Writing, Family and More
I worked some more on Jacoby Figurine today. I hadn’t really touched it in the last two days and felt like I was letting it slip out of my hands. I wasn’t in the mood. I was lazy. I didn’t have writer’s block. So when I started work today, I told myself I would make sure and get some more written tonight.
And then that event happened down in Connecticut and threw a wrench in the works. If I wasn’t in the mood to write for the last few days, I certainly wasn’t in the mood after hearing what happened. At the same time, although that circumstance saddens me greatly, the fact is that there is nothing I could have done about it. So keeping my own life moving onward seems like an appropriate thing.
And so, I worked some more on Jacoby Figurine today. I didn’t make a huge amount of headway – maybe a little more than two pages – but I did make some. I’m getting deeper into a set of new scenes for the story to help flesh out the main characters some more and to give some depth to the villain. And just to make sure I do it well, I am taking my time with it and crafting out what I want to say rather than just letting the words pour out of me like they so often do.
I think that’s all I’ve got tonight. I’ve already tucked in my kids for the night, given them each an extra amount of attention and love for the night and now I might tune in to something on television. Not the news mind you. I am going to stay away from that for a few days. Something that I can hopefully enjoy.
Here’s a candle for those who lost someone today.
