This was a productive week, but not in the way I’d hoped. We had a house inspection on Friday and spent most of the week preparing.
The house is now much clearer, but it hasn’t helped my writing. :-)
Although I caught up on the short story on Saturday and Sunday, I didn’t quite meet my general writing goal — only five days this week.
The short story is worrying me. I’m still making progress on it, but I feel like everything I change introduces something else that needs editing to fit.
I can probably finish a third draft if I put in five or six evenings this week; but for all I know, it would take another three weeks for it to feel polished.
More importantly, I’m worrying about whether I actually want to do that. I fear spending time to get writing done will eat into my sleep, and I’ll end up collapsing on the weekend.
On the other hand, the cleaning didn’t cause that this week. If I make a point of working on the story as soon as I get off work, I should be able to make progress without pushing anything else too far out of the way.
I suppose that’s what I’m planning for this week.
Good luck and happy writing!
