Why I am allowed to make things that aren't perfect. (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] epi_lj!)

In related news, I'm going to take up the [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse challenge again, starting this week - my life has felt decidedly empty since I stopped churning out short stories (or at least vignettes / flash pieces) at a regular clip. Part of me wants to try to develop more involved pieces, but it would also be fun to treat them as quick and dirty creative writing exercises. Like last time, I'll probably do a bit of both depending on the prompt and how busy I am in a given week. I'm aiming for 30 weeks again (which will take me through to the end of July).

Speaking of last time, I have 20 weeks' worth of stories to play with. Some of them need quite a bit of work, too. Time to sharpen the old editing claws.

I also want to have at least one 20 minute play to submit to the SJTC by February 28th, and that's going to take a bit of work. I had an idea for one last month that I jotted down in a notebook somewhere, and I wrote a few things for Script Frenzy last year that I might be able to tweak to an appropriate length (possibly including "Don't Jump!," though I'm not sure if that idea will fly as well as a longer play.)

And have I mentioned here my slowly-forming plan to write and somehow video-ify close readings of movies and suchlike? It's in the larval stages at the moment but definitely on my "must make this actually happen" list for the year.

And I'm reading a lot more - I have two novels on the go. Two! It's been years since I did that.

Anyway. Clearly I am keeping myself busy. Looking forward to another year of pushing myself and making things out of nothing.
