Mid-Week Update: Stalling Tactics

I’ve been avoiding my major writing project for more than a week now. Shield is two-thirds written, and it’s pretty typical of me to get stuck about here. So wish me courage and a little get-up-and-go on that one. πŸ™‚

Does that mean I haven’t been writing? lol. No! I’ve been writing plenty. I’ve started (and nearly finished) two more short stories in the last two weeks. And last night I had an idea for a third, tied to one of the other recent shorts. I plan to spend a lot of my summer writing short stories. They’re claiming my attention at the moment. Lots of fun. πŸ™‚
Shield will get finished in the next couple of weeks. My goal there is still 5,000 words a week. A total miss this week, but I will recommit in the next couple of days and start to knock it out.
Best of luck this week, in your writing and in life!

  1. One of the nice things about short stories is that you can finish them fairly quickly. πŸ™‚

    Good luck with your summer story writing! I often find turning to something else when I get stuck can help a lot.
