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.
