Words on the page

This last week has been pretty horrendous for my writing. I haven’t touched the novella in six days now, and am not functioning quite well enough yet to trust myself with it – I find at this stage in the game, I don’t want to invest time that is only going to result in more work to tidy up than not. However, since the kids have stopped puking all over me, it is well and truly time to get some words on the page.

Yesterday I booted up Omm and started typing. It was easy in some ways, because I had a place to start. This months writing challenge has a set first lineEdwin spotted them the moment he stepped off the train – what came after however, is something I’d been mulling over since May 1st.

In the end, I threw some words out there and ended up rehashing some thoughts I’d had for another story a few months ago. I may well change the object in question, but the essential thing was that it gave me a place to start from. The story is a little bizarre so far,  but you know what? I like it. I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes.

In other news, I read a great post today over at the Rogue Blades Entertainment blog called Why Fantasy Speaks. I feel the same way, but I think it’s put better than I could.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

  1. Hey, glad to hear you have started on the challenge! I think I’d better but down my ideas this weekend or I am going to run out of editing time.

  2. I had a brainstorming session about the challenge prompt but didn’t come up with anything that really sparked with me. 😦 I am almost finished the last short story I started in April and then I’ll be starting with Edwin and the train. Maybe some freewriting will give me something.

    I’m glad the girls have stopped puking on you and you’ve been able to dive into a world of your own making. xx
