Why I haven’t been writing this week

1) Tired! Just exhausted when I finally sit down after dinner…can’t put two words together.
2) Being a promo ho…7 blogs in 6 days can take it out of a girl!
3) At a weird place in my story…a bridge scene within scenes I’ve already written. There will be a point where all words will be new words, but I need this scene first.
4) This scene isn’t playing out on the page the way it did in my head back when I was working on revisions for other stuff.
5) My confidence in the story is shaken since critique group…not their fault, mine. I need to remember I need distance before I send stuff out.
6) Uneven schedule-SARA, two early mornings at school, tutoring, people not being where they’re supposed to be when they’re supposed to be there.

I’m so mad at myself, because there’s other stuff I want to work on, and I didn’t write at all this week. And now I have 4 contest entries to judge, and am still waiting on revisions on my short story, which I’m sure will come the minute I get into a groove….

I need to get to the dry cleaners, library and bank today. Otherwise....

HUGS Mary. Maybe the story just needed to percolate this week. Good luck next week!
