Writing this week: 3rd October 2015

This week I… continued to putter along, getting a little done every day, but not a lot. There’s been some good movement and other works on Notorious Sorcerer, which is a better taker-upper of time and energy than some things. But mostly, it’s been a pretty strenuous napping schedule getting in the way. As I get into my last couple weeks of pregnancy, I’m being a lot more lenient with myself, even though I know that the next few months are probably going to be a desert of productivity. That’s just the way things go.

Next week I’m looking to… continue slow and steady. I’ve given up on the idea of having a complete first draft by the time I pop – see above – but having as much as I can will be important. I’m leaving myself lots of notes as I go, to try and avoid loose threads and sure-I’ll-remember-this-idea moments that will have evaporated by the time I can come back to the writing. There’s nothing more frustrating than knowing you had a great idea but having no idea what it was. Even if you come up with something else great, you’ll always wonder if the other one was better.

Australian, wordy, beery, geeky. Should I mention that I talk to myself? (No, don't. It'll just make people nervous.)

One thought on “Writing this week: 3rd October 2015”

  1. I think the notes idea is a brilliant one, especially once your baby is out – you’ll have a lot of middle-of-the-night time for fantastic ideas, once you get the hang of the no-sleep part.

    I hope you do, at any rate! My sole memory of those early days is fishing in World of Warcraft in the middle of the night, because that was easy to do with a baby sleeping on my chest.
