Okay, so I started that new novel, right? Great news. Then I got stuck right out of the gate.
I mean, I am RUSTY, people. I had NO idea I was so weak. I have to go back and revamp the first thousand words for Pete’s sake! Tweaks, I guess, but come ON! These are rank amateur mistakes I’ve made. These are the mistakes of someone who’s working on the first thing they’ve ever written, not someone who’s started at least three novels, finished one, and written hundreds of thousands of words. I really feel poorly about what I’ve done to this point and have to get back into it.
Also, having a structural plan didn’t help with motivation at all. And execution. Only with the path the story will take. So I need some motivation and inspiration and HOLY COW, practice practice practice! (Which I thought I was getting!)
Guess what my weekend plans are? G’head, guess.
What about you? What are your plans for the weekend, and if you’re a writer, how do you “find it” when you’ve seemed to “lose it” – the knack, the savvy, the suave?
Have a good time whatever you do.
