Heading off to a cabin to write
I am heading off to a cabin on a river to write. My hubby will be there. And another couple. And another guy. And lots of alcohol. Okay so maybe the point of this trip isn't primarily to write but I do hope to get a bit of a wordcount knocked out.
But I am very much a drop everything if there is a hint of a gettogether/party/slightly fun social activity going on type of girl. Actually there are many things that make my brain go "Squirrel" and drop everything. But I don't usually feel guilty about the social stuff.
I've got a decent outline worked out and detailed sketches for Empty. So today will be the first day of redrafting. I was writing and writing without an outline before and I just can't trust myself to not go down too many rabbit holes. I'm not focused enough. I need somewhat of a map. I have decided not to be bummed about all of the wasted effort over the last couple of months. But rather to see it as a pretty short lesson in the scheme of things.
You know what will be weird? It'd be weird if the sky drops a few tears today. That would be weird. And amazing.
Happy Thursday, all!
