But not without good news!
I know my plan was to post on every Sunday, but yesterday, I got a little bit distracted.
I played my first ever videogame all the way through! (It was only four hours long and my brother was helping me with the puzzles, but still… it was kind of a nerd-complishment for me.)
In case anyone is wondering, the game was called To the Moon, and it was actually more of a visual novel. I loved every second of it. The game told a really compelling story in way that only a videogame can. The added element of interaction really brought what was a sweet, but also heart-wrenching story, to new levels.
But, on to the point of this blog: Writing progress.
Last week, I… WROTE THREE CHAPTERS! That’s huge for me! So often, I don’t have time to write, or I just feel creatively drained. But that was not true last week. Three chapters, done. And I’m actually excited to write more. It doesn’t feel like something to check off my to-do list; it feels like something I WANT to do.
It’s been a long while since I’ve felt that way about writing. As much as I adore it, more often than not, the last several years, it’s felt like something that just needed to get done. It was such a relief to really have fun with it again.
And, not going to lie, I felt a little maniacal at one point. You know all those memes about authors putting their characters through ridiculous trials…. Mwahahaha… that was me.
So yes, this past week was a good one: I tried a new hobby and made progress (and rekindled some love) in an old one.
Lots of love, all!
