Whoops. #WriteFriday was yesterday. And I didn’t do any writing!
I ended up going to see Tomorrowland with a friend. We’ve been wanting to go and see it for weeks. Unfortunately, for some reason it’s only playing in the afternoons now. Luckily we were both off, so we were able to see it before it’s gone from the theater.
Of course, once that was over, we ended up hanging out for the rest of the day, leaving me exactly zero time for writing. Well, there was a bit of time I could have written something. But I used that to read. You see, I’m heading to a conference next weekend, and I had a whole list of books I wanted to read before then. At this point, it looks like I’ll only be finishing one or two more before I get there (which is a few less than planned). And of course, I want to keep reading. The book I’m in the middle of is Octavia E. Butler’s Fledgling, which is one of the first super good books I’ve read in a long while. And I really want to say “screw it” for today and just keep reading.
But rather than do that, I decided to compromise a bit. I printed out the notes for my StoryNexus game and read them over. It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve done any work on the actual game, so I thought it was high time to reacquaint myself with the project. And I’m really glad I did! I now have a bit of a clearer idea of what I still need to develop (for the background, anyway), and just in general where I’d like to go with it. Hopefully this will help me get some more work done on it (once I’m finished reading my book, of course).
As a side note, there’s a very good chance #WriteFriday will not be happening next Friday. I’m heading to a conference and may be the one driving, which will leave very little time to write. I’ll deal with that next weekend though. And even if I don’t write on Friday, at least the weekend will be full of writing related activities!
