Why, oh why did I choose today to attempt to go back to writing? Was I not aware that it is the week leading up to Christmas? Lord knows all great shows come out during the run up to Christmas! Between movies, marathons and Christmas specials it feels like the whole TV end of the world is completely against me writing!
Not only is there a Friends AND Catfish ‘the most shocking moments’ marathon on, but we also have a Christmas movie channel. It physically hurts thinking that I need to turn the TV off and turn to a blank document and try to make sense of how the hell I’m going to start this bloody novel!
This always happens. I am positive for weeks beforehand that I know what I want to write about, how to start it and where I’m going with it. Then the day like today comes and I find myself staring at my laptop screen, willing my fingers to type… anything… ANYTHING AT ALL!
Though there is one positive about starting to write today, and that is that tomorrow I won’t be staring at a blank screen anymore, I will be picking up where I left off and finally back on the writing path and walking- slowly but surely- to my destination- finished novel!!
I’m not entirely sure where I’m going to start, but I have my idea, so I guess I just have to work from there. This novel is going to be set in Ireland, which is a new thing for me, as I usually try to set them in America. This one is going to be home grown though! Which might actually help because I won’t be focusing on a system I don’t know that well.
Well I’ll keep my Blog updated, and we’ll see where this novel goes! Hopefully I’ll do well enough with it, but at the end of the day it is just a first draft! Enjoy your day people!
