And now for the fussing. I'm not sure I'm going to hit June 30. I think, THINK I'm at the halfway point now. I'm not giving up on the goal but there are some complications.
Complication #1 is a birthday dinner for my buddy, Seann. Totally ok and understandable complication.
Complication #2 is I got accepted into Connie Willis and Greg Frost’s writing workshop this weekend. The workshop is on the ‘Periodic Table of Literary Elements of Science Fiction’. I was on the waitlist all the way back in March and luckily for me, someone dropped out. So, no way I can miss that. Related, the Locus awards are Saturday, I signed up for that and the award dinner months ago.
I may be able to squeeze in some writing late Friday, Saturday and Sunday but basically that’s four days of diminished or no productivity. It’s June 21st today, so…
Will I get done on time? I honestly don’t know. I’m going to keep charging ahead. I’ve learned a bit about managing distractions, though I still have work to do in that area. But I’m encouraged by how smoothly the words are flowing out. So, we’ll see.
