A week ago I announced that I was going to do Camp Nano by editing my MS Stop The Raven and today kicked off with an interesting start. While I did manage to work on a writing project it wasn’t Stop The Raven. I spent the day between editing my short story Eldrich’s Forgotten for a submission that just opened up and cleaning my house.
This is a story that I wrote last year for a Black Hare Press submission that got rejected and thought I would tidy it up since I’ve realized some of my common mistakes since that time and submit it some where else. Crossing my fingers it finds a home here, but we’ll see what happens.
And yes, I know I could have done all of the cleaning and editing this past two weeks but I’ve been in a writing slump. Including editing anything that needs to be looked at.
Part of the reason I said I would attempt Camp Nano is because I’m hoping it will give me that drive needed to complete this long ass project.
But that’s not to say that all is wasted. With Eldrich’s Forgotten finished and just needing another read through and my house mostly clean I can focus on Stop The Raven for most of the day tomorrow and ot to mention I have this July 4th weekend off that will allow me to hopefully catch up in the coming weeks. So the first day went kind of sideways, but I worked on a project, and I’m proud of myself for that.
Was it the project that I really wanted to work on? No.
But after two weeks of goofing off and not working on anything it was good to just deep my toes back into the writing process and for that I always be excited about.
So here’s to the first day of Camp Nano officially in the bag and here’s to hoping that the rest of the month goes without anymore hick-ups.
Until next time!
