One day I was happily writing and the next day I was drowning in a sea of my own suckiness. As Fitzwilliam Darcy would say: I shall conquer this; I shall!
I did write a lot, but nothing good. I guess there are no guarantees that just because you do write something down that doesn’t mean it’s not going to stink up the place.
In other news, something else was distracting me. Email me at my gmail addy and I will tell you what it was. You won’t be disappointed.
Also, here is my new Downton print that I have been threatening folks with.
I haven’t decided if I want to sell them yet. I mean, I DO NOT fancy getting jacked by a British Lord. As I said in another post, I was very careful to only list real places (there is a town called Downton in the Midlands, I believe) and Lord Fellows did use real places in his screenplay. However, there is that sticky wicket called “the spirit of things”. I can’t very well sell them without, in some way, alluding to Downton Abbey. So you see what I am up against. However, that doesn’t keep me from giving it away. More on that later, duckies.
So now it is Monday and I have just finished “Art Week” (squeaked by on a hair because I had to put one print in the mail today… a P&P print winging its lucky self to Switzerland… yes, I am jealous of a print!)
I have great hopes for “Writing Week” (as in Star Trek Writing Week) because beginning on Thursday I have five days full of peace and quiet… no work, no commitments. Daughter is not coming home (again… she, apparently, prefers the boyfriend’s family: “I have such a good time there and they need me to make the yams,” she says) Hmph!
Starting any minute, I am going to write and write and write some more. I did not feel that guilt/neglectful feeling of previous weeks and months last week simply because I had a goal in mind. I hope that it carries over. I think this is going to work!
Not as in part 2 of the same story. As in Part 2 of the same topic.
I think about Spuhura, too, but not to any effect.
Author’s note: Reminder: This story is the second part of a Trilogy of three separate stories. I am writing them concurrently, but you can read them out of order. And yes, I know it’s not the story that anyone wants, but at least it is a story. 🙂
Parts 1-3: HERE if you need to remind yourself where I left off.
Author’s Notes: Apparently, this is not going to be a two part story. If you don’t remember what Part 1 of this story was about, you can read it here, keeping in mind that this is the third story in my ST:TOS “A Brief Encounter” trilogy. (“Between Logic and Longing” being the second story). Obviously, I am not telling them in order… I guess I am channeling C.S. Forester.
Of course, you may choose not to read it at all. Possibly you are angry with me because I have not updated Heart’s Guardian in a while. But believe me, I am working on it, but telling time-displacement stories require A LOT of pre-planning, and I have hit a wall as to how I need to proceed. Rest assured I am working on it: it has not been abandoned.
BTW: Mistakes are mine and I still can’t convince Paramount to sell me the rights, so their characters are theirs and I do not profit from them. So, we continue…
