Tomorrow is the last day of April and the bookkeeping says I’ve done a thing, dice rolled and scores settled. I finished a draft that’s been hanging open for months. I donated time and detailed critiques to our local writers’ org. I wrote things about writing things. I’m finally caught up with NaPoWriMo drafts. I’m nearly two chunky chapters into the project I originally planned most of my focus around.
My focus has wandered this month but I made my original 15k goal and then looked to my cabin’s combined goal. Now I’m not maybe 1k shy and edging closer with every word.
My point is, sometimes you have to improvise. Life gets in the way and you may not be able to devote the time or energy you wanted into the project that needs it most. But it’s infinitely better to keep writing or just do creative stuff rather than waiting around for the right time.
I will still be working on “Lost Constellations” next month but I’m better for keeping my creative energy up and working on other projects.
