So I haven't blogged much. Or, if you're following my 500k writing challenge, written much. I could give lots of excuses or even valid reasons why I've been slacking off.
K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stupid)
Mostly I'm demotivated. Unenthusiastic. Dragging. Lazy.
My writing inactivity has gotten so bad that to reach my goal, I need to write an additional 158 words a day, minimum, on top of the regularly scheduled writing, to keep on track/catch up. Not impossible, but definitely climbing in the wrong direction.
I had a spurt of writing today. A little gritty, short-lived. Finished a short story I've been mulling over for awhile at just under 3k. My writing total today (over 2k) actually brought my writing target per day down by 1.8 words. Fantastic! A step in the right (write? HO HO HO, shameless puns!) direction.
It's tentatively titled "Image". Probably will change. It's a bit spooky, about a 3-span generational gap. And a little twist. Based largely off my own childhood recollection of staying with my great-grandmother and being terrified. Hopefully I'll have a nice cover soon, and can release it in my February slot and maintain my 1-a-month-release-goal for this year :)
