Three Day Week

I only worked three days this week and didn't get a lot done. Tomorrow I'm going to the movies. Those of you who've been reading my blog for awhile know that this is what I do during the first draft. I go to movies on Fridays. Well, maybe not through the whole first draft but a lot of it.

I look forward to having three days off. I need to think more about this novel before I go on and I'll do that over the weekend. So that's not having time off, is it?

At least I've made a start even though I'm not totally comfortable with the idea I've chosen.

Haven't I been here before?

You just need to warm up that muscle and you'll be off.

I think I understand what you mean.

I started a novel a couple of months ago, even wrote the first two chapters. But it didn't feel right. I liked the concept but struggled to put it down on paper. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to put it aside and work on another story idea that had intriged me, and now I'm writing again. And I feel better about it. I just wish I had admitted to myself sooner that the first idea wasn't ready.

I hope your idea sticks with you in the days to come. You'll know soon enough, I imagine.
