So apparently I decided to take a week off from the blog. Totally wasn’t planned, I promise. It was a worthy sacrifice considering all of the fiction writing I’ve been doing lately. My short story (which I’ve dubbed DRAMA OF THE CORN) is coming along. At first I was driving myself crazy paying attention to every little word–It must be short!–and I finally realized that length matters not at this point. That’s what editing is for! Right now, I just need to get the story down because this bugger is effing persistent.
I’m also doing a lot of writing for work, which mostly consists of copy describing museum programs, tweets, and research notes for upcoming blog posts. It’s still enjoyable because I love writing but it exercises a different set of muscles. Plus, I can’t write kissyface there. Bummer.
Now that HAPPENS FOR A REASON’s in relatively good shape, I have to decide what’s going to happen with the other WIPs taking up room in my Dropbox. There’s at least four in varying stages. So intimidating. Which one to work on first? Do I trunk one (or more)? How can I get these stories to do what they’re told?
What are y’all up to? How do you decide which story to write next?
