Things I worked on this week:
A short poem that I posted earlier in the week. And that's it.
What am I working on?
I've got ideas finally buzzing around in my head again. So right now I'm working on those, as well as fixing my narrative that I turned in a few weeks ago. I'm also working on a short story I hope to turn in to the Moorpark Review. Yeah I know, last minute, but the other one I submitted felt a bit... meh, so I'm working on this one to hopefully increase my chances of getting something published. Or not, if my writing skills need to be developed further before I can get to that point.
How do I feel about the process?
I'm feeling pretty good again. Last month was filled with a lot of things that brought up a lot of sadness and dampened my creativity like crazy, but given that and the fact that I feel up to writing again, I'm really pleased. I'm predicting another cloudy month for me in April, but that's a month away. I'm cracking my knuckles (figuratively, since I hate the sound of popping joints) and getting things done as much as possible before that month swings around.
What am I reading now?
The usual: On Writing and The Dream Giver. Got a few more pages in to Les Misérables, but I'm certainly missing the first time I read it in class in high school. The helpful notes my English teacher would give the class during the reading are something I really need, hahaha. At least it's not feeling like that one time I read Gone with the Wind on my own. While I like reading historical fiction and period pieces, the romance in it kinda made me hate reading it. Interesting, but I don't want to read it again, no thanks.
At least Les Mis and Gone with the Wind isn't as long as War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, that's for sure.
