I’ve had an idea in my head for a while now for a short story which has a connection to a WIP and today I took the bull by the horns and started work on it. I know I’m still working on the Avoiding The Game rewrite so this was something I’ll be working on around that.
As I said though, I just started work on it. I was queuing in Subway and the opening scene just popped into my head and I managed to get a couple of hundred words down then, and a couple of hundred between stuff this evening. It was freeing just being able to run with the story and not having any pressure on me to hit a home run with a first draft.
It was fun again, and that is something that has been missing from my writing recently. I’m enjoying AVG but it’s a story I know quite well, and although I know how this one will end its still a journey of discovery and it’s exciting me a lot. I’m really itching to get stuck into it but I’ve still got AVG to get done, so I may use this short story as a sort of reward for getting a minimum word count done on AVG.
I’ve started writing this short story on my phone, which gives me a lot of freedom as to when and where I can add words. I need to get into the habit of taking advantage of the fact I’m carrying a computer around in my pocket.
Just a quick post tonight, I’m tired and I’d like to get an early start on the day tomorrow.
Have fun, everyone 🙂
