I'm going to try to make a post here, but it's not entirely promising at this point since the youngest child has awoken much earlier from their nap than expected. She is currently sitting next to me swinging a foot wildly around. If you see a random ` or something, it's just her and i neglected to remove it from the post. :)

A couple weeks ago I posted that i had been writing a ton. Then I took a couple weeks off unintentionally. I can't focus on one thing for too long. I have to bounce around a bit to keep things interesting. HOWEVER... reality started to hit me this week when i realized the fantasy big bang rough drafts were due in 6 weeks, then the final drafts 6 weeks after that. holy flailing cow. I dare say I have *ahem* a bit of writing to do. I'm not even really sure how much more I need to write since I'm all over the place, writing a scene here and there. With a full time job, parenthood, upcoming class for 8 weeks of that time, and various other vices that all vie for my attention, I get nervous about getting things done.

But.. anyway.. I took the day off work yesterday. I have lots of vacation time, and we aren't taking a big week long vacation this year. I sent the kids to daycare and focused on projects. I did some editing of SM during breakfast at a diner. Then I went to the library for over 2.5 hours. They have this nice little Quiet Room with carrels (perfect for me who gets distract by imaginary things in the corner of my eye). I wrote a ton. Then came home to eat and wrote a bit more before I needed to pick up the kids. I wrote over 4000 words. that was only about 1.75 scenes, but still. I can't complain though. I finished that partial scene today plus some. I have over 20 handwritten pages to transcribe too.

I'm pleased with how that went though. I may need to take a day off here and there as needed. Or run away from home and over to the library for some peace and quiet occasionally. One good thing is that the house is currently really clean so I don't have that hanging over my head right now... like "omg the place is a wreck you should clean instead of write!"

ok, both kids are up now and I'm feeling really distracted. I will go for now and see if I can make a dent in the Reading page. :)

oooo.. neat.. I saw this on someone's DW and thought this was a neat way to share a bit more about me and also to get myself posting here a bit more often since it seems I come here once every 2 weeks and then have a crapload of stuff to read about...

1. Why did you sign up for Dreamwidth?
I was looking for a new place to have a writing blog. I had one on blogspot, but I didn't like it. I found posting there to just be a pain in the butt. Plus I didn't have much of an audience. Ok... I had NO audience at all, and there really wasn't a way for me to create one without putting forth more effort than I was willing to do. While I could have started a new LJ, I didn't really want to. I liked the idea of a fresh start in a new place. I liked that DW focuses on those who create things (though you can really have it for whatever you want). I liked the format since I was used to LJ. I liked the idea of meeting totally different people, less spam, less judgment. So I closed my blogspot account and came here.
