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.

  1. I know how easy it is to get distracted by that blasted idiot box (aka “the tv”). I’m a total and complete sucker for cheap and easy entertainment.

    Here’s hoping you get back on track!

  2. Accursed distractions are boundless, I swear. 🙄 Even the necessary things that need to be done are still agitating when they get in the way of my writing. That’s been happening a tad too much for my liking. So believe me when I say I can totally understand.

    Good luck with getting back to RX and maybe it’s for the best that 7 Crows will be held off for awhile. As you said, now you can get it right the first time and it has a bit more time to develop and “boil” in the ol cooking pot for awhile. 😉

  3. Oh Joely- I have a book with your name on it. And I’m holding it hostage. 😀
    Email me and we can start the negotiations. *insert evil laugh here*
