Okay, so I wish that I were rushing into the week this way. Instead, I'm just plugging along. Maybe by the end of the day, I'll be embracing things!
And, my focus this morning isn't really on writing. It's about cleaning, and errands and home stuff, brought on by spring-like weather. But I know that I will get my writing done, since I'm meeting coworkers to unplug, and I'm skyping with a writing partner tomorrow. With that kind of accountability, I just have to move forward.
But, this is going to be a great week! Another W.I.B.I.J.?! game on Wednesday (1 PM and for 24 hours after), and a fabulous Friday Feature, yes, you guessed it--on Friday--here, with Laurel. Check out her blog, and get briefed so you can leave her an awesome question!
Another reason that I'm not jumping into writing this morning is because I'm waiting for feedback. It's hard for me to work forward, when I'm wondering how the feedback will be. However, I'll give it a try anyway. When all else fails, there's plenty of Easter candy here to keep me pumped up on sugar.
And, as for setting a goal? Hmmm. This week I want to do one pass through on the remainder of my book all the way until the end. And then save another pass through for next week. Let's see how much I get done!
I think I have to think about the revisions this week in a playful way. Like this:
It's weird that Dora seems to be in a constant state of watching. Like my coworkers. Yes, you know who you are--you guys are the Dora the Explorers of my writing life.
Okay, here's the final picture, that features the end of this chain of events, and shows how I hope to feel by the end of this writing week--pleased with myself.
What are you going to do today, even though you might not be embracing it? Do you write when you're not technically inspired? What is your goal this week? How did you do on last week's goal (if you were bold enough to set one!)? And, how do you make revising (or writing) playful? Let's embrace the writing, shall we??
