derek is putting the finishing touches on his story this month and i still sit with nothing completed. my goal, however, is to finish off my story tonight or tomorrow. will it be good? i honestly have no idea. will it be written in less than four total hours of work? but of course!
derek and i were talking on the phone before and he made a somewhat valid point – either i can stay true to what we originally intended for this project and bang the story out as best as i could this month, or i could probably end up not giving next months story as much time as i should because i’m working on two stories. i’ve decided to make every attempt to finish it off this month, even though there is a very real probability i will be writing leaning over a baby asleep on my lap while i, myself, am falling asleep.
before pausing to write this update and grab a drink, i’ve put about 800 words together in a semi-coherent fashion since i sat down about 30 minutes ago. i decided to get rid of what i had and start over, as is my usual process, so i can try to get myself into some sort of a flow. i’m sure what i am typing now is more or less what i had before, but with my lack of focus lately, i really am just hoping my brain clicks into overdrive and just lets everything flow out of my fingers and onto the screen.
also, i guess i’m hoping it isn’t awful.
