ROW80 Check-In: 1/26/2011

I'm in a rut...the kind of rut you get in when that terrible trait called procrastination rears it's ugly head.  My ideas are all over the place so the research is not going well and I've even started slacking on the journaling...already! I'm still trying to devote an hour each day, but it's getting hard.  I really probably should have waited until we have completely finished moving (yes, we started moving during the holidays, but due to bad weather, we are still moving stuff from old to new digs...ugh) to sign up for a writing challenge, but I really don't want to put my writing on the back burner anymore.  It's like there is this little subconscious cook inside me that is always trying to slide it on to that back burner.  I think I need to fire him!

So...my goal until next check-in is to reduce my daily time to 45 minutes...for the time being.  That will be 15 minutes for journaling and 30 minutes for research, note taking , etc.  We will see how it goes!  

How are things going in your writing world?

  1. I'm still amazed that you manage to get any writing done at all during the move.I'm not sure that I'd be able to do that. Moving is so stressful.

    Maybe you could try something different to get the creative juices flowing... create a playlist for your story, find images that fits your characters, create wardrobes for them on http://www.polyvore.com/ or watch a movie that is similar to your story for inspiration... Good luck! :)

  2. I'm not sure if this will work for you, but the hour thing stopped working for me too. I started with listing one or two things I would do for that day. It's helped get me going again.

    Just don't give up. That's the key. :)

I apologize for comment moderation, but I seem to get a ton of spam so I'm afraid it's unavoidable.

Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated!
