The Sunday Circle is the weekly check-in where I ask the creative-types who follow this blog to weigh in about their goals, inspirations, and challenges for the coming week. The logic behind it can be found here. Want to be involved? It’s easy – just answer three questions in the comments or on your own blog (with a link in the comments here, so that everyone can find them).
After that, throw some thoughts around about other people’s projects, ask questions if you’re so inclined. Be supportive above all.
Then show up again next Sunday when the circle updates next, letting us know how you did on your weekly project and what you’ve got coming down the pipe in the coming week (if you’d like to part of the circle, without subscribing to the rest of the blog, you can sign-up for reminders via email here).
What am I working on this week?
Wading through the second act of the Ghost Western, which is in that horrible state where I don’t really know what’s going on and end up laying endless amounts of narrative pipe until I figure it out. My notebook drafts – not so much drafts as exceptionally long project outlines.
The goal, this week, is to actually get everyone out of town and heading into Hell.
What’s inspiring me this week?
I’ve been hitting the back-lists of The Allusionist podcast pretty hard this week, and it remains amazing every episode. There is always something I can take away, as a writer, from their discussions on language and semantics.
What part of my project an I avoiding?
I’m got to the point where I actually pick up the revision draft and work on, but…not for terribly long. Hoping this was just a factor of having the article deadline disrupting my routine a little last week, and I can move forward a little faster this week.
So how ’bout you, peeps? What are you up to this week?
