OTF: On Literal S&M

The Sleeping GiantI feel tortured.

And torturous, because who but myself do I have to blame for not writing in over a month? Sure, you could blame the Fates (and I do, as regular readers know all too well). Yes, they played their role, but you can’t control what the Fates bring you. However you can control what you do with it afterward.

I want some solid time to work on my novel. While we’re at it, I’d also like an island in the Caribbean, season’s tickets to the Bruins, and a vineyard in California (or at least an unlimited pass to the tasting room and panoramic-view deck).

I want all this, but it’s not going to happen anytime soon. What I need to do is just decide that in order to get this novel done, I’m going to need to steal time wherever I can. Maybe 10 minutes here, 100 words there, skip a bit of sleep or push myself that extra little bit to get something down on the page.

100 words. That’s my goal for today.

***UPDATE***

Got 41 solid minutes in. Not really writing, but editing/rewriting over a fairly large area so hard to pinpoint exact words. But over 100, fer sure. I win! ~gs
