I'm working on getting over my writer's block. It went away at the beginning of the month, but it's slowly coming back. I attribute that to the difficult scenes that are coming up (some including a bank robbery shhhhh). Also, I'm dealing with pacing issues. I know I can fix that stuff in editing, but I'd rather not have too?
Life's also been pretty busy. No, Camp NaNoWriMo doesn't help with that, BUT it does make me feel more productive. I know that I'm still a writer even if I don't write every day, but it's hard to believe it. Camp helps keep me on track and feel like I'm being productive, even if I'm just barely plugging along at my book.
I try to write every night before I shower, no matter how late it is. It helps me relax, and I write faster with sleep as my motivation.
In other news, I completed the Pride and Prejudice movie (which I turn in tomorrow!) and helped film and edit a book trailer for C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters directed by my friend Jessica. Both were fabulous projects and made me realize how much I miss filmmaking. (So, yeah, I'm planning on making another movie this summer!)
This month, I've had to learn how to say no (or wait) to things. I really like doing things for people (especially if people ask me to do something creative for them), and I feel badly if I do have to say no. However, I don't have time to commit to so many projects. I've had to do that a few times this month and it's something I need to work on.
Word Count Progress
So far, I'm on schedule (by the time I post this, anyway). At the beginning of the month, I wrote a lot more to give myself some wiggle room. Sadly, I've used that up...
