Whew, where has the time gone?! Between traveling home for five days to help my grandma celebrate her 85th birthday, and then the chaos that accompanies moving house confronting me the second I got back, my goals have been barely touched. I did get a fair bit of reading done while I was away, and since coming back I’ve written a few pages, but that is about it. This weekend was also a write-off, as I had two days of singing/choreography rehearsals for the production of Guys and Dolls that I am in, and when I got home from those, I had no desire to do anything apart from lie on my bed and pat the cat. However, I am determined that come tomorrow, I will get things back on track. I really don’t want this to turn into Round 2, Mark 2.
There was also the problem that I misplaced the notebook in which I had written the opening to my new WIP while moving. I knew it was in one of the two boxes to still be unpacked, but it was annoying. I continued writing in the notebook at the back of my diary, but dammit, I wanted that bit! Mostly because I wanted to type up what I had and I couldn’t do that if I don’t have my opening paragraphs… having said that, I recently found it, but have I typed anything up yet? No.
Speaking of that story, you know you’ve been marathon-ing Buffy the Vampire Slayer when you realise you are unconsciously mimicking Joss Whedon’s voice in your own story about demons. As much as I love Joss, I’m kind of hoping I don’t keep it up; while it’s fine for writing fanfiction, it’s not my own writing voice and I don’t want to get a chunk written and then having it sound completely different and off, or get bored because I can’t keep it up anymore.
Anyway, my housemate and I decided we would throw on an episode of Buffy, since we’re both quite tired but neither of us want to head to bed just yet, so I shall wrap this up. See ya’ll on Wednesday. 🙂
