tbonejenkins: (Just a housewife)
Back in March, I had to turn down writing an article. It bummed me, because I really wanted to write it. But I knew I wouldn't make the deadline.

* I had another essay due the same week (the one coming out in Uncanny Magazine this month)
* I also had my book review deadline for Lightspeed that week.
* And I finished up edits on chapter 36 of Willow, my novel.

I had written all of this down in my bullet journal, which I've been keeping since early February. Let me tell you something; holy cow. Bullet journals are AWESOME. Because I was feeling blue about turning down that article, and thinking I've missed my chance to become a published writer, etc. and so forth. But looking at what I did in the bullet journal reminded me, oh yeah, I couldn't do the article because I'm doing all this other writer stuff.

Thus, turning down that article wasn't a loss of a writing credit. It was TIME MANAGEMENT.
::NOD NOD::

I'm going to start posting writing updates here. Trying to get back into the habit of journaling online. This week, here's what I got going on writerwise:

*Starting in on edits for Chapter 38 of Willow (38 chapter out of 45)
*Researching for a quick short story/prose poem about black mermaids
*Finished first draft of another short story. Letting that rest a week.
