I’ve had a couple of days where I needed to take somewhat of a step back from writing a little bit. With everything that has been going on if my life at the moment I just needed to take a couple of days to re-focus. I had a moment on Thursday where I actually considered quitting writing. I haven’t felt like that in quite some time.
I am stuck with Penal Earth at the moment, I’ve made the same mistake I make time and time again where I haven’t gotten it planned out properly. That tends to lead me into holes I can’t get out of, so I’m putting the breaks on and will try and figure out where I want the story to go from here. I have got other stories I want to write soon so I’m going to work on some outlining and see how I get along with that.
With The Space Watch, Owen and I had a chapter-by-chapter outline which I didn’t get along with. So, what I’m planning on trying now is to get a one or two page outline done and have a few bullet points of important details I want to include in the story.
Speaking of The Space Watch. I’ve finished red-penning the draft this evening and will start making the alterations in the next few days. I’m not sure I’ll do anything on it tomorrow as I’m going to work on tidying up a couple of short stories that I want to add some spice too. I want to get into some outlining as well.
That’s it for now. I’m totally wiped out and my bed is calling.
