Tick, Tick, Tick...DEADLINE!

I do not know if any of you remember, it has been a long time since I have last talked about it. How has it been this long?!

I love to write and one day I want to publish a book, the thing is I have slight problems when writing—I can get anywhere from 3,000 – 8,000 words but then I loose my focus I get distracted with new stories and ideas or just can seem to get myself past that bar for some reason.

I have decided I am going to MAKE myself do it.

And I know just how—I have to have a deadline. I need one, I need the pressure to make myself write and not lollygag around, etc, etc. You get the point. I did a short story that I submitted to an anthology a while back—it did not make the anthology in case you were wondering—but I had to have it to them by a certain time and I did it, met the word goal, etc and had it to them.

I need the deadline. Crazy but true.

As to my not getting put in the anthology—I have to say I was glad, the deadline pushed me to write which was wonderful but I also had a word limit and my story, to me, did not feel complete at all like it was missing big gaps.

So when I got it back I was going to start back writing on it—I had made it that far, right? I could do it!

I think I have written 1,000 maybe 2,000 words on it since then. . . This is just sad.

I don’t have the deadline anymore and now I just can not write it anymore and the book idea in itself had a lot of potential and the people who read the short story really liked it, even one of the authors who was doing the anthology said it was good just not what they were looking for in that anthology and maybe I could try submitting it to the publisher for a different genre.

So I am going to do something about it, I am going to give myself a deadline—each week I am going to post some on my story. It will be a blog story posted each week for everyone to read. I am hoping that the weekly deadline will force me to actually write some and maybe, just maybe, I will actually get past 8,000 words. Also, I hope to get some feedback on my writing etc as well.

Be on the lookout my Zombies! Starting next week, on Sunday I think, I will be posting the first part of The Curse my paranormal romance novel. :)
