Whenever someone mentions the word Procrastination, I flinch. And then I say, "Procrastination is my arch enemy."
In the past week Procrastination has returned and sat upon my novel. Remember that revision post? I have it, more or less, worked out. The plot can go on with a large tweak...but I haven't gotten around to actually revising.
Gah! Procrastination has won this battle, but he has not won the war.
So now you know why I haven't been posting. When my writing falters, so does my posting.
But there are a few bright things shining through Procrastination's fog. For instance, resolution three on my list (see my post on New Years' Resolutions) has gotten a jump-start. Yes! I have gotten a phenomenal idea in starting the story. I won't actually write it until (at least) finishing the revision of the Book of Shaldu, but the idea is good and I hope the writing will be better than my previous novels. I'm going to take this one at a slower pace and pour all of the skills I have into extremely good writing, character, plot, etc.
But mostly I'm tired. I've been doing a lot of stuff, and I'm flying to Phoenix this weekend, so don't expect another blog post from Thursday on until Monday or something. :P
But here's a mug of egg nog (tis not just a holidays drink!) to getting some writing done in the next week. And a rootbeer toast to the blessed snow that fell last night. :)
