To be honest, I’m not sure I have a lot to say at the moment.
I haven’t been doing a lot of media consumption at the moment, so while I’d love to sink my teeth into something in the near future (and you’ll probably get inflicted with it), I haven’t had much time to do more than nibble. I seem to have found the magical six-ended candle to burn, and well, it hasn’t left a lot of time for blogging.
So in the meantime while I buy myself an extra week to get a decent blog post written by Friday, let me pose a question to you that’s been weighing on me for a while.
Whether it’s writing, or another narrative or creative pursuit that you personally spend your free time on, what’s the next step for you?
Not the next project, not the next step towards monetising your passion or otherwise getting it out into the world.
We’re all climbing our creative-skill mountain, and wherever you are on that mountain, there’s a next ledge just nearby. What’s your next ledge? Is it learning pacing, learning how to describe scenes, learning not to use a certain expression so much? Or is it something like refining your pre-writing technique so that you worldbuild faster, or taking a step towards carving out a regular time in your day to practice your skill?
What’s the next thing that’s going to get you to the top of the mountain?
And for another installation of unnecessary academia, well … watch this space.
