Monday Mayhem – Stuck in the muck

I’m stuck. Ish. Not really stuck, but in a weird headspace these days. Too much time on my hands. And crap…Now I have Styx stuck in there too.

I’m not used to this much freedom, and frankly, my procrastination skills have reached almost Aussie proportions. I am trying to keep to a schedule in my day-to-day routines, but sit seems like somewhere around noon I get distract….

Hey, did you meet my new T-Rex, Rover?

Yep. Too much time on my hands. And a bit of a pity party going on. But the problem with pity parties is that only one guest ever sticks around. The pitiful one.

But this week will be different. This week, I’m getting un-stuck!

This week, I am buckling down. I’m going to spew ALL THE WORDS, edit ALL THE WORDS, make ALL THE WORDS flee in terror when they see this Writersaurus Wrecks coming!

How am I going to get unstuck? I’m going to plow through procrastination!

Therefore, I need goals. I need goals, and I need you to hold me accountable. So here they are. Ready?

1)  First of all, I will finish first pass edits on chapters 7-18 of DOUBLE PLAY so they are ready for Jewels. This also includes actually writing scenes for the spots where I wrote {Big fight scene here} because I was feeling non-confrontational that day.

2) Add at least 7500 more words to THE FIX UP (current WIP). This is going to be a fun series. Sort of a Fixer Upper meets It’s Complicated thing. I hope it plays out well.

3) Read through and take notes on major revision points on SUPERSTAR. This one is more of a Nashville meets A Star is Born thing with a juicy family dynamic and intergenerational storylines.

So, I’m counting on you guys to hold my feet to the fire next week. I’m going to meet these goals. I’m not even going to give an ‘If I don’t…’ scenario.

While I’m working on that, what do you hope to achieve this week? Ready? Set? Goal!

  1. I have no doubt that you will finish all your goals. I think THE FIX UP is an awesome idea. Much good luck with that.

  2. Frankly, I think you deserve some downtown after the millions of words you’ve already written. But then, my middle name is Procrastination, so…probably best you don’t listen to me. I’m also thinking how much better and more peaceful life would be if you could really deal with disputes with {big fight scene here.} Boom. Done. The WIPs sound great. As long as the Nashville-esque one has a Deacon in it, count me in!

  3. Working during the day is a huge problem, I wish I could write all day, alas. Funny you mentioned the FIX UP. I have an outline for exactly the same idea haha. Well, I guess I can cross that off my list hahaha.

    1. Ha! Isn’t it funny how that happens? I have a novella that is the exact same basic components of Tamara Morgan’s Penelope Blue series. I was about to shop it when the first book came out. I have it stashed in a folder and perhaps one day I will rework it from another angle. See? Nothing gets crossed off!

  4. I know you’re gonna rock it, Writersaurus Wrecks! You’re off to a roaring start in all the stories I’ve read, so just keep up the fantastic work! As for me, I plan on securing an editor this week and planning for the big release of my first ever novel, baby! Woot-woot! 🙂

  5. Thanks! Mine is planned for G rated, Hallmark”ish” so I think yours will be more…R rated hahaha
