So... I am still not back on track. I have some work I need to critique for one of my critique partners. And some notes he gave me. But I still haven't gotten to that.
I also re-worked the outline for the first 9 chapters of Three of Ivory. Decided that was far enough for now and that I need to start writing. But didn't.
I started think about my other project that I want to work on. My dilemma is that the story really has two parts - and I don't know where to start. On the one hand I could start in the middle which would be exciting. I could then leave the beginning for a prequel. But I am kind of anti-prequels written after the fact. I have almost decided to write the beginning and then the end.
I also need to get Shadowed Stones ready to submit to the next publisher on my list. But - I haven't even started that yet.
So pretty much I have things I should be doing. But I'm not. To be honest I got knocked out of my writing grove earlier this year - and it has been a struggle to find my way back.
One thing that has helped me is reading everyone's blogs and seeing what they are up to. It makes me want to come back - even if I have been able to actually get there yet.
How is your writing going?
