This month has been good to me. I’ve been re-reading my most polished manuscript, and revising another, while working on a rough draft of a third. There’s something about making progress that puts me in a good mood. Which results in more progress. I actually went out on a limb and ordered a copy of Writers’ Market. (Ever notice how that thing can stare at you?)
I have new bullet journal spreads for February, and I’ve broken my revision goals down by project, instead of just cramming everything in under “Did I revise, today?”
I also added a goal tracker for reading. That really takes me back. To about third grade. It’s amazing how fast you can push something you genuinely enjoy, and should be doing, to the side in favor of MORE WORK!
February 5 question – Has a single photo or work of art ever inspired a story? What was it and did you finish it?
I don’t know about a photo or a work of art. Nothing’s coming to mind, anyway. Nope. For me, it tends to be that one science article or a peculiar bit of trivia. Did you know that mineral oil doesn’t conduct electricity? Now, what can you do with that?
It’s not that a photo couldn’t be the seed to grow a book from. It just hasn’t been, for me. Not yet, anyway.
I do, occasionally, come up with ideas while I’m working on my own art. (Which could probably stand to be yet another goal tracker in the Bujo.) And sometimes, there are ideas in the story behind the art.
So, what about you? How was your month?
