#MAYKingItWork: Decision Day

Standard

Commitment is a strong word.

If you’re with me for #MAYking it work, a challenge to pick something unfinished and get to it, you probably know that, when Friday seemed like a good chunk of time away, we all agreed that we would choose our manuscripts and/or projects by today.

OK, fine, maybe you didn’t say it out loud, but you were definitely thinking it. Well, today is Friday.

And I’m still waffling. I want to pick one particular project, but inspiration for another without far to go came last night. In the contrary way my brain tends to work.

Contrary brain.

Anyway, I will not be diverted! I am going with my first choice: another Aunty Ida book.

There. Said it. No backsies. I’m on it.

How about you? Did you choose? Was it harder than you thought?

Have a dusty, unfinished manuscript you need to work on? Join us in May for #MAYkingItWork! Commit to a project and commiserate with us!

    Yup, I’ve picked mine. Working title (and only that) is The Dungerness Estate. My commitment it to fully plot this started project so that when I have time to write I know where I aim to go and how. If I get to do some more writing on it once the plan is finished, that’ll be a welcome bonus.

    Oh & great news on there being another Aunty Ida, although I still have another one to read yet.

    • Yay! That sounds great (and intriguing). I am not an outliner, so I’ll be interested to hear how it all goes!

      Yes, really have no say in the matter. Aunty Ida is kind of pushy 😉

  2. Yep I have plans to try to finish my novel. Along with a whole host of other things on the list (aren’t there always?) I am looking at a full blown writing weekend along with some overflow 9-5 work. Onward.

    I know what you mean about a contrary brain, but like you I’m sticking with my first choice. A short story tht I started a long time ago, and which I know how it ends, but is lacking a middle. should be about 4000 words to write…

        It’s an odd world at the moment, for sure. Biting of fingers purely metaphorical! Had a good conversation with the author of A is for Arsenic yesterday – lots of good ideas.
