Forgot about me? No doubt. Forgive me? I can only hope.
I’m in full first-draft swing. And let me tell you, it’s actually enjoyable. I know. This phase won’t last. Give me a few more days before I’ll want to rip my laptop apart. Spill coffee on the keyboard. You know. But for now, I’m trying to soak it in — ahhhh, the shear joy of creating.
BUT — I’m upset with myself that I’ve failed to balance both first-draft writing and blog writing. Because, as I’ve been reminded by those I’m following, it’s quite possible to do both. So, thank you. For shaming me into realizing I’ve been a lazy writer. (No, really.) I’m going to get with it, jump on it, and start blogging again. Slowly. But surely.
Accountability has begun.
