Clouded Writing

Writing has been going slow – still. I don’t know if I’m trying to do too much with sewing a quilt, crocheting a doll and writing a story. Don’t forget the blog posts.

I also have too many unfinished works in progress piling up. How? Well, I come across a prompt that jars something in my muse and I start writing. Then the tree falls across the path and I can’t get over it or around it. I don’t think it is a plot hole. Maybe that’s the problem. Maybe I need to dig a tunnel under the tree to get around it. Hmm – I wonder what’s under the surface?

I love reading fantasy! Game of Thrones is my ultimate high. I’m on book four after reading one book a month. But like I said, maybe I have too much going on. Don’t forget the hot weather. I should be done with book four, but I’m still at 6%. It’s not that I’ve lost interest. I think there are other things distracting me.

I love GRRM writing! I love the way he builds his characters, shows the settings, fills in the backstory, and mystifies the plot. – By the way – I believe Jon Snow will live. I haven’t gotten to that part of the storyline, but he is a warg and if they don’t kill his wolf, he should live on – unless he is beheaded.

I have to finish reading the series, there’s no doubt about that. I want to learn to be a writer like him, weave a story just like George Martin. Settings and description always give me the most trouble. I’m not actually sure about how well my characters are built. Those will take a bit more skill too.

Blogging does help with my writing, along with time and patience.

I’m trying to build a blogging schedule. That’s not the easiest thing to do when you work a full-time job. Please forgive me if I go off schedule from time to time. At least now, I have a vague idea as to what my blogging schedule could look like. A bit of photo, poetry, flash fiction, quotes of the day, news flashes, and any other craziness I can come across.

Next month my RWA meetings return. Monadnock Writers’ Group begins their meetings again too.

It’s been a busy summer, with health issues and recovery. Returning to work was most welcome when I started feeling better and grow stir crazy. I think I’ve had a full overhaul this summer, between doctors, eye doctors, and dentists.

My hopes for this fall are:

  1. Finish one work in progress
  2. Pick and can applesauce
  3. Go to King Arthur’s Fair in Carver Mass.
  4. Take pictures of Fall leaves
  5. Make sure the Maple trees are marked with paint so I can tell them from the Oaks in February for Sugaring Season.

That’s five things. I’d be happy if I could at least get around to doing one of them.

What are your plans for the coming fall?
