shaking the laziness [Feb. 7th, 2011|10:38 am]
I didn't get as much time to work on my book last week. For those of you who may have not known, I was laid off from my full time job in October. So I work part-time doing graphic design from home, as well as working part-time on the weekends bartending. Last week I found myself with a bit of design work as well as running around getting prepared for a chili contest which took about 2 days. I did a little work on the book, although not as much as could have. It's hard to shake the laziness of the past few months.

I probably have about 20 mostly nonsequential pages thumbed out. I've found that I'm getting a barebones scene thumbed out and then I want to immediately go back and flesh it out. I also have found that there are entire ideas I want to scrap and redo. It's hard to resist the urge to rework what I already have but right now I need to just try and focus on getting ideas out of my head.

Btw, While I missed top 5 and therefore any prizes in the Chili contest, I did end up placing in 7th out of 25-28 contestants.
