I'm prone to distraction. My mind gets caught up on something and it freezes me up. Often, this is a good thing. The distraction is something writing related, figuring out a plot point or something a character needs to do. I write it down and I can get back to doing whatever it was I was doing.
However, sometimes there are distractions that keep me from writing.
And I am in the middle of one right now.
You see, I'm getting married a week from Saturday. And the planning is taking up a lot of time. So I'm sitting at just over 39,000 words in my manuscript and I've frozen up a bit. Most of what I have written this week has been crap.
And a lot of what I've blogged on here the last few weeks. (Go ahead, say it... You're writing crap now, Dave? How is that different from anything else you've done on DSD?)
I'm trying to keep my routine. Go to the gym, then write, then lunch, but it's not working. I've spent too much time on the phone. Too much running around.
I'm excited to get married, and I know in 3 weeks, the writing will really pick up again.
But for right now, I'm a little frozen.
So after tomorrow, I'm gonna be off from the blog for two weeks. Joelle will be handling Thursday duties for me.
