Another busy day with lots of presents and family around. It was a lovely enjoyable day, made all the more pleasurable by the company of a friend who is currently staying with us until she has her baby (which at the time of writing is 7 days overdue!)
As a result of all of the activity going on around the house, no writing has been made. No creativity has taken place, no beading has been done, and as a result, one very frustrated writer! I am feeling very frazzled and concerned about the lack of effort I am putting into trying to write! I have lots of excuses, but that is what they are.
Am I beating myself up? Hell yes! There is nothing wrong with taking the laptop to bed at night and writing, except I haven’t been to bed before 10pm most evenings and that tired that I read for 5 minutes before passing out. I could make 5 minutes in the day, but my 6 year old son wants to go swimming, or I am talking with my friend. At least she is understanding my frustration, which does help a little bit.
Anyway, the Gothic novel is still not finished, and not looking promising for anytime soon, but I have promised myself that I will not start writing the next story until this one is finished, and it is only good habit to start getting into.
So on to the next holiday – New Years, when I will reveal what my next years writing goals will be, and I am quite excited to get started on them.
