Today I decided it was high time I worked towards my April writing goals, as I have mentioned before my monthly system is to write a schedule (and attempt to stick to it!) I have already missed a few opportunities (deadlines) this month as my main focus has been my Non-Fiction manuscript – Camp NaNoWriMo project.
I have spent the last hour researching for a short story I plan to write today. Many writers work on several projects simultaneously and as a freelance writer I am used to writing in this way. April has been a month shackled to one book project and my head feels full to capacity. I think I may be doing myself a favour stepping away from the book for a few hours, I will add to the word count later (especially as I am about 9 days behind)!
Writing a new idea can be as refreshing as a shower after a hike or eating a sandwich after a no-carb diet! I am certainly filled with a positive spirit. I have already lined up another short story to write tomorrow and I hope to have both stories finished and submitted before the end of the month.
Step it Up
Sometimes stepping back is a necessary step to move forward.
