Summer's Over...Now What?
As summer draws to a close, I've had several friends tell me how glad they are that their kids are going back to school....more writing time.
I smile politely.
A long time ago, on this blog, I discussed my fall depression. It's very hard on me. The worst time of year. I have a hard time writing while I'm so low.
I usually write like a fiend in the summer. I like late nights. I leave the front door open and the cool air washes in. It's normally a perfect environment for writing. But this summer I didn't write at all. I was sick with chest pains through June, then the toothache from hell in July and early August. I think I got about two chapters done and I'm waaaaayyyyy behind schedule.
I had planned to enter the GH again this year, but neither manuscript I wanted to put in it is ready. One is halfway and the other is only 3 chapters.
I am going to have to conquer my fall depression and write like hell through September and October if I want to get in the GH this year. It's a goal. I usually do well under pressure. A CP and I both used to send out partials and then write like fiends to get the ms done. I don't think either of us does that any more. Me because of carpal tunnel that won't allow me to type like I once did. I'm not sure why she doesn't do it any more.
If I want to get in the GH, I've got to get off here and get busy.
Anyone else have any goals they are determined to meet?
