Whatnot Wednesdays #2

Info dumps on the life of an aspiring writer. 


Do you ever sit down to write, and realize that you don't want to?  Well today, I have been experiencing the exact OPPOSITE. 

I want to write and create, but I don't want to sit down at my computer.  I want to move.  I want to do things.  I want to go on an adventure.  A real one. 

I wonder if I can run on a treadmill and write at the same time....





Well, after careful consideration, I decided that strapping my laptop to the front of my treadmill is not the best idea.

So here I am.  Sitting at my desk.  And bouncing my leg hard enough it just might fall off.

I think that part of the reason I'm having such a hard time actually DOING the writing, is that I have recently fallen victim to the self-aware-story-syndrome.  (Basically my story has decided to deviate from the planned path and do its own thing).

So what might happen is that I won't end up with 12 chapters like my outline suggests.  I might have 13.  Or even 15.

And there's nothing wrong with that--except for the fact that I wanted this story to be 12 chapters.  The reason being is that I had carefully defined what needed to happen for each chapter.  But SURPRISE! my characters have more story to tell than I originally planned.

Is it just me, or is this starting to sound like the complaints of a genius procrastinator?

Oh would you look at that. They exist.


Yep. I'm procrastinating. 

Happy New Year's Eve!!!

God bless,
