Holy Time Change, Batman

So, did everyone remember to change their clocks back?  I didn't have to as most of the clocks in my house do it automatically.  Okay, so that means the cable box on my TV and my cell phone.  Less thinking, more looking like a genius.  No?  Okay, so it just goes to show that I'm into the whole "do it for me" thing.

I'm still on track as far as the Nano thing is concerned.  Kinda loving the story that's coming around.  I just have to get myself to a point where I worry less about the word count, but it makes me work a little harder.  I do have to admit that my main character is now seeing a therapist, poor thing.  LOL.  But at least he's trying to help her with her issues.  Nice guy.

I can't believe I'm so getting into this.  I think I'm finally finding my writing groove again.  I still have some issues to work on, but it's getting there.  I have to get myself out of that rigid article writing mind set.  I spent so much time doing those before walking away, that I still find it hard to do anything else.  Like this blog for instance.  It's hard for me to just do posts like this one.  I feel like I have to have a structured technique, but I really don't.  If you read me, cool.  If not, life goes on.  It's that simple. 

I'm finding that now that I'm doing the Nano thing, I'm having fun writing again.  And that's what it's all about, right?  To have fun with what you do?  And the really cool thing is that I'm starting to get ideas for stories again.  Not just the one I'm working on, but others for the future.  It's not feeling so forced anymore.  I still have a few road blocks, but not nearly as many as before.  It's a great feeling.  Maybe now that I'm starting to get my groove back, I'll be able to post more often here.  I like having an outlet for all the weirdness that is in my head. 

Okay, so I'm done boring you with all my stuff.  Keep on keeping on my friends.  And as always, happy writing.

  1. That's so funny you said that now that you're doing Nano, you're having fun. I feel the same way! I think there's so many lessons I can take from this, but most of all, turning that inner editor off is the number one key to rekindling my love with my writing.

    Oh, and I can't stop laughing. Your MC is at a therapist? I love it. I think all of our MC's need a therapist. If they don't, it's probably not a good story. ;)
