Summary: Ugh.  Another terrible week for writing.  Part of it has been distraction.  But for the story I’m working on, I suddenly feel as if I’ve forgotten how to tell a story.  I have two completely different approaches to the story and have been bouncing back and forth between both of them.  I can’t seem to settle on one or the other.  On Thursday or Friday, I finally sat down and reviewed my notes from the James Gunn workshop I did a few summers ago.  I think I’ve finally opted on the approach.  Now I just have to get back into the discipline I had back in November and get back to writing every day.  (This week I managed to write only one day!)
