I'm attempting to get more organized with my blog posts, but of course I've tried that about a million times before, so I'm not holding my breath. But my plan right now is: writing tips/observations/discussions/whatever on Monday, a more personal (but probably still writing related) post on Wednesday, and then fun things on Friday (book reviews, blog hops, more pictures of cupackes, etc.). This isn't set in stone and obviously any monthly or date specific blog hops (IWSG, for example) will still happen.
But anyway, as the title says, I WROTE SOMETHING. It's not nearly as exciting as it sounds, but progress is progress, right? I still have not even looked at Uneven Lines since the nightmare that was Pitch Wars, but I still think about it all the time. It's just whenever I think about actually working on it that I start cringing.
Last night I was just thinking about the book, which wasn't anything new, really. But as I was picturing the scene, words started popping into my head. Actual words! Words I hadn't thought of before. This hasn't happened in months! Since I was actually trying to fall asleep while I was brainstorming, I grabbed my phone and typed in the few lines of dialogue that I had imagined. It wasn't perfect, but it was something.
I'm hoping that this is a good sign. Maybe at some point today I'll be able to write even more words, and then more words tomorrow! I may be getting ahead of myself, but for the first time in a while I'm actually starting to feel excited about my writing again. Hopefully it sticks.
