No fiction-writing for me this week. I just enjoyed my vacation…and wrote a few book reviews. Because a lot of reading happened on vacation, too.
Busy—and short—week. Only two writing days before leaving for vacation. Progress is progress. My goal for NaNo is to finish the WIP.
This was an okay writing week, in that I did one less writing session than I’d planned. But, since it was due to mental and physical exhaustion…I’m okay with that. So, four sessions for eight pages total.
Plus… a lot of book reviews (working ahead to over the days I’ll be on vacation the first week of November).
This week, I’ve done no writing. Nada. Zero. Zilch. And I’m actually okay with that. With everything going on this week, I would have just been forcing words, and that wouldn’t have been a good thing.
So, here’s hoping this next week will be a better writing week. And…I’m planning to write and schedule five book reviews today, so there’s that…
This was a solid writing week. Still adjusting to the new schedule. I got in four writing days, three pages each.
I planned on writing Friday, but…
…the temperature dropped 50 degrees from Thursday afternoon (95 to 44, y’all. Welcome to Texas.), and it was raining Friday morning, plus I was off Friday (getting ready for a work trip), and I just wasn’t feeling it. So I gave myself permission to take the day off from writing.
And I’m okay with that.
I started my new work schedule—sort of—this week, so I was able to get in five writing sessions (last Monday was still the old 6-to-6 schedule, so writing was out). Fifteen pages of fiction this week!
I also did some outlining in the current WIP, the King Arthur story; as well as in my tentative idea for NaNo (creating six characters and outlining five scenes). I’m super happy with the week!
It’s been solid writing week: 9 pages of fiction as I increase my writing days/pages. I also wrote three book reviews this week. I’ll be interested to see what next week brings, as I start my new work schedule and position.
Another solid writing week in the books. I got in my six pages of fiction, plus three book reviews, a bit of NaNo planning, brainstorming for the current WIP, and a little work on the HTWAN class. Plus working five days (although two of those days were only 4-5 hours each).
I got in all my writing sessions this week, for a total of six pages, plus three book reviews and scheduling an excerpt for The Widow of Pale Harbor, by Hester Fox, which will be live tomorrow, followed by the review on Tuesday.
It’s been an eventful week: I had my interview for a new position at work on Friday. Which was odd, to say the least, because I knew way before that that I already had the position. I’ve been pretty frustrated at work the last few months, but all of that hard work felt validated.
I start the new position the first of October, although I may still be training my replacements the next week or two after that.
Because of my work schedule this week, I only got in two writing days, but I still did the number of pages I’d do for three writing days (six pages). I also wrote four book reviews, so it’s been a good writing week.
I’m still going with the idea of doing NaNo, and I intend to start planning today. Along with some more planning for the current WIP.
In other news: it’s official. I completed all the degree requirements for my master’s in journalism!
