Making a Crack in my Writer's Block...

The past two days I've actually been able to take time out of my day to work on "The Shepherdess Princess" some more.  It felt good to get the little bit down that I did, but I still feel like I have a long way to go.  I'm taking things one day at a time for now.

I've also been kicking around an idea to make some more progress in one of my volumes of poetry that I'm working on, but haven't completely decided if I want to go forward with it or leave what I have in the manuscript as is.  My idea has a lot of cutting and pasting involved.  I also have a poem in my notebook that needs to be rewritten completely.  I was having an off day when I wrote the poem several months ago, and it seems incoherent every time I reread it.  I've been thinking about working on that this weekend.

If the weather where I live isn't too bad, I was thinking about grabbing my writing materials and walking to a nearby park.  Sometimes the solitude, and communing with nature helps me creatively.  I'm also thinking of going somewhere that I could plug in my laptop for a bit, and take the time to write that way.  I was thinking the Public Library would be a good place for that, and I could use the free Wi-Fi access if I come across another subject that I might have to research.  I also might not do that because knowing I could go online would be a major distraction.  I would need somebody with me to hold me accountable, or something.
