Potato patch 2008

It’s Good Friday, but to me, it is just Friday. And it isn’t Good. More bad.

 

I am sitting here, realising that the last week has been and gone and I have done……zilch. As far as writing is concerned any way.

 

This week I have: Been accused of being ‘narky’, met a new person, discussed APD with numerous people (anyone who would listen!), noticed my Potatoes aren’t growing, noticed that my Tomato Plants are!

 

I have 19 Tomato plants. Tomorrow, I will have to transfer them to the pots I bought today. What am I going to do with 19 Tomato plants? My son said ‘that will be a lot of ketchup!’. He is right!

 

And who knows, in the next 7 days, I may write something worthy. I do miss it. And I think the lack of writing is what has made me ‘narky’. Him indoors said that when we go on holiday that I must take my writing with me. Too right!

 

Here is to a more fruitful 7 days.

 

Friday

 

And it is Friday again.

 

Today is also the last day of the school term, and my little angel will have 2 weeks off! EEK! I’m sure I will survive somehow.

 

Now, I haven’t been as productive as I would have liked (do you see a pattern emerging?), and I know that the next two weeks I won’t get as much done as I might like. This whole unproductive malarkey is making me very miserable. I feel like a hamster on a wheel, hammering away and going no where.

So I concluded that I really am doing too much. From now, I will only have 3 projects on the go. The novel, a short story, and an article. Let’s see if that will help improve my output.

 

Something needs to change, that is for sure. I am going to be re-visiting ‘The Positively Productive Writer’ and I will read it more slowly this time, whilst bulleting steps I need to take. I hope it works.

 

How is your writing coming along?
