something major (to me) happens, I don't want to do anything. Ever again. The longer I let it go on for, the harder it is to snap out of it. Himself knows this so didn't let me away with it. Weirdo. :P
After much persuading/bribing/tormenting, I got to work. On something new. Oops. Over the weekend, I've written an outline and about 2k of a novellette idea I had a while back - the idea didn't work before but some random research inspired me to take a second look then as I was outlining, I came up with something better. It's fun and new and experimental and different to everything else I've done - always a plus.
Haven't touched Taunt but I've been working out the atmosphere a little more. You know, in my head. I'm getting back to that during the week, particularly on the organisational crap that I keep putting off. I'm scared I'm going to mess it up completely. Sequels scare the shit out of me. I've, like, four "first in a series/trilogy" written, maybe four more "almost" written. Can't handle book 2. It's ridiculous.
Anyway, we're back in the hospital tomorrow to get my daughter's bandages changed - I can hear the hysterics already - so I'm not expecting next check-in to be full of achievement but I'm feeling good for Sunday's check-in. Wish me luck! Also, the baby's bottom teeth cut through this week, explains the sudden sleepless nights. :D
