I had so many things planned, those little bits and pieces that seem to get away from you.
It’s now Wednesday night and I have only just come back to this post to write some more or maybe finish it, but that should you some idea of how easy the simple things can get away from me.
To fill in the gaps in the story, I started to make a list of those bits and pieces, and that was the first mistake.
I frightened myself.
Tuesday disappeared in writing down what was on my writing slate. For instance,
Episodes 11 to 15 of the murder story, because my characters are having a fight in my head
Episode 58 of the treasure hunt, which is getting very near the end – and it’s going to be a huge surprise
Episode 45 of the Castello di Brolio story, where the Germans are about to find themselves on the wrong end of the war
Episode 1 of the WW2 story – this has a start but is it Episode 1. What bothers me is that I wrote some of this on the plane, but it disappeared somewhere, so I’m not sure when this may get done.
Writing instead of insomnia is actually giving me insomnia
Episodes 140 through 150 of Being Inspired, Maybe – Volume 3. This is a series of photographs, and the story inspired by them.
Just about finished editing Volume 2, and I’m about to publish Volume 1.
Episode 30 through 35 of PI Walthenson’s second case, a title had been created by the jury’s still out whether it’ll be adopted, and there’s an interesting dynamic developing between the son and the mother, a woman whom he is discovering to be nothing like the one he thought he knew.
And, don’t get me started on where I am with Strangers We’ve Become, because the rewrite seems to have stalled at page 360ish. The book is done but rereading told me, or the cat did far more emphatically, there a few gaps. This needs to get done, and I need to stick the courage to the sticking point.
Wednesday arrived and I was looking at the list wondering what I was going to do next and realized that I’d been putting off writing the next few posts on the traveling blog which desperately need to be done.
Traveling blog times two, and now it’s Thursday.
Damn, where did the week go?
