It’s August and I’m thinking I’ve hit the dog days of summer. Or maybe it’s just a bit of floundering on my own part because I’m not sure what I want to do this month.
I finished the revisions on Open Christmas Eve so, while not spectacular, the script is long enough to not be considered bullshit and I’m good with that. I no longer feel like a fraud, just a hack, and that’s my default, so it’s fine.
I also got the Storytime Jukebox up and running, which was a thing that I wasn’t sure I could or should do, but in the end I felt like I didn’t have a choice. The response I’ve had in the few days it’s been up is more than I actually hoped for and I hope it continues. I so appreciate the help.
It’s times like these, when the malaise and scatterbrainedness hits me, that I’m glad I have an epic To Do List of Doom. I may not know exactly what I want to work on, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have plenty of options.
So at some point during this month I will probably-
-Revise a couple of more stories for the jukebox and/or
-Write the first drafts of some short stories for the next anthology and/or
-Finish the first draft of one of my other test scripts for practice and/or
-Something else I can’t remember even though I just looked at the To Do List of Doom like four minutes ago.
Yeah. The scatterbrained malaise is that bad.
But August won’t be. I will be productive.
I will get at least one thing done.
I wonder what it will be.
