An Unoriginal Post Title

Hi everyone - remember me? :P If I remember correctly, I have only ever posted once on this blog and I swear on my laptop (think of what this entails - every single character I've created, along with every single word I've written has been sworn upon. And that is deep, my fellow writers.) that I will make the greatest effort in the future to post much more frequently. With that aside, let me fill you in on how my writing life has been going lately. Most recently (as in, the last week, at least) I have been a complete writing DUD (if you do not count the writing assignments I had to do for my 'beloved' (yeah, right) novel study. Yes. Not a word has appeared in my word processor on my laptop for a nearly significant period of time. Before I get totally boo-ed off the blog, though, in my defence, I did go through a surprisingly long writing streak a little while ago and I wrote three, quite decently long short stories. And yes, I edited them, which is usually completely unheard of for me, because normally my stories sit neglected in my numerous writing folders or my desktop, avoided by my Inner Editor, because I know they are not exactly golden. One of those short stories may also blossom (for lack of better word) into a novel. I feel good about it, which doesn't exactly happen for every single document I save onto my hard drive. Moving right along to my current werewolf novel, I have been itching to revisit it and since I will be spending a good chunk of time in the car traveling tomorrow, I figured that tomorrow would be a good time to do just that (coincidentally, there also happens to be A YARN STORE right across the street from where I will be spending most of my day. I get an hour and a half lunch break, so I figured that if I got between 15-30 minutes to eat then I will be very happy. Even more so if I leave said yarn store with a yummy skein of sock yarn). But I am beginning to ramble -nips rambling in the butt-. I think I'll briefly revisit the last chapter for flaws and do all that fun editing stuff, then move on and write as much as humanly possible (hopefully) for the rest of the trip. Worst case scenario, I can just stack yarn on top of my laptop and knit the rest of the ride if I get discouraged. As much as I would love to just knit, I believe my writing needs more tending to than my needles. Or, you know, I could also just go and work on another story. We'll see how it goes. On that note, I think that's enough for one post. Happy writing. ~K ETA: there appears to be something wrong with my computer (grr), so the lovely structured blog post I wrote has been mashed into one, un-professional looking lump. -blushes-

  1. Ah, I'm glad you're back. I've also been having a bit of a stick when it comes to writing. It's like the story plays out in my head but my hands refuse to type. And then schoolwork keeps distracting me....
