A very quick update this week because… well… I was hoping to fill this slot with an author interview, but I’ve yet to receive that person’s responses.
Also, I’m a bit rushed because I’ve actually been writing this week. Who’d have thought?
Yes, indeed: I’ve started four short stories, finished one, and submitted it for publication. Hoping to finish the other four by the end of the week, but I’m not applying pressure to myself. If they’re not done, they’re not done. No deadlines are attached. What’s important, at this stage, is to finish them.
So – that’s your lot. Sorry it’s a bit dull, but I really do have to get cracking on these stories.
It’s so good to be able to say that!
“Sorry, folks, but I’ve got no time for that horseshit this morning. I’ve got a story to write.”
Ah, what heady days they were a whole week ago, with the tolling bells of a New Year still ringing in my ears. Doubtless you’re all agape, wondering how that first rush of creative largess went.
Well, that’s the plan, anyway.
I spent the afternoon clearing my desk, getting rid of various unwanted scraps of paper that were of no current use to me, and ensuring that I could face my first writing session of 2017 with nought in front of me but the blank word processor screen and that Godawful blinking cursor.
So here we are.
Wish me luck!
It’s that time again – a new day, a new week, a new month, and even a new year to look forward to.
If 2016 has been good to you, then may 2017 continue to be so. If 2016 has been something of a nightmare, then may 2017 promptly turn round and punch it in the dick out of solidarity.
This is the point of the year, of course, where we all make our promises to ourselves and others about how we’re going to change, grow, and improve over the next twelve months.
Well, not here it isn’t.
Sorry, folks, but I’ve got no time for that horseshit this morning. I’ve got a story to write.
Happy New Year!
