So, last night, I wrote for the first time in almost a week. I don’t know why I haven’t wanted to write in the past couple of weeks, except that I felt like my writing just wasn’t going well. While I finished the rough draft of Project Star, it isn’t like finishing an actual project. There’s not that sustained natural high that there is when one finishes a full project. However, for some unknown reason, I really wanted write, so I made myself write and I really enjoyed it.
Reading and Writing Taking up the Same Time
I love to read and I love to write and sometimes those two loves compete for my (limited) pool of time. For some reason, this week, I’ve really wanted to read, but I used the time that I would normally write and just read. I’m rereading The Mallorean by David Eddings and I feel that has helped me stay sane. However, my writing time has taken a hit because I’m using that writing time to do my reading. Last night, however, I was so invested in writing that I wrote very quickly and finished up pretty quickly as well. I then, still had enough time to read a little bit of The Mallorean.
I Feel Sickness Coming On . . .
The problem is that I think I’m getting sick. I had a student in class today who had a Sinus Infection and some bronchus going on as well. Based on how I feel writing this blog post, I really don’ t want to get sick as I have waaaaaayyyyyy too much to do, but it looks like that is what’s happening. Not sure how this will affect my writing as I play it by ear; it just depends on how I feel. Well, that’s all that I have for now. See you next week!
