Last week was rather craptastic for getting any writing done. Between re-acclimating to work after being sick for a week, starting my docent classes again, getting into arguments on Twitter, and basically rearranging the furniture layout of the entire house, there was not a lot of time to be really productive. Oops.
I DID get SOME writing done, though (more below), and I’m trying to keep up the optimism instead of allowing my normal predictions of doom, gloom, and eternal failure to bog me down. So far, seeing how much I’m doing helps a lot, so hurray for blogging!
Progress report: Two chapters transcribed and edited, and a prologue is in the works for the sake of clarity and remembering my own damn mythology.
Short term goals: Transcribe current draft from spiral notebook before all my writing becomes illegible.
(Very) Long term goals: Complete a draft.
The Night Palace
