The Magic Spreadsheet

I'm a pretty avid reader, and though right now I'm not exactly what I'd call an avid writer, I'd really like to be again. I think I'm about coming back around to having the urge to write for the first time in a long time, which is fantastic because for quite a while there, I couldn't even think of it without being totally and completely turned off. Thanks, thesis! You see what you've done to me?! Eh hem, anyway, in the interest of getting back into the grove and writing again, I found something awesome that will help hold me accountable. Behold, I bring you the Magic Spreadsheet and the Magic Spreadsheet Facebook group. Now go check this thing out and sign up. I signed up today and I'm going to try to use it to hold myself to a writing schedule. It seems like a really neat idea!

Now I just need to decide what to work on. I have a few WIPs and a few ideas floating around in my brain for new stuff. Do I want to start something new to kick off my return to writing? Or, do I want to go back to something that's already 52k+ words in (like Love's Daughter) and wrestle with it some more? I just don't know. It doesn't seem like it would make a good start to go back to something that had me stumped last time I worked on it. Might start something new, good vibes and all of that. Maybe what I should be doing will come to me in a dream. . . although my dreams have been really disturbing lately, so maybe not. O.o
