Wow, where did June go? The month flashed by in a blur. Although I continued to write on a daily basis, I was also working hard on another project. This project was completely different from writing: I was building a zombie dog for use in Screamfest, the haunted attraction I volunteer at in October. Last year, one of the owners created a zombie family for the show. I thought if we have a zombie family, they need a zombie dog and I decided to make it.
After a false start many months ago, I clicked into high gear to build the dog in June. This project definitely impacted my writing. My word count for the month was lower than I expected. However, I did keep writing and ultimately that’s the important thing.
Here are a couple of photos of the finished dog!
How has life interrupted your writing and what were your strategies to keep going?
