Holding out for a Hero

Where have all the good men gone, and where are all the gods?

Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?

I need a Hero!

So I’ve been thinking a lot about how to get started with writing my book that I have the cool idea for. It’s kind of a bit intimidating, because I don’t want to get started in the wrong direction, but starting is definitely, definitely better than not starting, waiting for when I have time, or whatever. But what if I start wrong like I did last time, and then it doesn’t go anywhere?

I am also feeling guilty about abandoning my first ‘big’ lockdown project. My big problem at the moment is that I have paid for a silly damn CS course that I feel like I should finish before I can treat myself to another course, and there is a plotting course that I feel like would provide me with the right sort of structure to get me going with this writing.

But I should probably just get going before waiting, right?

Maybe this will just involve me being a bit better about not being a lazy slob every evening, and strap my learnin’ hat on and get going.

Doing a course to finish it is not really my style, when I know the content is valuable. But also, as a learning designer (my day job), I know that the middle patch of a course is often challenging and leads to a slump of momentum. Going to focus on it for the weekend, and through the week, and perhaps by the end of July I’ll have finished the thing. The end bit will be very very useful for the blog, because I’m going to take the web design stream, which will allow me to customise the CSS a bit. It will benefit me.

But it’s not as much fun as thinking about my book and its intrepid hero and her hi-jinks.

Day 25.
