I arrived back in Australia at the beginning of September. I spent my first week in Melbourne and then returned to Queensland. In a previous post, I mentioned that I was going to use this time between visas as a cheap arse writing retreat since I have the luxury of not having to work.
In the first two weeks, I didn’t write shit 😦
I was really bummed about it too. Like why wasn’t I in the mood to write or edit? It’s not like I had stories that needed work. So for days I was in an ‘erh’ mood and then one day boom, I had a thought and I liked it and now I’ve written 10,000 words for it. This is another Sci-Fi novella. Then I had another idea and wrote like 5,000 words in one day 😀 That was two days ago.
It’s strange how finding a story happens. I think that maybe soft Sci-Fi is turning out to be my preferred genre.
