Okay, sometimes you need to say these things out loud. Now that classes are wrapped up and I no longer have council work, it's time to get back to writing. This summer, I need to write.
(Picture me standing up, holding my right hand up in the Scouting Pledge manner)
To that end, I will get into work early so I can take a full hour lunch, over which I shall write more than just the blog posts. When I come home, I will sit at the table away from the TV and write. I will also exercise regularly, which will help with the focus and feeling better. I will watch less TV in a mindless manner and be more choosy about my time. I will spend more time doing "writerly" things instead (submitting, reading, research, writing exercises, and, you know, the actual writing, rewriting and editing).
To help with this, as you can see under WIPS & WHIPS, I've cleared out the old data and put the two books I will be working on (until one of them takes off to be completed first). The titles are working titles only.
I make this pledge in the open in the hopes that my deeply seated emotions of fear of disappointment and shame will now help drive me toward my goals.
