Crap! I forgot my tea in the kitchen…
Okay. Got the tea. (I also swapped the laundry, let the dogs in, threw away a bunch of trash on my desk, and opened a new pack of gum for when I finish my tea.) Anyways, forget about the lotion for a bit. I need to tell you how it has been going with my ROW80 goals.
Last Sunday, I made noise about needing a break from the first goal:
- Write a steampunk short story that is minimum 2k before May 31.
I have a concept in mind, just not sure how I’m executing it yet.
First of all, there’s a mistake in that goal. It needs to be 3k min. (Just fixed it on goals post so not to confuse myself later.)
Letter B, I did just that. And, just like I said I would on Sunday, I focused on some of the pre-writing work I had to do. To be exact, goal #3:
- For lack of better terms, do project packet for (code name) PMGCB.
I have bits of everything done in an unorganized fashion. Need to organize and finish prep, 3 outlines, and over view.
To be totally honest, I wasn’t grooving changing gears. However, I tricked myself (just like I tricked you here… into a blog pit… with a basket and lotion). I told myself, “I need to draw character concept sketches to really understand this piece.” It was an utter lie, but I love drawing. And as I was drawing I started thinking about personality and story… Then writer brain went, “Oh I need to get the prep on this done!”
I pretty much killed over half the work. I have only one outline to go and the overview to refine.
Honestly, I don’t see why I shouldn’t be done this come tonight. Which begs the question, “What am I going to do tomorrow through Sunday?” Quite frankly, I have no clue. So, I have no clue what my Sunday update will say (other than “finished goal 3”).
Wishing the best to my fellow ROWers. Hope your writing has you in good spirits!
Oh, right! The lotion… We’ll skip that today. FYI: There’s an escape hatch right there in front of you. Just press the little X in the upper right hand corner. 😉
