The name of the game this week was productivity. It’s a new year and I wanted to hit the ground running, and I think I did alright.
I got in and cleaned my apartment now that all the holiday festivities are over and my Christmas decorations are put away, I did some grocery shopping, re-organized my pantry, and got some of my end-of-the-year paperwork set aside for tax prep in the next few months. I even finished reading a book in my downtime!
I also started working out some of the nitty-gritty details of my antagonist’s backstory, something I hope will lead to some insights into strengthening her character arc. With all those other tasks already off my plate, I hope to undertake a massive rewrite over the next couple of weeks, really beefing up my characters and hopefully plugging any remaining plot holes, no matter how small. Hopefully, my productivity this past week translates into plenty of writing time with few distractions!
