It’s already time for a ROW80 post! Â And I don’t have nearly enough to report. Â I did check in on blogs this week, so yay for that. Â But I only got to one writing session. Â A mixed bag of some progress but not quite what I had hoped and planned for. Â Still, it’s better than no writing at all.
I’m finding it harder to get into the new story than I thought it would be. I am struggling with my usual overwhelm. Â I have so many ideas, and I am not doing well at pinning them down. Â Why is it so easy to walk someone else through this stuff but so hard to follow my own advice? As usual, I get hung up on wanting to write thousands of words each writing session even though I know realistically my life won’t support that right now. Â So I tell myself to do it in small steps, but I want to do big steps, so I end up doing not much of anything at all. Â This round, I intend to wrestle this beast to the ground and build a regular practice! Â No more of this inner arguing.
I’ll be checking in on Wednesdays rather than Sundays most weeks, so I’ll be back on Wednesday with a short report. Â By then I intend to have done at least one more writing session and checked in on a couple of blogs from today’s check-in.
Do any of you struggle with this issue of wanting to write thousands and thousands of words but only have limited time that just won’t let you do it? Â What do you do about that?
See you Wednesday!
