So tonight I was supposed to write but I realised that I cant start on the story I was going to as I need to put a little thought into it and do a little research, so I bunked off. Do I feel bad skiving two nights in a row? Yes, a little but do what with the amount of hours I’m at the day job, Tracie and I had a full day on Sunday and a lack of sleep at the start of the week I’m not feeling too bad.
Tomorrow night I will begin looking at a story I wrote a couple of years ago which I’ve never felt completely happy with. I’ve always felt it was a story with no home but I’m going to make a few minor tweaks and turn it into a cyberpunk story. When I say cyberpunk I mean I’m going to add a lot of the technology elements into it as I think it will suit the story really well. I’ve not looked at this story for well over a year now so I’m quite looking forward to seeing how it looks with fresh eyes. I’m also interested to see what I make of it as I’ve learnt a lot about the craft of writing in that time. In particular I’m keen to see what I make of the characters.
As for the rest of the evening I’m going to setting in and watch a movie.
