Last Monday I had to vent my frustrations, so today we're all about the "POSITIVE!" And my happy moment from this week was getting my Google Friend Connect to work again! Wahoo! I've had some people emailing me that they couldn't get it to work and allow them to follow me so I'm excited to have it up and running... I think!
_1600_ words added to my MS. Not a ton, but I finally feel like I've got a grasp on this story and the characters. That always makes me happy.
_3_ moments of euphoria, because I think fireworks should count!
_1_ moment of frustration.
_3_ days reading a good book. I won't count the days I've fallen asleep after one sentence. Gosh, this has been a LONG week!
I have to say, life is looking up. I'm feeling more motivated that I'm MOVING FORWARD! Yes, it's a slow pace, but it sure beats standing still. Sometimes I still feel a little bit like this though...
And that should give you a little insight to part of my writing troubles. Too high of expectations for a FIRST DRAFT! I have the hardest time turning off the inner-editor and just getting the story on the page. It's ridiculous. It's like I want to critique and edit as I go and I don't think that's the best approach for me. Right now I'm working hard to just get the story out and reminding myself that I can and WILL edit LATER!
