I wanted to write all day today, but I ended up doing everything but writing until late in the day. It's amazing how people don't need your time until after you've already made plans. It was okay though because I was more helpful to other people today than I have been in a long time. Sometimes it's good to feel useful. I wasn't working towards my purpose, but I was able to help someone else work towards theirs. I really enjoyed my day.
I was able to spend some time writing this evening. A new story came out of me. The story is kind of depressing and reminds me of Starving for Love, but it felt good to release some of the darkness and self-doubt that has kept me imprisoned for the past few years. I never thought I would write a story as sad as Starving for Love again. I'm not sure if I'll finish the new story. Maybe I just needed to get a chapter out my system. That said, I'm completely in love with the main character and the struggles that he's facing being left behind. We'll see if I share the story or scrap it. Either way, I had to let it out.
My goal for this week is to sneak in more time to write and to find a new way to advertise for Bump That.
