Ups and Downs

I have been writing and drawing a LOT. Unfortunately, it’s more exercise and practice stuff. I’m doing a lot of journaling, which is mostly personal.

I spent a two week stint designing proposal templates on oDesk so I was occupied there. Hey, money is money.

A lot of my private journaling comes from thoughts and introspections as I deal with the one-year anniversary of my father’s death, as well as being there for my mom while she goes through it. It’s not pretty stuff. One thing is a hard constant: I still don’t like sharing my feelings. Apparently people think that’s something I need to work on.

I’m musing and outlining my Nanorwrimo novel, thinking of a cohesive plot. I’m trying to get over the strange fear of editing Killer Orange. I wonder if I can get through that. It isn’t a block so much as a feeling of dread, like a dirty chore, and I need to get through that. I’m open to what other writers do when they feel overwhelmed with dread in editing their works.

On the upside, this Saturday was Madison Pagan Pride day, and I met High Priestess and activist Selena Fox. She’s one of my idols, and she’s so charming and full of love and joy. I wish I could be half the woman she is.

Work is going really well, but more is continually expected of me. Such is the game.

More writing progress posted soon!

Cheers!

  1. At least you’re journaling. Apparently “people” think I need to work on sharing my feelings too, and I’m not buying it. I need to journal, but can’t seem to get there. I get worse writer’s block in front of my journal than I’ve ever gotten with any novel. Go figure.

    So on Saturday you drove right past me – twice! 😛 LOL

    • I think I’d rather be editing my novel than journal, but the muse gets what the muse wants.

      Aww! Haha, I don’t know. My mom took one screwy way to get to Madison this time on the back roads. I was about to snap. Haha.
