This weekend will be a weekend of things I need to – and therefore will – continue.

Fortnite Season 5 has kicked off with a bang, and all the new bits they’ve tossed in or changed have got me addicted once again. Paradise Palms and the desert area around it are my new jams, and I’ve done well digging myself out a good landing spot. This should be fun, and that’s coming from someone who has put around ten full days (240 hours) into the game so far. 😉

This next book however, is being a bit of a stubborn jerk. I’ve thrown a few thousand words at it so far but nothing seems to stick. That said, I’ve got a few new ideas on which scene to write first – so this might be the weekend something stays on the page. The idea is very strong, it’s just that I’ve yet to be able to sew it into a story as intricate and flushed out as OWOW (the code name for my first book). It’ll get there, and I’ve got a good feeling about the next two-ish days.

As for the short story, like I said; it has potential. Just over two thousand words at the moment, it’s just not cohesive and impactful enough to be released. It needs some major finessing, but unlike the book it has been progressing here and there. You may just see it soon.

Aside from that, I have no idea what my weekend might hold. I’d be satisfied if just two of these things made some progress, but I have a feeling I’ll but putting a fair bit of time into all three and not much else; that obsession coming up to rear its insistent head.

Continue? Hell yes I’ll continue. A little bit of obsession is good for the workflow.
