If you read last week's blog post, then you already know that I decided my daily routine needed to change.
This is what I'm mostly talking about:
"So I want to get out of my head a bit more and get into the cycle I enjoy when it comes to work: a busy production line with a bunch of projects and possibilities."
Yeah. Between the ups and downs of the publishing business, a cluttered mind, too many ideas and distractions, it was really easy to get stuck in a rut. Not to mention that winter can become such a drag... Ugh.
But anyway, that was then. During the last week of August, I got back on the kind of productive track I've missed. Winter is done and spring is here, so I'm excited!
Anyway, I gave myself these goals:
- Write a quirky superhero short story
- Read a library book
- Start writing a horror/SF short story
- Send out a few queries
This is what I accomplished:
- Wrote 6k superhero short story
- Started writing horror/SF story (longhand)
- Revised superhero story
- Sent out some queries
- Proofread superhero story
- Finished reading BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
Not bad, huh? :)
I'm actually quite happy with what I achieved.
We even watched the first season of THE GET DOWN. Man. This is such a high-energy story about a bunch of people living in South Bronx during 1977. It's fun, sad, different, sweet, violent, and the music is excellent. We loved it.
So. There you go! I stuck to my plan and ended up doing even more than I expected. Cool. Sometimes you just gotta change your attitude, I suppose. Or your season. LOL.
I'll be doing the same next week.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
