I spent the past week studying and haven’t written a word since last Wednesday. But the chapters just kept piling on. (Actually, I have two more I should be reading right now.) This workload is either going to make this the longest semester ever, or it’s going to fly by because I’ll be too busy to think about it. I’m hoping for the latter.
However, just because I haven’t written anything, doesn’t mean I haven’t been plotting. But of course, I’ve been thinking about the wrong story. It’s always the characters from the stories I’m not writing that want to talk to me. (Or the character whose story has no plot, he likes yapping in my ear. Yes, I love you, but you don’t have a story! Come back when you have one, please.)
Anybody else have that problem? What do you do?
