Weeks 10 and 11 Round-Up

Is depressingly brief.

Progress on novel – none.

Progress on short story – limited.

I think its time to come clean with myself and admit I’m stuck. Bottom line is I’m very not happy with what I’ve written so far and don’t want to carry on with it, which is making me feel guilty and negative hence not wanting to write at all. To review:

Bike Wheel – stolen.

Laptop – broken.

Novel – crashed.

Nope, not my best ever week. Heres hoping I can find a constructive way forward in Week 12.

    Just as an afterthought, I take it you borrowed Lydia’s computer to write the above?
