Today has been one of those days where writing… it just wasn’t going to happen. You sit down to the computer and either children keep bothering you, or you just can’t seem to find words, but it doesn’t really matter. Writing isn’t going to happen. (And yet, even on a bad day I wrote 400 words. It’s not all bad, right?)
So I did a bunch of the little things that needed to be done. Covers, formatting, uploading, and the “stuff” that goes along with writing. Productive, even if I didn’t finish another chapter in my novel. There’s always tomorrow, right?
I also sent “Minotaur” out to my mailing list today. A good scene, I think, that struck a little closer to home with me than usual.
All right, I’m going to go crawl into bed with my kindle now… Good night all!
I understand about disturbances. I find that after everyone in the family goes to bed, I have my most productive time, just because the only one that stops me is me. I understand how that might not be possible in your case. But the key is that you try. If nothing else, just jot some notes on those hectic days when you know your production will be low. Brainstorming is never a bad thing.
True. I actually enjoy brainstorming.
That’s a rare thing! I enjoy that very much as well. It’s almost like daydreaming.
