I’m torn in my head about whether the words I’ve written today count or not. I’ve re-written a scene I wrote a few weeks ago for ‘Holiday’, but in 1st person, present tense. I think I’ve pretty much decided it’s going to be 1st person now. I just need to decide between present and past. I’ve always had problems writing present in the past, I seemed to always slip into past accidentally – but somehow in this 1,000 word scene (the beginning of a scene anyway) I’ve kept it consistent. Initial reaction from me is I like it. I know there’s a couple of bits in it I don’t like, but for a 1st draft it’s not bad.
I didn’t do much writing over the weekend, bits and bobs on Sunday, but I wasn’t feeling too good again. I got another migraine on Saturday so felt kind of funny on Sunday, then yesterday I didn’t do anything as I was feeling dizzy all day. Even had a day off work because of it. Shame, I could do with a day off to work on some writing.
God, I’ve just realised I’ve not started reading anything this month. My goal is to read 2 novels. Damn. I think if I don’t get too far with that I can be quite lenient on myself – I know it’s because I’ve been getting these migraines and headaches so don’t really feel up tp reading. I’ll get on it when I’m over this spell.
The good thing is though, that it’s making me do writing. When I’m at work time really drags if I’m not doing anything, whereas if I’m writing, my concentration is taken, so it’s like I forget I’m not feeling too good. Every cloud and all that….
