Monday Status Update – Week 44

Autumn Status UpdateWeek 44 and its time to get back to writing. I’ve been tied up with a graphics project this past week and I’ve gotten very little done on my writing projects. The project involved magazine mock-ups. Although I think it was a rather creative project, it has taken time from my production here.

But at this point, the second collection of limericks as fifty percent completed. I’ve for fifty down, fifty to go. I’m hoping, barring any other shiny distractions, that I can actually get something completed in a week or two.

The past two Fridays have had there Limericks Round-up posted and back-dated so that it appears as though these posts went out as scheduled. And I hate having to do that, but until I get myself back on track…

I don’t really know where this procrastination is coming from. But I think that I’ve had this with many new endeavors. I like the creative ‘high’ that I get from getting through the rough drafts, but then I don’t get the same endorphin rush from the editing phase needed to create a final draft for publication. And I really don’t know why that is.

I’m starting to see a pattern here, are you? Let us open up to the book of Lamentations. But, in the meantime here is a sample of that graphics project I mentioned, the rest of the are posted on my Pinterest page under Sexy Magazine Mock-Ups:

Monday Status Update – Week 41

Autumn Status UpdateWeek 41 and I’m still working at getting the poem books uploaded to smashwords. I need to craft an author bio… who am I? (cue the music to Les Miserables). I also wonder if I should launch the collection at one time. The content that I’m creating now, for the Limerick book, will be the same as the content for the others. So, with some time on my hands this week, can I possibly tear myself away from binge watching House on NetFlix?

So, as the limericks continue through the twitter posts, I’ll be recapping most of them here on Fridays. That seems to be a good schedule to work by for now.

I also posted another of the ‘Things I Find Sexy’ essay… or fictionalized opinion, or vignette. These brief bursts of creative expression will hopefully help me to refine my technique. I think of them as the rough sketches that I used to do while learning to draw. They are the ‘doodles in the margin’ the mindless pencil pushing to see what turns up.

But I hope to be doing more of them. Writing… word counts… the act of doing it. I often feel more like exercising when I have exercise clothes on. I guess it’s that sort of a mental trick. If I stop writing, I’ll stop writing… and then I wont be likely to write. Sounds strange but I think there is a point in there somewhere.

But lets look forward to the week ahead and plan!
