So, I managed to get some writing done this week. Once. Slack aye. Really annoys me, and really, I could blame me being sick, my husband being home, my son being home sick… but really, it was all to do with me not getting off my lazy butt and doing something about it.
But I did on Friday – I actually managed to get some writing done, and edited the first part of my Taniwha story – why editing? Because when I went through my plan, I discovered that I had something in there about comparing the two relationships that Rena has – with her boyfriend and the Taniwha. So I needed to make the relationship with her boyfriend a bit more substantial, and leaving little tidbits of information in there that would show up with later reflection.
And I think I have accomplished that now.
So this week, I have to make a concerted effort to actually get some writing done. I am about half way through the story, and about half way through the word count.
Half way, the magical mark. If I can just get over the hurdle of my illness, then I can really focus and concentrate – so I need to stop wallowing in my illness and get my writing going.
