Today has been a writing day.
I felt quite overwhelmed this morning about how much I have to do so today was going to be a day of getting stuff done. And because a lot of what needed doing was writing it was writing day. I was going to go and write in a coffee shop for a while but it was raining this morning when I was going to leave so I thought I’d go after lunch. Only I never actually got out of the house. To make myself feel better I’ll blame that on the last lingering remnants of my cold. It’s not really but we’ll pretend it is, ok?
I haven’t been able to write any fiction but I’ve written (or researched or chased for information or whatever I needed) several small things off the list and I feel better. The to do list isn’t looking as great as I would like because I’m waiting for a few people to get back to me before things can be ticked off but it’s improved.
And I had a very interesting conversation with someone for an article I’ve since written. I enjoyed it’s tough to get notes down while talking to someone on the phone. Especially when you can relate to a lot of what the other person is saying but have to bite your tongue from sharing your own experiences and thoughts on the matter. As a writer it’s not about me, must remember that!
I really do need to start making fiction writing a priority though and not the treat at the end of the writing day when everything else is done.
