I am wrapping up the last two weeks of my full-time job and inundated with big projects and getting organized and what not. So, I’m having a hard time focusing on the creative part of my life. I try to work on my story, but my mind zooms to deadlines and whatnot.
My creative writing class has helped me with this a bit. Even though I am not working on my WIP, I am doing the short exercises along with my students. It keeps me writing even though it’s not focusing on what I’d like.
Still, as I wait to hear back on my partial (20 week mark today), it’s not so bad having my focus be elsewhere. I’m also liking the challenge of writing something I don’t normally write. I think it is helping me look at my writing more analytically and hopefully improving my ability to show over tell.
Anyway, as I wrap this up over the next two weeks, posting may be a bit sporadic, but then THEN I will be free to focus on my writing more!
