The Funky Funk

Ever find yourself in a funk? Just a mood funk, and nothing else? I'm all moody today, not "bite-your-head-off" moody. Just teenager moody. I hear songs and get all nostalgic or something, I dunno. Maybe I've been hanging out with Jessa, my MC of WIP, too much. Hah! Probably not. I think I need to hang out with her even more. I hate it when I get to a scene, and I know where I want to go with it, but for some reason just struggle. Like, how do I get from point A to point B and it not be complete GARBAGE?

But then when I go and read it over (yes, I'm all for breaking Nano rules . . . what reason were rules made for, anyway?? ;) ) I say to myself, "Huh, not too bad." But still, not as good as I want it to be. In my head, of course, it's magnificent. My subconscious would be a kick ass writer if I could plug it into my PC and let it go wild.

My friend Sara did an "interview" with her characters, and it's wildly entertaining. I may have to try this out one day, though I doubt mine would be AS entertaining. Why? Because, I don't have PIRATES! AAARRR YE MATY! (That was my pirate salute to you, my dear Sara!)

I'm also in a funk because guess what? Do I get to write tonight? Noooo, I have to study for a silly math test involving quadratic equations and other nonsense. It's worth it, yes. Education good. Miss my writing. Want to pout and brood. I'm 10% at my goal though, so yippee for that. I've decided my Nano-meter is going to be updated weekly instead of daily because it's just a pain in the butt to go and put in new info. Yes, I'm that lazy. Or...I'm that BUSY.

Toodles!

  2. I think it's definitely because you're too busy.

  3. I get in those moods too. Overwhelmed, overworked and no time to do what you want to do! I really like the idea of interviewing characters. I'm going to do that!

  4. I actually like being in a funk. Those are the times when I feel the most clear-headed. It sounds weird, but it works for me. I would prefer to be able to achieve the same goals without having to be funkified, but c'est la vie.

  5. Maybe we should do an "Interview Your Characters" month!

  6. I LOVE your pirate salute. Totally accurate. You'd fit right in with Yazoo and his crew :)

    Studying for tests is SO overrated. Oh wait -- you have a math test? Eek. Yeah, studying might be necessary then. Anything else and you could wing it.
