Experiment Update: Love Sucks…for My Writing

Mmmm. I am in the happiest space right now. In between chapter 6 and chapter 7, I fell in love; floated away in love is more accurate.

And, while I’m up here on cloud nine, I finally got around to looking back down to Earth at all of my responsibilities. They seem so small from this view, but I know they are important. One, is the Jane Doe Novel Experiment. I planned for sick days, and vacations, and-Lord forbid-writer’s block, but I did not plan for how much time being in love takes away from me.

And really, it doesn’t take that much time away. But when I’m not with him, I’m  thinking of him in my down moments. Those down moments used be dedicated to Lily, Ava, Carson (I miss his arrogance), and Dominic. I have to buckle down and move my new love out my fantasies and let my old loves take back over.

What does this means? Hopefully that I’ll get my, “butt in chair, hands on keyboard” again really soon. For now, it means that I have officially missed my first deadline…there isn’t a chapter 7 for release tomorrow.  That feels bad and I’ll try to get it back on track asap…but this feeling of love, it’s worth using one of my four miss days. So worth it….

    That’s a way better reason than any of the ones that would have kept me from writing!
