If you’ve been looking at my word tracking page recently then you might have noticed there haven’t been any big totals in recent weeks. I guess with AussieCon and the new puppy there’ve been plenty of distractions I’ve already mentioned here.
The other time sucker of recent weeks has been a new… I guess you’d say hobby… which I’d expected to take a lot of hours but hadn’t counted on just how much energy it would take. It’s funny because in a lot of areas of my life I’m far from a perfectionist, but every now and again I try my hand at something that brings out exactly that behaviour. This, it seems, is one of those hobbies!
I’m not stressed about the dip in writing productivity yet. It has surprised me, though, that my head isn’t bursting with stories as it usually would under such circumstances.
