Afternoon everybody. (ok, not too many everybody’s out there, but you’re all somebody to me, else why would I do this blog thing?)
What was that?
What was what?
That SMACK! referenced in the title?
Oh, that.. Well, that was the sound of my hand hitting my forehead.
Well, because I deserved a smack, no, wait! Hear me out.
I made a decision to start writing a while back (can we say August or so?)
Yep, I did, it’s in a back post here somewhere… Lemme see…http://wp.me/p17aO9-1
And so since then I’ve… well I’ve dropped the ball.
I blamed NaNoWriMo, I’ve blamed work, removations, etc.
The truth? I spend way too much time playing around on WDC, Writing.com, a writer’s website. I justified it by saying I was learning, but the truth is that I am spending far too much time that I don’t have just working over’s other’s works, trying to find good and bad points in it.
What do I get out of this? I learn some things, kinda, and I can see for free what really works fairly well, and what really doesn’t.
I was hoping to get what I write, read and analyzed so that I might get better. That’s not happening thus far.
For your public entertainment, here’s the link to the online portfolio.
I have to get back to work here, oddly enough this post ties into the other one I was also working on about multitasking and productivity.
I have to some thinking before I can continue the thought track I am on. In short I need to find some middle ground where the actual writing gets done.
P.S. I don’t know how many of you are waiting for it but the next segment of Adrift will be posted by sunrise, or thereabouts.
