5am Writer’s Club Challenge – Day Six
After a long birthday of talking to people on Twitter, playing with puppies, and getting aggravated when I picked up my first take out meal in weeks only to see half the staff not wearing masks, I was ready to get back to work.
It was going to be easy to get back into the writing swing of things.
Or so I thought.
4:50 – Wow. I’m awake and I’ve never wanted to do this less.
5:00 – There’s still chocolate shavings from my birthday cake still stuck in my teeth, so I am going to brush before I get started. Just to subvert my own expectations. Definitely not stalling.
5:10 – No, I’m not going to check Twitter before I – oh wow, a ton of people are still sending me birthday wishes!
5:11 – NO. DON’T REPLY. YOU CAN DO THAT IN AN HOUR.
5:18 – Ugh. I forgot to crank up the AC before I went to bed. My little office is hot, and I’m disgustingly sweaty, and I hate this already.
5:19 – I forgot to close down the SDCC Zoom Q&A from the cast of What We Do in the Shadows Comicon that I was watching last night. I’ll just…
5:20 – STOP WATCHING IT. YOU ARE NOT WATCHING IT AGAIN RIGHT NOW.
5:21 – Finally started. Let’s do this.
5:37 – Oh come on. It’s 15 minutes in. Why did my brain just decided to stop?
5:38 – God, my writer’s block is brutal today. Time for my go-to. Having my characters talk about administrative paperwork.
6:15 – God, why? I’m writing a Sci-Fi fantasy story. I could literally be playing polo with fire breathing dragons right now. Why am I so interested in the administrative paperwork in a fantastical fantasy world? What is wrong with me?
6:16 – Oh well. At least my time is up. I can check out that Q&A now…
6:17 – WAIT, I’M NOT DONE YET.
6:19 – Ugh. I’ve been waiting to write the assasination attempt at a cocktail party all week but right now I just don’t wannaaaaaa….
6:24 – There. It’s done. I am done. WHY DID I AGREE TO DO THIS?
My seven day challenge is almost complete! Will I have the motivation to finish the seventh day? Come back tomorrow and find out.
