A Productive State of Mind

I did it! I finished the prologue to my manuscript and sent it to Cresta. It was tough but worth it. I got that charge, that rush of excitement as I was writing. It was also very emotional because the scene itself is emotionally charged. I’m afraid it bled over into my everyday life. My apologies to my mother who had to deal with my sensitivity.

Now, on to the next chapter.

I would like to find some time to work on my short stories. I’m afraid to take on too much. I tend to shut down completely when I get overwhelmed. There are some good ideas rattling around in my brain and I want to give them life. My main focus will be the manuscript but when I need a break I think I’ll work on the shorts. See there, just typing that thought onto the page inspired a decision.

The only other writing related thought in my mind at the moment is whether to go ahead and submit Abandon to publications and/or contests. I know I said I was going to post it on Storiad or Inkubate but I can’t seem to make up my mind. It’s a good story and I want to share it. Decisions, decisions.

The next three days should be relatively free for writing. If I can stay away from Pinterest. Friday I have a medical procedure scheduled so I doubt writing will be on my mind.

I hope you all have a wonderfully productive week.

Happy Writing,
