Random stuff...

Well, the school holidays have officially arrived. My daughter's home, and she's already got plans for the two of us. I told her that as long as I could squeeze in some writing time during the day, that was fine.

Except, it becomes a bit of a pain when she keeps cutting into my train of thought. :/ Every five minutes.

Yeah. I picked up the lappy, sat down on the couch, and attempted to start a new novella I would like to have done before the end of the year. But I had to stop at about 1k because she kept popping into the living room to ask questions. You know how it is when you're writing, right? I may be physically sitting on the couch, but I'm not really there. I'm somewhere else, catching the visuals of the story I'm trying to tell. Caught up in another world, and getting jolted out of something like that grates on my nerves.

So, I put the lappy away and have decided to get back to it tonight. After she's tucked into bed. Why do I get the feeling that it's gonna have to be like that for the next month or so?

Anyway. I'm not complaining. Not really. I knew it would be like this.

Of course, there's also the case of the wandering-mind. See, as much as I want to write this new novella - because the beginning scenes are already inside my head, ready to be told - the novel I finished re-writing last week just won't get out of my head. A bunch of snippets keep filtering in. Mostly about future installments. It's very distracting, but cool at the same time.

I kinda feel like focusing on that instead. :/

Not to mention that we're halfway through TRUE BLOOD and I keep trying to compare the show to the books. I know I shouldn't do that, but I can't help it. Lol. So far, I'm lovin' it. Sookie's one of my fave characters, so it's great to watch her. Though it does feel a little weird knowing all the stuff I do after reading so much of the series - I'm only one book behind because of the hardback release schedule.

Anyway, that's enough rambling on for today. I'm in one of those moods today, where I could keep raving on about random things as they pop into my head. ;)

Have a great day!
