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.

Nope, haven’t been to Florida. It’s on the to-do list once my kids are tall enough to appreciate Disney World. Plus my husband is a big space fan and would like to go watch a rocket launch sometime. Most of my adventures take place on the west side of the US, California and Vegas and the such. Been to Russia. And the Dominican Republic. But nope, no Florida.
Glad you got past your scene. It’s no fun when it doesn’t flow. I hope you have a fun birthday!
Thank you! And please come visit FL soon! Your kids look old enough to appreciate the awesomeness 🙂
Yay!! And pretty pics – I like that couch! What did I do for the weekend? Past the hospital crap with mom I got my new kindle cord so I am now reading! Bwahahahahahaha! BTW come do my garage sale – I hate doing them so much that last month we just put two boxes of stuff out on the curb labeled “free”. someone took them both and probably resold it all.
I hate garage sales too but Batman insists we have one like, twice a year. *hate them* It’s a bunch of setting up/breaking down and the whole haggling thing gets old quick. PLUS it’s writing time lost. I think that is the biggest travesty.
