Took a Break From All That Is Writing, And it Was Good

As you may have noticed I haven't really been all that active lately on the writing front.  I finished the first draft of my novel at the end of June and then didn't really know what to do.  I attempted to start editing right away but I didn't think that was a good idea so I moved on to my next project.  I got about 15,000 words into it and lost interest.  What I think I needed was a break, a break from writing, thinking about writing, writing about writing and talking about writing.
Over the past few weeks I haven't been on Twitter much, I think I was somewhat embarrassed about my failure with my story I was working on for NaNoWriMo although I know I have nothing but supportive friends.  I think that the biggest issue however was that after my first draft of "Death By Putts" was finished I just didn't know what to do with myself so I headed off in too many directions and then just stopped everything, but I now have a plan:
(This is what I am holding myself accountable for)

  1. Finish Beta Reading for Steve
  2. Finish Setting Up and Pimping out my G+ account
  3. Work on a Design Idea I have for Threadless
  4. Return to my one a day one liners for My "My Brain Farts Stink" Blog
  5. Catch-up with friends
  6. Re-start editing for "Death By Putts"
This is my plan for the rest of 2011.  I am going to take things a bit slower now.

Thanks for Reading

  1. I suspect you know this already but don't be ashamed of not accomplishing what you expected--as you said, you have very supportive friends. :)

    Sounds like you have a set plan now which should make productivity much more straightforward. Good luck!

    P.S.: Don't avoid Twitter over something so silly. :)
