And what a week it has been. Lets just say that I’m not entirely ready for the weekend because Saturday is going to be my big day to push to get the rest of my room organized and unpacked.
It might seem a bit odd that I haven’t finished doing that since I moved several weeks ago, but I’ve been picking up every extra shift I could at work the last few months and it looks like next month is going to be about the same.
It makes finding time to write extremely difficult, especially when I have so many different things I need to do. But I do plan on setting aside some time tomorrow to rewrite a short story I wrote several years back that has stuck in my mind. And while I’m pretty sure the finished product will not resemble the original lines I wrote, the spark that I see when I read those words will be there.
This particular story was a result of word prompts I did every day one October before NaNoWriMo. It was a practice I really enjoyed and have missed doing since. In fact, aside from trying to do a free-write journalish bit everyday, I will start doing word prompts again. And if you so feel the desire, leave a comment with a word you think would be good for me to try on for size.
