I ran today, but that's the first time for several days. I've learned that when the temperature when you wake up is 12 degrees, it's best to wait a few hours before you go running, and give the air a chance to warm up. By the time I came back, I suspected I had frost bite on my ears, my hands, and several other placed I would prefer not have it.
I've had a couple of story ideas, but I've just been letting them slosh around while I finish the story I'm working on. I'm not plotting this one, just letting it go and see how things go. This is just an experiment. I mapped and planned and sucked all the fun out of writing trying to get every little detail down, so now I'm going organic-ish for my stories to see if I can make it more fun.
Two problems with that:
- It makes for getting stuck to be very easy.
- When you get stuck, it makes it easier to procrastinate.
- Procrastination leads to no writing.
- That's bad for my goals.
So I need to find a happy medium, where I can plot out and know how things are going, but also leave room for loosey-gooseyness and fun.
Anyway, how's the new year going for everyone else so far?
