Winter’s arrived in the UK – anyone else feel like hibernating?
Goals: Finish writing the first draft of one incomplete novel (Project RC).
My instincts have been telling me to let this project lie dormant for a while. As much as I “get” Steven Pressfield’s theory of Resistance, there comes a point when Resistance is there for a reason.
Another theory is the Pareto Principle, or the 80/20 rule, and right now I’ve put 80% of my writing time into Project RC and got about 20% of a usable story. I already have a Day Job for when I want to work hard. I don’t need to turn my writing into a chore.
Project RC goes into a deep sleep. I’ll trust my instincts and wait for the project to rise up and clamour for attention, in its own sweet time.
In the meantime, I’ll kick back and have some fun. I’ve just finished a silly steampunk short story, I have another in the pipeline, and I’m setting up the framework for a new pen-name.
Like I said last time, There Is No Pressure.
Updates: Every Wednesday and Sunday until the challenge is over, as per the Rules.
