So far today,

1)I've wrote a poem,

2)played on the literary groups at dA, reading some and commenting on things,

3)thought a bit about the SF story I'm working with (and have started.  It may end up being fairly short),

4) going to the gym where our trainer worked our butts off  and I've gotten up to doing curls with 15 lb weights...yay! Once I could curl with 25 lb weights...perhaps that day will come again (I think my trainer gets a kick out of the fact this fat old grandma gets such a kick out of resistance training)

5) wondered about grabbing some reference photos for certain things that are going to be in my longer story

6) plugged into my Adam Lambert music and am wondering if I have recovered enough from the training session to do half an hour of cardio,

7) commented and posted on LJ

8) successfully put off facing my story outline until now.

So now, I gotta go into the other room and see if I can actually make myself do some work.  I probably ought to start writing some of what I have in mind as I go along...for me, it's all about committing to various decisions, and I can't really do that in outline form.  Maybe if I journal about it....off to work for a bit.

Curls are hard! I can barely do a few with 15 lbs. Go you! Since you're that awesome, you know that outline will be a piece of cake once you get started.

Re: Welp,
Me and outlines don't work well together...I tend to outline in my head instead of on paper...but I am journaling on things, and I have a board to put the schematic as I go along.

I like to discover things as I go along in writing, which makes serious preplanning hard...so I am compromising, and will think ahead, but not to the point it makes me not write.

Luckily, this is not the Nanowrimo, so I can use my favorite recursive editing style and have time to recast plotholes...LOL.

Re: Welp,
I don't like outlining, either. When I do it,I don't feel like writing it. I prefer to just write and see what happens.
