The Squiggly Face of Doom

Pfft forget the word count and journal entry update. Why? Because there’s nothing to update you on! I even forgot to post yesterday! Where’s my little brain?!

It’s getting tougher and tougher to sit down and write this story. I thought my typing skills would improve over time but sadly it’s the exact opposite- I’m typing slower and more clumsily than ever before. I may look like a typist but really I only use 2 fingers on each hand with a smattering of hunting and pecking. It’s pretty shameful.

Some people walk around with a scowl, others a frown and a few lucky ones a smile. I happen to be blessed with a squiggly face of perpetual doom, confusion and overall absent-mindedness. This can work well when I’m sitting in a coffee shop at my computer- I can pull it off to be interpreted as being deep in contemplation and absorbed in my creativity It’s not so easy to explain when I’m dealing with people. I’m sure they’re itching to ask if I have indigestion.

Does anyone else have the unfortunate dichotomy of excitement when they think about their story and anticipate working on it but when it comes to sitting down to write all they want to do is be somewhere else? It’s very frustrating. Frank is not helping me at all with his story and that’s making me very frustrated. All he does is drink. Hasn’t his liver revolted by now?

As of today, my schedule is about to become quite full again. Maybe with the time limitations I have each day I’ll finally be able to get moving on this story. Like the saying goes, if you want something done give it to a busy person. It’s true. I can’t wait to be flying through my story soon! I’m so excited to find out what’s going to happen.
