September went by in a whirlwind and now it’s already the 7TH OF OCTOBER. Seriously WHAT.
I’m sorry I’ve been so silent lately. I’ve been so busy with school that I hardly ever stop to take a breath. I drive over 100 miles every day to get to school, do assignments for condensed 5 week terms and NOW I’m having to actually teach which is horrific for me in itself. Let me tell you- teaching does nooooot come naturally! Kids have judging faces these days!
Buuuuut anyway. It’s bad enough I’m stuck with schoolwork, but my worst nightmare has come before Halloween in the form of-
It’s not so much I don’t know what’s coming. I do, I’ve been planning my stories and know what’s ahead. My problem is actually writing. I feel like I’m just writing the action to get it over with, and none of the emotion is attached. I keep looking back at old writing and taking breaks with other writing, but I still feel myself stumble.
It sucks! Especially when writing is something I want to put effort in, but I’m so mentally exhausted by assignments and teaching everyday that it’s like my brain is running on empty.
So, this is a note to say I’m pushing through I’m more than halfway through the next chapter of Wild Eyes while so many of these plot bunnies for my original stuff are still jumping around in my head. This next chapter will be a small one, so I’m hoping it’ll be out before the end of the month- when my big assignments are due.
All I can say at this point is… wish me luck!
