A weird week is now over...

It seems like this year's still feeling a little wonky. At least, it is for me.

I just can't seem to get my writing groove going the way I want it to. It's never happened to me before, not like this. It almost feels like my muse has taken an extended leave and is now only coming back on a part-time basis. Seriously, I keep getting short spurts of creativity, followed by nothing. Weird.

At least I've managed to figure some things out about the R&R story I need to get through before tackling anything else. I managed to get a bunch of notes written, pretty much detailing the whole first chapter, and even wrote a whole conversation. I'm happy with how it's coming along--finally--and even got writing this morning. I've now managed the first 2k, which might not sound like much but after the amount of struggling I've been going through, it's great.

I'm also hoping that this kickstarts my muse, creativity, motivation and puts me on the right track to finally run with it. I know that as soon as I get past the first two chapters, I'll be able to move a lot faster. I'm just so determined to get everything right. Though it's no longer the driving force behind this story. Now, I'm actually looking forward to getting it done. So, yeah, a change in attitude certainly helps. :)

We'll see what happens next week, huh? lol.

Asides from the above, I've been bitching about the shitty, rainy weather that's pretty much ruined this whole summer in Sydney, and I've also been reading some more.

Actually, I read two really awesome holiday short stories last night. They're both by James R. Tuck, and feature his character Deacon Chalk. One is called SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP, and the other one is TWAS THE FRIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. They were both really cool, fun tales. So after reading the prequel novella and these, I can't wait to get started on BLOOD AND BULLETS. Which I already have on my TBR pile. :)

Have a good weekend!
