Baby Steps

Baby Steps

In some ways I’m surprised it’s been almost a week since I last updated and in other ways I am not. I honestly think I left my writing drive in Bermuda or something. I’ve been just giving the muse time and I’ve been having patience with it come back into the groove, but I think the time for patience is over. Spirit Hackers has been collecting virtual dust and Copious Notes has suffered too, as you’ve all seen. So I have decided a plan is needed to force myself back into something I know I love to do.

First, and most importantly, I plan on blogging every day this week. Now I know you’re thinking ‘Today is Tuesday, you already missed the mark’ but keep in mind my weekend is Sun & Mon, so for me, today is the beginning of a new week. Additionally, that also means I’ll update this Saturday also (or provide a nice, long Weekender to make up for it). I believe that by blogging, that will help feel like a writer and get S.H. moving again.

Yesterday while food shopping, I did think about the roadblock I hit last time which consisted of the design of a key machine for the story. I think I was able to come up with a design and idea that will work for the story and the possible sequel. It’s just a technical hold-up but I’m glad I have at least something. That is the slightest progress (aside from updating here) but I’ll take it.

Finally, I’m going to try to get back into the AW thread again that I have fun on. That’s another thing that helps.

I have some great stuff for you guys, including a Capacious Kindle entry that deals with the whole Oprah endorsement, which will be a lot of fun. I’ll talk to everyone soon!


  1. The baby steps caught me. I am trying to write every day and sometimes I can and sometimes I can’t. I have your blog on my faves now, so I will check in. See you on tcf.

  2. Betts, thanks for visiting and commenting. I was writing practically every-other day but life gets in the way. It can be tough at times. I appreciate you making Copious Notes a favorite blog and look forward to seeing more from you on here.

    Also, what’s your ID on TCF?
