Luckily, I have been able to get that one under control. But I have noticed this trend in other areas of my life. Writing is not an exception. I hadn't written anything at all last week. Then Sunday rolls around. I woke up at 5:30 in the morning with a fight scene, that one I have been too intimidated to write, running through my head. I couldn't let it go, so I started typing away. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out too! I pretty much wrote all day yesterday. With a total of 7,750 words, more or less. Great for my writing goal, but major fail in terms of moderation.
I also woke up this morning with conversations going on in my head. I have a notebook by my bed, but I never seem to use it. If I write just little points about what I was seeing I would lose a lot of it. So, I got out of bed and started typing away at the computer. I was so happy with my 1,000 words this morning, but now I'm ready for a nap. Only problem, which always seems to be so inconvenient, is that I have to work 'till 5.
Another thing that I have been thinking about, because my CP Heather Hildenbrand mentioned it today on her blog, is the stats for blog traffic. I was amazed at how much my stats grew when I got my cover and revamped my blog. The key to my blog traffic has been to get yo cover, pimp yo blog (in the melody of Antoine Dodson's "Hide yo kids, Hide yo wife"-- see video below if you are not laughing right now).
So, here's a shout out to all of you who have supported me thus far by reading my blog, giving me feedback, and being part of my little writer world.
