Well, we're entering the last week of July, and just think, I bet we're each ending the month with a few more words, discoveries, questions, & passions than we had when July began. I love how this group is helping to make the creative process (and the highs & lows that go with it) visible and maybe just a little more comfortable.
So, last week I said I would
- YES! Continue morning pages each day: I'm spicing mine up with markers, drawings, paint & glitter in an attempt to tap into my right brain first thing.
- YES! Write on CH 1 at least 15min FIRST thing after breakfast
- Made progress on M but didn't finish (but I did start typing up what I've written so far!) Finish M's pov, paste in L's pov from previous draft, figure out what's next
- YES! (2) 2-3 blog posts
- YES! keep reading each day; choose a new book
So, after such a luxurious weekend reveling in all things creative, I was not prepared for the start of a new week. I've noticed that after a fabulous-everything's-clicking-together week, I usually have a lackluster couple of days where I'm feeling all out of sorts. Kinda like the feeling I sometimes get the morning after a really kick ass party where I wake up tired & crashing from all the conversational, sugar-induced highs, wishing that the party was still going. To counteract that feeling this week, I'm going to keep my goals modest:
- morning pages: continue to incorporate sketches, doodles, etc
- 15min/weekday on CH 1 of the research book
- 15min/day on le novel
- 1-2 Italian podcasts
- read for fun (am loving my book baths--such a great way to drift off into a book w/o interrupting self w/ internet, etc)
- 2-3 blog posts
I'm looking forward to taking a closer look & commenting on everyone's posts in the next couple days.
Wishing each of you a writing week filled with discovery.
