I’m at that point where my plot is full of holes. I have the beginning. I know, of course, where they will end up. And I have about four scenes in the middle. I know what begins to bring them together. But how they get from where they are to where they need to go? THAT part right there is giving me some trouble.
Yesterday was kind of a mess. Work was UTTERLY insane, just one thing after another after another. There’s still more snow. One of the cars was stuck in the driveway. Just…Murphy’s Law seemed to be in full effect yesterday and I didn’t even spare my boys a thought. And I feel sort of bereft about it.
But today is a new day. Today there is no new snow falling and the forecast says there shouldn’t be any sneak attack snow. I’m hoping. I need to refocus and regroup. I have much to write. There are the flash fics for March demanding my attention. And the new boys calling my name. I’m working on an easy pattern for a scarf that should allow for my mind to wander and really plot without messing anything up. And my sister and I are talking about taking a weekend away, not going far, but just getting away and doing nothing and relaxing. It’s something we both need, and a change of scenery might do me some good. As long as the hotel has wifi, I’m good. 🙂
At any rate, I definitely have the winter blahs. It’s not something that usually happens to me. Because, let’s face it, where I live winter is a given. And there’s nothing that can be done to stop the weather. It is what it is. Usually, I take it in stride and deal with it, and don’t complain too much. But it’s been way colder than normal for longer than normal, and the snow keeps happening, and it’s depressing. I’m ready for spring. I’m ready to be warm again.
But March is just around the corner, and it is my very favorite month. The snow won’t completely end, but it’ll warm up some and it’s the beginning of spring. With March, we’ll get a change, and that is what I need most of all.
But for now it’s off to the evil day job, and doing that to the best of my abilities before I come home and focus on the joys in my life; writing and reading and yarn. And to hopefully produce something good, something worth your time and my effort.
