I have to admit, I haven't done much writing in the last week. My brain has been completely filled up with other things: my daughter's upcoming birthday, my son's stomach virus (thankfully brief), my upcoming vacation, assorted paperwork shuffles at the Day Job, proofing a novel for TQ...

Also, I've been re-reading the first four books of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series so I can dive into the newly-released fifth (I just finished book 2), hanging out with friends, getting pedicures, and acquiring all the alternate blades and backdrops on Fruit Ninja.

I did sit down and try to write a couple of times, but it just wasn't coming out. Aside from all the distraction, I'm also in a state of loathing for the current project, so I either need to pick out a second project to work on while I wait it out, or bull through and finish the damn thing even if I hate it, just so I can give it to my beta reader and let her tell me what the hell is wrong with it, because I'm damned if I can figure it out.

As mentioned -- vacation next week, so unless the exotic locale opens up my brain in new and exciting ways and I end up staying up past midnight every night feverishly writing (o gods please), there probably won't be a post next week. But to make it up to you -- if you leave me some prompt cues in the comments, I'll write some flash fiction when I get back!

  1. Hey, Liz - hope you have a great vacation. Just came back myself, so my brain is refreshed and ready to shoot vexing prompts. *smirks*
