88. Lazy Sunday

Sunday, July 03, 2005

Mood: calm
Music: Anna Nalick

I'm feeling really lazy this weekend. Yes, its the holiday weekend, so I guess a little bit of laziness is okay. I'm really not a particularly big fan of the beginning of July either for personal reasons, so most years I just go through those first days of July and wait for it to hit the 5th. My mood can fluctuate up and down during those days, and usually I don't get much done at all. This no year is no different. I really haven't written much since Friday. I know that will change tonight because Queer as Folk is on, and I also have to put together something for Forbidden Fruit.

Last night, I was pondering this other story I've been playing with in my head. Something I hope to write and submit to Chippewa for their Vamprotica anthology. I have a pretty solid idea in my head. I just need to get to it and get writing. Crash into me is still a bit stalled, but I'm hoping to pick that up soon too.

I've heard differing opinions on whether or not writer's should stick on one project until it is done before starting something new. I always feel guilty when I decide to start something new when there is something else I've been currently working on. Sometimes things just get stalled, and if you sit there waiting for it to get unstalled then you'll develop some kind of writer's block. Plus, I don't just write fiction. So in my head I'm usually working on two things anyway. One nonfiction and the other fiction. Sometimes I have thoughts for several stories swirling around my head. It's just a matter of when those stories will find their way out.

My mind is feeling a bit lazy today to, so I'm going to end this here. Have a Happy Sunday everyone!

I usually stick with one thing in thinking it will work itself out eventually if I keep at it, but I can skip around to different ideas at times, too. So I guess I'm not very consistent. :)

I usually concentrate on one project, unless I'm really blocked, then I'll veer off to another story just to spark those creative juices.

Enjoy your lazy time, Gina. Happy fourth!
