Amidst all the sewing – and there has been a lot of sewing – I’ve fallen into a great routine to make time for writing as well! Usually, I break from my project – whether writing or sewing – I will do something “relaxing”: browsing Facebook, Star Wars the Old Republic, or snacking while watching more Criminal Minds. When I try to get back to work, the momentum has been lost.
This week, however, I mixed it up. I wake up wanting to get sewing right away – my deadline is right around the corner and I am the opposite of a procrastinator when it comes to deadlines – but sewing right after waking usually doesn’t work out so well for me. Thus, with my morning cup of coffee, I have been taken 30 minutes to write. Then I sew. After a few hours – usually around lunch time – I’m ready for some noms and a break, but instead of a quick break, I have been giving myself an hour to eat and write. Whenever I take a break from sewing, I write, and then I take a break from writing to sew.
Switching creative form to another has helped keep my momentum, determination and inspiration going and I’ve been able to write a few thousands words every day! This, of course, spurs me on to MORE WORDS!
I am almost to the end of Act II, with just a coronation scene left *secrets!* I’m so excited to be introducing lots of fun things in Act III, including Pondeah, Solma – the river town Marjolee (Marja-who? *secrets*) – and perhaps a little moment at Rivercliff Abbey. Plus, there will be a glimpse of the main character of the next and final book, “The Blessed”. But you’ll have to guess who it will be when you read it for yourself!
