Captain’s Log, Stardate 03.30.2005
I printed off almost all of my ACFW Noble Theme Contest entry. I forgot until today that the deadline is tomorrow. I’ll finish it tonight and get it in the mail tomorrow afternoon.
Wrote a kickin’ fight scene yesterday, helped by my “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” DVD. Hehe. I love the fight scenes--both watching and writing them. Maybe Chicklit/suspense/action is the right place for me.
I’m still revising the manuscript, almost done. When I’ve gotten to the point where I haven’t finished writing, I’ll send it to be critiqued while I finish the last few chapters. Efficient use of my time, yes?
I’ve been writing down all my tips and tricks for writing while working full time. I’d love to do a workshop on the subject someday. I think there would be lots of writers who would want to pick up ideas on how to juggle the Dreaded Day Job.
I finally knuckled down and cleaned up my office (
Actually, having the candle nearby is quite nice. I’m glad I finally cleared the crap from my desk. The lack of clutter allows me to feel better about writing--I’m not distracted by the mess and guilty over cleaning. It was as if the stuff all around me was actually making my brain feel cluttered, too, just by being there.
Diet: Ugh, I feel like a pig. I have been trying to go no starch for a few days and it’s impossible. I’m okay for lunch, usually, but once I’m home I pig out on veggie chips. Which are low fat, but still. I feel like Bridget Jones with this obsession with calories. Am I that neurotic? Don’t answer that.
