July is on the horizon, and I still haven’t decided if I’m going to do it or not. Or if I do, will I write or edit?
May was sucky for writing OR editing, and so far June isn’t looking any better. Editing has not happened, which is a big part of why I haven’t been blogging. Part of it is that I don’t know a lot about editing, so my anxiety flares up and I don’t do it. The other part is that I’ve been taking on stuff in real life that makes my free time less ‘free’, so I tend to excuse not writing during my far more limited extra time as mental health time to play online games instead.
I’m not even sure if what I need to do to my partial rough draft (the thing I was posting onto Wattpad) is even editing, exactly. Mostly I want to go back over my work and proofread, cleaning stuff up, rewording bits here and there, but generally leaving it alone. I eventually will have to fix it properly, but I posted it to share something with friends, and I’d kind of like to get more of it up. I’d also like to finish it, lol.
Add in the zillion stories I’ve got partially written (okay, it’s more like 20) and I’m feeling a bit lost.
I’m not exactly looking forward to July at this point, though I couldn’t exactly tell you why. Do I want to write? Kinda. Do I want to do July nano? Eeeee.
