A fun fact about myself: I get very into Lent.
I try to sacrifice or do something every year because I’m all about self-improvement and growth. This is why I enjoy “New Year, New Me” season so much. I don’t know what that says about me.
So this Lent season, I’ve decided to actually write what my muse has been telling me what to write for several months. I’ve been dealing with very intense writer’s block.
I first chalked it up to being in a very new job situation and being very stressed. Then I blamed the Holidays. Then I blamed the new year. Finally, I realized that I was not working on projects that took up a lot of my thinking time but was working on ideas that I thought I should be writing.
So I’ve got a plan of what I want to tackle this March:
- I’m spending #zerodraftthirty working on the first draft of what I’ve been calling Frankenstein meets Wuthering Heights. It’s outlined and basically written in my head so I’m excited.
- I’m going to be doing revisions on a short I want to film this Summer and a feature that has been sitting on my desktop for a while and I know that I can get done.
- I’m going to outline and write a treatment for a feature that I’ve honestly been scared to write. I don’t think I’m ready to do it but some of the best things that I’ve written were ideas that I didn’t think I was ready to execute.
I don’t know if I will get all of those things done but I am jazzed about the fact that I am trying it.
I’ll update you all after Lent on how it went.
