Writing Short Things Again

I haven’t been doing a lot of writing lately, novel or blog. I don’t have much of a reason other than I’ve been going into school for a few hours this past week. Actually, that makes for a great excuse. If I’m going in to school, I’m not going to drink coffee which is essential for my creative juices. If I drink coffee before school, I’ll feel like I’m wasting that creative burst. Also, coffee has a tendency to speed up my metabolism and I’ll get prematurely hungry at school. And jittery.

So yeah, I haven’t been writing because I can’t drink coffee before school because I don’t want a fast acting metabolism.

But fear not. Today, I started working on writing a short piece. It’s now in draft form and needs finishing followed by polishing. I’m actually pretty excited by the mere fact that I’m writing short pieces again. For the past few years it’s either been true to life blogging or working on my novel. This might distract me enough to recharge my juices to finish the novel. At the very least, it will be nice to have something new in the Fiction section on this website.

I’ll let you know when it’s done. Or I won’t because I’ll post it here and you’ll see it anyway.
