Le Sigh

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , ,
I've been writing and writing and thinking and thinking...plotting and plotting...and my head hurts. I decided to put aside all my proposals to work on a short story. Kind of like a mental exercise to get something finished. It's going to be about 50 pages and if it turns out well, I'll submit it somewhere.

So far the story is starting off lovely. I'm guessing that I could be done in as little as 3-5 days if I keep at it. On the other hand, it could take me 8-10 days if I get distracted, which hopefully that won't happen. I think that I need to write something for me and I'm not going to limit myself in what direction the story goes. I've spent the last few months so wound up about things I can't control so now I'm going to take a deep breath and do something I can control. Hopefully this project will help me remember why I love to write so much.

Sometimes it's easy to get carried away by excitement and passion but every so often you need to re-focus your energies on yourself. I'm going to be hiding in my writing cave for the next few days...maybe when I re-emerge, I will be ready to dive back into the proposal with a fresh outlook and a big smile....

I did the reverse of that. I put my short aside to refocus on my book! Keep at it!

I am deep in writing and twitter! But I will refrain from getting too involved with the latter.

Sometimes you do need to take a breather in order to re-energize. Keep going, I can't wait to here all about the short story.

BTW...we miss you here in Clermont. :o)
