Book 2 - Nothing

It's been almost a week since I finished the first draft of Book 2. I had plans to finish the short story I was working on and start planning Book 3. But I have done neither. I haven't done anything but read and watch tv.

But I worked hard to get that first draft done so I think having a week 'off' from writing is ok. As long as it doesn't turn into another week. Then another and before you know it, I haven't wrote a word for weeks. I always find it harder to get back into writing after a break so I will get back into it this week and if I don't, I will be forced to kick myself up the arse.


  1. Congratulations on finishing your first draft! Good for you for taking a break. I sometimes drive myself too hard and don't allow a break -- whereupon I produce dreck.

    I'm sure when you're feeling refreshed, you'll get motivated to write!

  2. Hee hee, this is why you have blog buddies - to give you a gentle nudge in the right direction now and again! Hope you enjoy your time off first though!

  3. Dianne - I think we're so determined to get everything down that we forget about giving ourselves a break but we do need time away sometimes.

    Kyra - very good point about blog buddies. I give everyone permission to give me an ungentle nudge if I park myself in front of the tv any longer!
