I'm feeling like a dandelion, half blown apart and drifting on the wind. It's already Sunday and time for the next ROW80 check-in? And it's the half-way point. Just past it, actually.
I think I have to acknowledge that I'm not getting anything done this round. I'm spinning my wheels. That happens to me a lot. This time, I'm not going to give up and go into hiding over it, though. I am going to make some adjustments. If I have to adjust things every week until I find something that works, so be it.
I've started certification training as a Kaizen Muse Creativity Coach this week. One of the things we'll be doing during training is working on a creative project of our own. I am choosing to recommit to my story and find my way back into it.
My plans on how to do this may change as I go along. For now, I'm going to use the novel engage tactic I learned from StoryWonk. Each weekday, I will do something that helps me connect with and stay engaged with my story for at least 10 minutes. Some of the things I plan to do:
- Write part of the story
- Work on the outline
- Make playlists to write by or for characters or scenes
- Find outfits for my characters to wear for particular scenes
- Journal as a character
- Work on a writing prompt to make it relate to my story
