17th December 2020

Good evening, folks!

I have spent most of this afternoon reading through Lovers and making notes. I’ve got some good ideas jotted down but will spend time building it before I start the new draft. I don’t want to rush it, I’ve got a history of diving in head first and blowing myself out of steam too soon. So I’ll hold off, let the ideas run around my brain, and see what comes from it.

What helps in holding off is I have Penal Earth and Black Blood (not wild about that title) in progress. Penal Earth is in the endgame and I think I’ll be wrapping it up soon. I’m not willing to say in the next day or so, but maybe by the end of the year.

Black Blood is a little further out, and I’m slightly tempted to leave that till the next year and let it breath a little before I get it finished.

I’m getting better at keeping my focus on one thing.

I did write this afternoon as well, only 715 words but I knew I wanted to get some words down today. Hopefully it’ll lead me into a decent day’s work tomorrow.

The end of this year I’m planning on being very productive. I’ll be working a fair bit of the Christmas period, which doesn’t bother me but I’ll also have some time to get words wrangled.

Right folks, I’m off to chill out for the rest of the evening. Day off tomorrow, so aiming for a productive one.

Rock on, folks!

  1. Sounds like you’re making progress. Yesterday I FINALLY finished my narrative poem. (OMGosh, that was hard. I’m no poet!) And then I wrote a short horror story for practice, just to see if I could come up with a weird fiction horror story. Today I’ve got a study session, but no writing. (Studying the craft, learning technique, stuff like that.)

    I hope you have a wonderfully enjoyable and productive writing day tomorrow!
