It took me almost a whole week to get through a scene. ☹
Not normally a big deal, but I went ahead and tortured myself with a looming deadline (and it is looming), so that’s only mildly terrifying. I’m pretty good about getting through my WIPs quickly, but I got *so* stuck on this scene. The kicker? It was the bow-chick-a-wow-wow scene which are usually kind of easy. In fact, they’re pretty fricking fun! But this one wasn’t coming to me, and I think it’s because I was putting too much pressure on the moment. On getting it perfect and making sure I checked every box to make it the perfect reunion. In other words: I cockblocked myself ☹
Glad to say I got past it. I’m only *slightly* behind but I’m sure I’ll catch back up because I doubt I’d write this post without FULL CONFIDENCE I’ll have BTY done in time to make the November 16th release date. There are a few other scenes that I know I’ll have to rework heavily, but other than that, I’m happy with it. Of course, I say that today, having just gotten passed a huge hurdle, but I hope to keep the good vibes/news flowing.
Non-writing wise, life isn’t too bad. Batman and I are going to Sea World and Universal Studios for my birthday in two weeks. It was supposed to be a trip to Colorado Springs…but someone got herself unemployed for three months and has very little money. So… FL vacation hot-spots it is!
Also, we had a garage sale Saturday and made fifty bucks which is AWESOME because people took crap I didn’t want and gave me money that I’m putting towards a new wand in Diagon Alley. Happy birthday to me 😊
How did you spend your weekend? Something fun I hope 🙂 Ever been to SeaWorld? Or Universal Studios? How about FL? TELL ME YOU’VE AT LEAST BEEN TO FLORIDA.
