I haven’t written one word in over a week (it might have been 2 weeks now that I think about it, that’s how long it’s been. I don’t remember.) What I have written is garbage and needs work. The concept is there but the execution isn’t because I haven’t been practicing lately.
So yesterday I made an important decision. If I want to call myself a writer (and I do) then I better start acting like one. I’m going to start writing everyday no matter what. I’m currently between projects at the moment so I’ll just work on character sketches or short stories until I come up with an idea that I can work with long term. If you see me or think of me ask me how I’m doing. I need the accountability. (Feel free and ask me via Twitter @nicholequade or comment below if you’d rather.)
I’m hoping to get a notebook tonight that will help inspire/motivate this project. (I’ll post a picture when/if I find something that sparks my fancy).
In the meantime I’m in the process of editing my short story. (And by editing I mean staring at it until I hate it). It’s gotten to the point that I don’t even know what to do.
Any suggestions for what I should write about. What do you do when you’re between projects?
