Day one hundred sixty-two of my 365 Day Writing Project.
Tonight was a short session of writing for a couple of reasons. First, it was my birthday and we had a house-full of family over for dinner and birthday cake, which means I’m exhausted and stuffed to the gills with cake and ice cream. Secondly, despite how great standing up while writing has been working for me, I decided to sit down on the couch to write tonight. Big mistake. HUGE. (name that movie.)
Naturally, I have been nodding off left and right while trying to write. Newsflash to self: you can’t write when you’re asleep. At best you might get a long string of “LLLL’s” or some other letter as your head bobs and fingers press random keys. This notion of staying awake to write is not a complex one. I had it all figured out and then foolishly decided to try something else. Well, no more. Tomorrow, it’s back to standing.
