Let’s face it — with a brand-new baby in the house, the amount of actual writing going on over the last little while has been pretty much zero. This does not mean there hasn’t been progress, though. On the plus side, plot points have been percolating in my otherwise overtired brain.
And while it will certainly feel somewhat like getting rusty gears moving again, I’m beginning to get that slightly anxious feeling that tells me I should be BIKHOK-ing again. (That’d be Butt In Chair, Hands On Keyboard for all you newbies out there.) Truthfully, nothing may happen for a little while yet — there is that overtired thing mentioned above. And that fact that Miss Junior Peanut is still trying to figure out just what sort of routine to get into.
There’s no real hurry, I guess (other than the factor of my own impatience). I do know, though, that there’s certainly going to be a 1K-word daily requirement imposed. Being an author can’t be treated as a hobby — it needs to be given the same importance as a regular office job. So deadlines must be set and met. That’s all there is to it.
But for now, I’m going to nurse and watch movies and attempt to get my energy back. Soon it’ll be, look out world!
