My VERY big projects is still in progress.
My (I guess I will say normal sized) other project is starting.
The interesting part however, is that I have been carving out a little bit of time (when available) and started working on short stories. As you may or may not know, I work full time and am also a fall time student; so time availability can be bothersome.
I have one flash fiction that is ready to go, minus some sort of cover sheet.
I also have another short story that is almost ready to go into revision. Withholding title until it is ready for release. I am super excited about this one.
To start with… Holly, you are my first subscriber. YAY! 🎉 Nowhere to go except UP! 😁
In doing the worksheets for my series building, I got trapped for a couple weeks in my person conundrum of “I can type this a hell of a lot faster.” Which is true, plus my handwriting looks like pure poo. Bevis and Butthead probably has better handwriting (if they were real).
Nothing wrong with typing; but I catch myself typing it and forgetting it. It is buried in sub-folders, out of sight out of mind, and there is always a shinier squirrel on my iPad. Multiple apps all screaming “OOH OOH, PICK ME. PICK ME!”
So after finally admitting to myself, I must stave off the Scrivener app until I am at a stage that I have my scene cards written. All pre-planning and worksheets are going in a small binder. I will just have to deal with my own chicken scratch.
What now? For the past couple weeks, I have been going through (during lunchtime) at work and transcribing my completed electronic worksheets back onto paper, and then deleting the electronic version. Should be caught back up this week. Afterwards, I will be back to finishing up the rest of lesson 2. Holly had said in her course that done right, this lesson will take some time. Boy oh boy! Take some time is right – especially with my own self induced “try to type it first” distraction.
