Hey everyone, how are you?
This afternoon it is going to be about writing. I am going to make sure that I get something done.
This afternoon is all about writing and making an attempt at a short story. Today is the last day before the short story is potentially shelved for a while. I work well under the pressure of a deadline when it is set by someone else. But this is one that I have set myself and I hope that it has the same effect on me. I have the idea for the short story and how it is going to pan out in my head. It is just a case of getting it down on paper. As I mentioned in my previous blog I am getting distracted easily. So, I need to turn off any potential distractions and just sit and write.
I also need to work on the homework for my course. It should not take too long. I am going to do it before the writing, as I hope doing it will get me in the right frame of mind to continue on with writing. I think the thing I fear the most with this short story is failing. And I think that is both driving me and stopping me simultaneously. It’s almost like a self fulfilling prophecy. So, I need to turn this in to motivation to get the short story written.
I also want to get some reading in today as well. I haven’t been reading as much as I’d have liked. And I am missing out on so many stories that I could read. So, I really need to kick myself and get back on it. I also need to do more on the social media side of this blog. I’m on Twitter @jokerlaw and instagram @annetteswritings. There is also a Facebook page with the same name as the Instagram one, but it is not used that much. The best way to get in touch is through Instagram.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
