But here's the thing...I really don't want to. As you can probably infer from the title of today's post, I haven't been, of late, making much progress in the writing world (must be Monday, right?) and today's the day I have to own up to it.
So here is a quick review of last month's goals and—hey, what do you know—this month's goals:
1. Solve the major problem that is holding up all progress on Effigy's sequel, Second Nature. Or die trying. Well, maybe not die per say, but still, stop watching Scandal and get that plot hammered out.
The good news is I stop watching Scandal. Sure, it was because the season ended, but hey, it still counts. As far as hammering out the plot goes, I have made several pages of notes that may help me work things out. And, if they don't, at least my new pens are pretty.
2. Seriously stop ignoring Effigy's blurb. You need something more than "It probably won't be the worst thing you've ever read!"
I have several pages of notes on this, too, so technically, I suppose I did stop ignoring the blurb. I wrote a haiku blurb, and then a limerick blurb. Then I watched Merlin and "wrote" this blurb:
In a land of myth and a time of legend, the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young woman. Her name is Haleine Coileáin...
(And in case you don't happen to watch Merlin, the above is the opening of each and every episode. Only 'young woman' is 'young man' and is followed by "His name is Merlin...")
Think anyone will notice?
Yeah, me too.
Anyway, I really don't like not accomplishing my goals. Fortunately, the solution for that is simple.
Accomplish them next time.
Have a great Monday, everyone! Thanks for stopping by.
