Muddled & Quizzes

This is how I feel this week. Not so much confused, but a little muddled up. There's a lot of clutter inside my head, and most of it is because there are ideas, stories and characters trying to claw their way out. All at the same time!

Okay, the imagery makes it sounds like I'm a little nuts. And being a writer, somethimes I wonder about that. ;) Lol.

Anyway, my daughter's gone back to school after her two weeks off. Went back on Tuesday, halfway through the month, which left me a little... muddled. The fact that I finished my BIAW novella on the last day of her holidays, didn't help. I really enjoyed writing that tale, but now that the first draft is done, I'm going to leave it aside for a few weeks.

So... the question now is: what am I going to work on now? I keep shifting gears, only knowing for sure that for this week, I don't intend to get stuck into anything too intense. So I started a short story, which is now at almost 5k words. I'm hoping to finish it today, but what happens when the new week ticks over? Do I keep writing shorter tales until the new month comes? And then engage in a novel-sized tale? Or do I get stuck into some revision?

Gosh, I don't know yet. See, I told you I was muddled.

When I get like this, I usually write it out in a journal. I think it's time to pull it out and get all these thoughts out on paper. But while I feel like this, I enjoy doing quizzes. Yep, that's right. Not sure why, but it helps me get some sort of focus for the day. And so, I'm going to close off today with this quiz:

You Belong in Summer

Energetic, creative, and very curious about the world...
You're not going to let anything hold you back, especially a cold day.
Whether you're chilling out at the beach or partying all night, you live for the warm weather.

Well I'd say it didn't sound crazy at all, but since I consider myself crazy and I have the exact same problem, not sure I'm qualified to let you off the hook on that one. LOL

It's gotta be better then having no ideas though...right?
