Writing Journal/Random Notes 4.8.2018: A lull before the new action

It was a slog this week. Here it is:

+0 words written.

Days writing: 0  out of 7.

Days revising: 3out of 7 for 300  total minutes.

Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of revisions): 3 out of 7 days.

Well, I did say I was going to take it easy this week.

Is it good news that I’m just getting antsy if I just take time off? Maybe that’s for the best. I think that I really don’t know what to do with myself when I am not working on a project, which is such a better feeling that just sitting on my butt for years at a time.

So, what am I doing? I read through one person’s work in my writing circles; now I’m going to do another one of those, although that process will take longer. I want to keep poking around on The American Nine, even if I don’t do too much with it at the moment. There’s at least two or three projects I could revive that I still have passion for at various levels.

I want to keep writing, even if it’s rubbish. And that’s a good feeling.

[UPDATED: I also went to my Facebook writing groups to get their input on the question I asked before of whether to count my blogging writing toward my writing totals. General consensus is that it should be counted. So, as of the next writing journal, those totals will go into the count.]

Random Notes!

  • Going to get at least another mid-week post out. It’s one of those that’s been hanging around for a while, so I’ll be happy to get it out the chute.
  • I think I have social media posts covered until… the end of the month? So, that’s a good feeling.
  • I’m dealing with what I think is a pinched nerve in my neck. I might have to consider changing sleeping positions, writing positions, etc. It will be nice when this sorts itself out or my new chiro does.
  • I will talk eventually regarding what The Holy Fool’s publication status is. Right now… it appears there’s some movement on that front. As soon as there’s product, you’ll be the first to know, faithful readers.

That’s it for an admittedly boring week! I’ll have more to read about later, promise.
