What I’m Reading
What I’m WritingI’m finishing up an eight page outline for my new WIP, and my commitment issues are kicking in. I’m coming up with new ideas and tons of reasons not to write this manuscript. This is why I normally write short stories. Starting a novel seems like SUCH a huge commitment (even though I’ve written novel-length manuscripts before), and I’m procrastinating hardcore. I really love the short story I’m expanding on in this novel, and one of my fears is that I’m going to wind up disliking it by the time I’m done. I also have a tendency to leave projects unfinished, which I really don’t want to do. I need to set up a writing schedule. Any tips?
What Inspires Me Right NowClearly I’m searching for inspiration to start this novel, so if anyone has some…send it my way! What motivates you to write, even when it’s difficult?
What Else I’ve Been Up ToWorking 8-5 Monday through Thursday. Haircut (I got bangs!). Rewatching all six seasons of LOST. Being reunited with my Gilmore Girls obsession.
What's up with you this Wednesday?
