Failing to be sensible, again
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (0)

So, I made a very adult and sensible decision last week, which was that once I'd finished all my write-a-thon goals, I would take a little time off writing, to clear my head and give myself a break. I can't go back to Kat by Starlight until I've had at least 2 weeks away from the completed draft, anyway, so why not just relax and come back completely refreshed at the end of those two weeks?

Well, maybe because I'm an addict. I didn't do any fiction-writing at all this weekend or this morning, and now I feel like I'm going a little crazy. If nothing else, the mental restlessness might drive me over the edge. Sigh. I'm not proud of this. I should be able to take voluntary writing vacations. But I'm just not very good at them.

So I guess I'll be spending the rest of the day brainstorming possible short story ideas. It's been over seven months since I've written a new story, because novels - the Kat novels in particular - have eaten my brain in the meantime. But obviously I need something to do over the next two weeks if I'm going to hold out and stay away from KbS long enough to give it some breathing space (and gain some vestige of objectivity about it), so it sounds like time to start digging through possible ideas again.

In the meantime, I am just unbelievably geekily excited about the fact that Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog begins tomorrow! The first three episodes are showing online for free over the next week, but they're all going offline on July 20th, so make sure to watch them ASAP! (They're also going to be available for download afterwards, but not for free.) I can't wait! I even added the Dr. Horrible widget to my Facebook profile, because I am that much of a geek, and it makes me happy. :)
