Today, I also wrote a short section of The Harvest Draft in the afternoon because I had a Faculty Contract meeting early in the morning, and I expended most of my mental energy helping to draft counter-proposals. But, I made myself sit and write for an hour because these last two days, I have been so focused on writing my syllabus for English 101 that I haven't had the mental space to work on my novel.
On another downer, my creative writing class didn't make, according to the cut-off. I had ten students on Friday, and even though classes don't start until tomorrow, I missed the mark by two students. However, I hope to start an informal creative writing group with my former students, so we all keep writing through the summer.
I hope your energy is way higher than mine.
Keep writing, even if your routine gets out of whack. #Resist
