Ummmm… So… Really Enthusiastic…   Leave a comment

I’m almost ashamed to reread my last post. So I was super enthusiastic about two pieces of writing in May. 5 months ago. I thought that I would get oodles of writing done during the holidays but instead I chose to sit on my ass. True story. What I really need to remember is that I sit on my ass to write so really there is no excuse for writing nothing for so long. In recent weeks a news item has reminded me of my YA novel and I just wish that I’d not wasted the last 5 months because, right now, I have the best chance of selling my story. Unfortunately life is full of ifs and buts. Oh well.

On a serious note I have started my writing again, despite the fact that I may have missed the boat when it comes to my YA novel. I am only about 7,000 words in so there is not much chance of completing it this year (unless I give up my job, which sounds wonderful in theory, however the mortgage company may disagree!). Perhaps I should focus on my younger readers story, which I might be able to knock together a first draft before 2014. Decisions like this actually put me off writing. I almost wish that I didn’t have so many unfinished stories swirling around in my head. Becasue seriously I’ve just thought of a Chick Lit story. AS I’M WRITING THIS POST. Seriously I don’t want to stofle my creativity but at the same time I wish that I could finish with one before I move onto the next.

I’m off to write a party scene (Jersey Shore blasting in the background – the things we do for our craft!)…
