Sometimes I think of downsizing my ambitions. Mainly because things feel overwhelming, and there is too much toxic drama going on. When the chaos appears, I don’t seem to get much done. My creativity comes to a screeching halt.
That said, blogging in the morning helps me start my days writing, and I love that. It was a small step, to get me to greatenss and creativity.
So, what I want to do for myself next, is write, and rewrite a short story, and get it published.
As discussed in previous posts, I want to apply what I know now, and see if I can make the necessary improvments to writing on a smaller scale. So, at the very least, one simple project, on a smaller scale to focus on to complete.
Yesterday, my sole goal was to write down the idea, then premise for the short story. This inspired the genre (southern gothic), and then I began asking myself questions like, why must the MC (main character) meet person x. What are the MC’s skills. In the meantime, I wrote out dialogue exchanges.
So story not written yet, as I want answers to my questions to refine my premise. The progress looks promising.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
