I only worked Monday through Wednesday this week, and it was a solid writing week, even if it was only three days long: two fiction-writing sessions, five book reviews, work in the Stiefvater class, and brainstorming on my planned revision.
This hasn’t been quite as busy a writing week: two fiction-writing sessions and four book reviews, but I didn’t get anything done in my writing class or in my revision. It’s still progress, so I’ll take it.
It was another solid writing week: two fiction sessions, six book reviews (I wanted to get another one written, but it took me quite a bit longer than I expected to read the book), two lessons with Maggie Stiefvater, and a bit of brainstorming on the re-write of Chasing Shadows.
This week was a much better writing week! I got in all four planned fiction-writing sessions, and I wrote a handful of book reviews, too. Happy for the improvement!
I had another solid writing week. I had three planned writing sessions, and I got them all in without a problem. Started on the second timeline in the King Arthur story, so that’s taken a bit of mental adjustment.
I’m also working through Holly Lisle’s How to Write a Novel lessons for the new planned project. I love Holly’s classes—and I’m hoping this will help me straighten some things out before I start writing.
I’ve found this weekly update post to be super-motivating for me: I think there were only three weeks this year that I didn’t do any writing! And that is such a huge improvement from the past few years, I’ll definitely keep doing these update posts next year!
This week was crazy busy. Seriously. But, I still got in two writing days!
About 1,500 words of fiction this week. (Ah…10,000-word days are such a fond/unbelievable memory now. Thank you, NaNo!). I also wrote five book reviews this week (three of those were written and scheduled on Thursday, before I left for my conference.)
For accountability purposes: in addition to three writing days this week (or 2,200 words), my goal is also to get two lessons done in HTWAN, because I am woefully behind.
How was everyone else’s writing this week?
Confession time: I think I only wrote about 600 words this week. Yep. Two 10-minute sessions and that’s it.
But…at least it’s writing. And I did do academic writing. Like…two decently long discussion board posts, and a 5-page paper that kind of made me want to bang my head on my desk. And three book reviews. So, at least there was writing.
Here’s to a better week.
Anyone else getting any writing done?
I got in two and a half writing sessions this week. I say “half” because I only did one 10-minute session Saturday before all my motivation gave up and wandered away.
Still, three solid writing days, and writing for 11 weeks in a row! I’m very happy about the accountability posting this weekly is giving me, which is quite motivational. (Maybe I should start posting my weekly workouts, too, lol.)
How has the writing been going for everyone else?
Ten weeks. I’ve done some writing every week for ten weeks!
That’s a huge victory for me. I used to write all the time, but the last six years have been sporadic at best. Writing fiction has become a habit again, along with writing articles for class and honing those skills.
At least 750 words three days this week, which is my goal. Yay!
I didn’t get a lot of writing done this week. Basically only Thursday, and somewhere a bit less than a thousand words. But still: words.
Discovered something unexpected about my MC’s father.
I also didn’t get any work done on my HTWAN lessons. I’ve got to get that going again.
