This weekend has been very busy for us. The summer Special Olympics is underway!
It’s FRIDAY! And this week while I’ve been busy writing, the musicians I’ve discovered were the 2Cellos!
My outline has been coming along slowly. Very slowly. I’ve deleted it and started over multiple times now. Stared at the screen with nothing for hours at a time. About mid week I reached a point where I felt like I had hit a wall and was getting no where.
What have I been up to? Up to no good? Hardly! Too old for much mischief anymore it seems. Or rather, I just don’t have the energy. Did manage to get a few things done this week though!
So last week, I talked about getting some world building done to bring last year’s NaNoWriMo WIP back to life.
In the spirit of my last post, I’ve been poking around at my incomplete draft from last year’s NaNoWriMo and sat down with my Lester’s Dent Hero’s Journey Outline Template along with some world building brainstorming questions to see if I could get myself unstuck with this story.
Sometime not long after NaNoWriMo in 2016, I began to question whether or not there was a place in the world for my blended genre style of work. I didn’t think I had a place to belong and it hurt. I didn’t want to write something else. I still don’t. I want to give voice to the stories and characters that roll around and echo in my head.
This week I offer a playlist filled with the work of Peter Crowley. His music is often symphonic in nature, often featuring fantasy and Celtic elements with an adventurous feel.
I’ve been weepy most of the week, which is weird because Mom says I’ve been so much better since I’ve been back on meds. Not sure how this is better.
I haven’t really talked about it, because… I don’t know. Maybe a part of me wanted to ignore it? I think I may have mentioned it last week, but I’m too lazy to check right now. But he’s on leave from South Korea right now.
