I only managed to write 1096 words in March, a brand new low for me—my lowest low, in fact. Most of those words weren’t even for CM, my current WIP. Granted, I did take a break from writing at the start of the month to revise, and I have been obsessed with making art lately. On top of all that, I finally had a job interview, so—you know—that stole a little bit of my time as well. Still, those are just excuses—and not even the real excuses for my lack of writing. I’ve purposely been avoiding CM, too afraid I can’t fix the sucky bits, but I’m determined now to somehow break this habit, since no way will any writing get done in April otherwise.
Seriously! April will be the month where I start writing steadily for CM again, no matter how cringe-worthy all that new writing will be.
The fact that any new writing has occurred at all will lead to much happy-dancing…
…and, of course, celebrations with my critique partner.
Or maaaaaybe, after just a few minutes of skimming through CM, the thought of writing will, once again, seem daunting…
WTF?! I'm supposed to write now? With WORDS?!?!
…and just like in March, I won’t be able to resist running from my manuscript instead of working on it.
Run from the emo manuscript! RUUUUUNNN!!!
Feel free to place your bets now on which scenario will occur….
