Woke up this morning to - snow! *dances* I was sad to have missed our first snowfall, while we were in Texas, but this one has a better chance of sticking around for a bit. As it's still going... I have hopes of getting a considerable amount today. Yay!
And the writing? Is still moving forward. ^.^
I've found that listening to music helps a lot. And it helps more if I put use a headset, instead of just listening to it on the CD player in the background. Doesn't seem to matter whether either the subject or mood of the music fits what I'm trying to write, or even whether or not it has words (which I'd have thought would be really distracting, but... *shrug*). Heheh, I guess it seems to be effective in drowning out the dozen extraneous thoughts to allow me to focus on just one
. Plus, when I run into a momentary blank spot and am trying to decide on the next words to get things rolling again, it fills in just enough to keep me from getting bored with my own brain, and wandering off to unrelated thoughts. And I seem to write faster if I can't hear myself type. Which is stupid, but hey, whatever works. (Hmm. Maybe I have more ADD tendencies than I'd previously thought? Or... something. General weirdness, maybe. *g*)
Also, have discovered that yes, I really should just write those random, stupid, pointless, out of context scenes that I feel like writing, instead of forcing myself to flail randomly at the next part of the Main Story. Because yes, sometimes it leads to The Most Stupid Conversation Ever, which is humiliating both for me and the poor characters involved. But other times... it leads to Important Realizations, and a lot more fun than I expected. And that's cool. ^.^
So. I am now -
Over. Half. Way. Yes!
:D :D :D
Time for a reading break. *curls up with Wayfarer
