I’ve had a really busy past few days… well, actually, the entire week has been hectic, hence no post on Friday. There are a few things I wanted to mention though.
First up, I received the Liebster blog award from Amanda, and then Lizzy (and Constance, because it’s her blog too). It made me realise that I don’t seem to follow too many small blogs, so I’m still coming up with a list of recipients to pass the award on to. Check back on Wednesday, because hopefully I’ll have it all done by then.
Being halfway to the mid-semester break at university, last week was filled with exams and assignment due dates. But, I sat my last exam today, and I’ve submitted my assignment, so I’m assignment-free! (At least until next week when I have another exam). My writing has really suffered partially because of all the assignments, but also because I seem to have entered the writing stage where the idea isn’t new and shiny anymore, and it’s actually work now. I participated in another ‘5,000 words in 5 days’ marathon last week, and failed dismally at it. It was a struggle each day.
Lastly, I’ve come up with a brand new story idea! I came up with it on Thursday, and I’ve already written a bit of a brief outline for it. I won’t give too much away (mostly because I’m still exploring the idea), but it’s military fiction, and will probably be a novella or really large short story. I’m calling it 73 MINUTES, a title which I think will stick.
I need your help, guys! For the comments, what do you do when the excitement of your story wears off? I really want to finish the story, but at the same time I want to re-write my previous WIP. Let me know in the comments!
