Sundays are for Writing #108

This was an interesting writing week. Three book reviews, and no fiction writing…because I realized that, although I’m only 40 pages into the new story, nothing is really happening (except for the opening scene), and I am, in essence, just feeling out the characters.

I think the Muse has been trying to tell me she’s bored, so I finally listened. Instead of three actual writing sessions, I did three sessions of brainstorming. I think the setting is key to fixing this issue, and now I know how I want to change that. I’ll probably spend this next week fine-tuning the idea, then see if I can use any of what I have with the new setting.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #95

I’m pretty happy with this week of writing: five book reviews and a plan for NaNo. I have to admit, though, I’m a bit nervous about NaNo. It’s been years since I’ve written with any kind of daily word count goal, so that’s a little scary.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #92

Another solid writing week—a bit busier than usual—that I’m happy with. Four book reviews, finished up the new story snippet, worked on the Chasing Shadows revision, and started planning for NaNo.

Because yes, I decided to do NaNo this year–but it’s going to be a modified version, with my goal of 25,000 words instead of 50k (which is still loads more than my normal + a vacation in there, too).
