How was your weekend? I went out shopping, and that was nice, but no papers or comics.
Anyway, let’s get to it. The weather, life, and writing are pretty unpredictable sometimes.
Last Wednesday it was super-sunny and warm (at least for March–something like in the 50s). The ditches in a town that’s 20 minutes away were full of water from the rain we’d had.
Then yesterday it snowed. Several inches. Major weird (even though that means I must have been spoiled or what-have-ya…Spring isn’t officially here until the 20th, which is next Monday).
And there are times writing can stick its head in the door too, in ways I didn’t quite expect. A client I thought had maybe forgotten about me wrote me last night with specs I needed for his email project, so I’ll be working on that one this week.
I’ve also gotten a short story put together, along with a cover, so I’ll have to get that finalized (which means I’m also back to the science fiction/fantasy writing for adults that I love to do).
Some days things are nice, and others, it’s all I can do to hang on from day to day, head down, writing, prospecting, and more.
That’s like fiction and copy–most characters (and prospects for you copywriters) have a bubble. Something usually pierces or breaks that bubble, and the character ends up different (or the prospect does–because they’ve progressed in solving their problems with your solution).
I don’t say this very often before Friday, but make it an awesome week. Plan out stuff, execute other plans you’ve come up with, branch out, write new stuff.
While I won’t be there, I’ll be doing my best to do the same thing.
Until next time,
