A couple days ago, I squeaked out the words that I might possibly not be able to write the story I’d been working on. That…maybe it wasn’t the right time yet.
Today, I spent the morning at home (took PTO) and just spent some time thinking more about it. Because the thing is, I’ve been thinking more and more about the story since I let my mind wander into the possibility of “maybe just give up for a time being.” And maybe that was the push I needed. Because today I had a pretty good breakthrough. I drew out some plot points that had been alluding me and came up with some unexpected ideas about how to get this out there without dragging my feet for eternity.
Per usual, that’s all I can divulge for right now. But tomorrow I also have the day off. Although the morning is a little busier, I would like to sit down and do some serious writing and editing and plotting and, of course, thinking and dreaming…before I go pick up little man from daycare.
What else did I do today? I drank three cups of coffee, got in a 3 mile run/walk, caught up on a couple HBO shows (but not GOT because that is a strict Jake/Jamie show), had a couple lip syncing/dance parties and gave barely a thought to my very full work inbox…because that’s what makes me happy on my day off.
Hope you’re all having a productive week!
