I’m so far behind it’s not even funny.
I can’t really blame it on any single thing. I just lost my groove. I got out of “work mode” and I’m struggling to get back to that place that doesn’t mind getting up at 5 AM and has no interest in doing anything but writing.
Certainly not watching Phantom of the Opera AGAIN like I did last night, this time with the monsters. Then I watched it again after they went to bed, only I fast forwarded through everything to hit only the scenes I wanted to see. I had to quit listening to the sound track, because those songs are still pounding in my head this morning and I can’t seem to think of anything else.
So this is a rather sorry update. I will not be finishing 7Crows by the end of the month. I’ve finished one scene of 20+. It’s not going to happen. That’s fine. I’ll take my time and do it right the first time, AFTER I finish the Maya revision, which I haven’t touched for days.
My first order of business today (2/17/2009) is to finish the next new scene in Tara’s POV. I’ll report back tonight on how I did and where I stand in Revision Xibalba.
