Wow. I just realized I have not posted since Sunday. Presley is my excuse. Chasing around MJ all day plus trying to house train a puppy is near to impossible. She is the cutest little dog, but she is wearing me out.
I have made some progress on my writing this week and I am pretty proud of that fact. It is slow going with everything else that life has to offer, so at this point I see any progress with it as a major milestone.
This is probably the reason it goes so slow. Yes, that is right. I use an out-dated medium for my writing. I just cannot help it. My notebook and my pencil are my trusty sidekicks and I cannot seem to write without them. I then have to organize my thoughts and scribbles into some kind of sense while I type them out. It is not that I am a slow typist, but as I am sure you can guess, it gets kind of tedious to type out what I have already written – I feel like I am doing all my work twice and only on the first draft.
I know once I get to editing drafts, I will have to go over the same material time and again to make it right, but at this stage, it makes the writing process difficult and frustrating.
If anyone has any ideas, thoughts, anything that could help me move on from my need to use a pencil and paper, I would love to hear it. I desperately want to tell my story and feel driven to write it, but I need a more efficient and more up-to-date way to get it done.
