Falling off the Writing Wagon

It’s fall, and speaking of which …you might not have traveled much last year.  Neither did Hubby and I.

This year we made up for it.

Between what needed to be done and what looked like reasonable fun, we became gadabout excursionists over the last few months.  The experiences were enriching, but my writing … suffered.  Deadlines became DOA.  Goals flopped into face -plants.

So I’ve fallen terribly behind schedule, but all we writers can do is continue persevering.  Shoot, one of my distractions this summer was a writers’ conference.  And now with the holidays coming up … well, better late than never, as they say.

They also say a picture is worth a thousand words, so since we’ve got a theme going on:

P.S. It seems like many people I’ve talked with also feel fallen behind on their own projects.  Maybe there’s something in the water….

  1. Your experiences will only aid in your future writing, so I think you will be just fine. I’m glad you made up for last year’s lack of travel. I hope to do that next year, but I’m not holding my breath ’cause things just never seem to work as expected these days.

    • You have a good point – I’m not sure if it’s a blessing or a curse that every time I go somewhere, I make notes of things that might be useful someday in a story. And it sounds like you’re speaking from experience!
