(pathetic) April Wrap-up

Yeah, so, I haven't blogged much for the month of April. Initially my excuse was because I needed to revise. Then I received additional feedback on my LMB synopsis, so I worked on that (sporadically) and pretty much ignored my other project.

I've officially declared April SLUMP MONTH for me. My concentration sucked. I was distracted by so many things in the news (including the Boston bombers, several sensational local homicides, and a very bitter school strike) that I found it impossible to tear myself away from the stories, the blogs, and the message boards.

Adderall, anyone?

I supposed everyone deserves a few weeks of playtime now and then. But for someone who generally has a stick-to-it attitude, I disappointed myself. I claim writers don't have the luxury of waiting to "be in the mood" to write, and yet I'm the one who used this same excuse all month: "I'm not in the mood. Wahhhhh!"

Anyway...though a revised-revised-revised synopsis wasn't on the menu for April, that is done.

May goals: Continue to revise Berta project while feedback on LMB project is pending.

AND BLOG, for pete's sake. One note a day for the month of May. Pinkie promise.

Slump Months are hard to avoid sometimes, unfortunately...

Anyway, good luck with your May goals! Will be crossing my fingers that it doesn't end up mirroring April for you!

Thanks. I'm already psyched. :)

It happens to the best of us. And even though you didn't actually get a lot physically completed, you faced a pretty serious issue with your WIP recently. That's bound to make you take a break and think it through properly before continuing on. I'm sure you'll make May your comeback month where writing is concerned and I'm looking forward to more blogging, too. It makes no sense to me how, but I always seem to write more when I blog more. Maybe the same will be true for you! Good luck! :)

" It makes no sense to me how, but I always seem to write more when I blog more."

This is often true! (unless it's NaNo month)
