This was my plan, but now I'm feeling guilty about not going to the family cottage. This is when we put out the dock/clean/put the boat in, etc. I feel like a jerk if I don't help. We shall see if guilt or my writing desire win out
Yes..crazy/pathetic/boring...I'm all those things and more...LOL I was rummaging around last night and found an old short story that I had written years ago. I'd forgotten all about it. I still think it has potential as a sci-fi type drama so I'm going to play with it this weekend. Holidays! Bah! Who needs them?
Not this time, but I know the feeling all too well. I just finished one big project and am waiting for the co-author to finish the last few chapters of the next project on my to-do list (second draft is mine). So for once I don't have any heavy writing planned for the holiday weekend.
But omigosh, every 3-day weekend or random "stay-cation" that I don't have other commitments is so precious to me. Of course I write nearly every day for a few hours, but being able to indulge in a gluttony of 8 or 12 or 16 hours of writing for a couple days in a row is so nice - relaxing, invigorating, and (almost always) super productive. I hear the burnout doesn't *really* kick in until 12-hour day #9. *smirk*
So by all means, do it when you have the chance. I hope you get lots of writing done!
That's my intention. I have maybe 10-15k words I want to get done between now and the end of Monday - we work Saturday which is a bummer but I'm still hoping Sunday and Monday both can be like my last few weekends (the last two Sundays I've written 4-6k each). That would be the last push on this novel then I can set it aside and start outlining my YA desert adventure.
