This weekend has been a fairly unproductive writing weekend. After an amazing push on the novel Wednesday night, I found myself busy with other things Thursday to Sunday.
My baby girl’s, father’s side of the family was having a huge get together this weekend. They were celebrating her grandmother’s 70th birthday and I volunteered to help cut together a compilation video of relatives wishing her happy birthday. It took all day Friday & of course Saturday was the party. Sunday I was a bit hungover. I’m sad that I lost three days in a row, but also glad to have spent some time with Lexy’s family. I think it’s super important to maintain a close relationship with her ENTIRE family. It’s for this reason I even attempt to have a relationship with my very complicated mother.
I did keep morale up by reading books on writing books during most of my downtime. This weekend I re-read Lawrence Block’s, Telling Lies For Fun And Profit and I also began Stephen King’s book, On Writing. I always find these books super inspiring, especially on days when I feel like a total fraud at the keyboard. Just do it, they say, and I believe them.
I love Lawrence Block and highly recommend him to all my fellow writers! The audible version is read by the author and he made me laugh. Stephen King, well I’ll save my review until I’ve finished the book.
I hope you’re having a great week friends!
