I was supposed to write this week. Instead, I found myself doing more driving than normal, by a long way, and I am utterly shattered. The writing I’ve been doing is spotty, but if I’m honest it’s still more regular than normal. I can make all the plans that I want, but until the day comes where sitting down at a set time and writing is part of my routine, it’s not going to happen.
Of course, I also discovered a new toy this week: TiddlyWiki. A free way to indulge in worldbuilding, with a personal wiki covering each aspect. I have a strong feeling I’ll be using it as a way to log characters and their bios, which makes me think I’ll finally get around to naming some of the persistently faceless ones who’ve been running around in my head for ages.
The writing I *have* been doing has been the usual mix of productive, many-thousands-of-words scenes and the ubiquitous passes-200-by-a-hair drabbles I’m so good at. Hopefully, as I get used to this One Project approach, I’ll improve on the former and cut down on the latter.
In other news, I passed my PRINCE2 Foundation exam this week. Yay! Of course, I spent a decent amount of the course time applying the approach to writing rather than business projects, but as long as it pays off I don’t see a problem with that!
In case you were wondering, the One Project approach is nothing more than my forcing myself not to write anything but one project, to hopefully get something written instead of it all living in my head.
All right, that’s enough for now. I will be spending this weekend catching up on sleep, TV and writing, so the next post should hopefully be a little more coherent.
