From The Dust Marinade to a Gourmet Work of Fiction


Hello all, it's time for another installment of the Insecure Writer's Group, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh.  To learn more about this wonderful membership please click on the preceding link.


After several weeks of juggling family and nursing school, I finally get a much needed break. Specifically, Spring Break. Woo hoo!!!! Unlike some students who go wild during this time and head to the beach for fun in the sun, I plan to hunker down at my desk and catch up on my writing. It's been a month since I've written anything, and I'm jonesing to escape into my world of fiction.

My short story is about two-thirds complete. If all goes according to plan, I hope to have it done by the end of next week. Then I intend to pull my first novel from its dust marinade,  and return it to the writing kitchen, where I hope to create a gourmet work of fiction.  If I can find the time.

Once school resumes, every second of every day is consumed by my studies. I truly feel like a fish out of water without my writing, so I need to figure out some way to work it into my day. Guess I could experiment with rising early, like 4 a.m early.  I've tried writing at night, but my brain is fried.    Any suggestions on ways to find time to accomplish my goal? I'd truly appreciate the help. Until next time, my friends.  Happy writing.
