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 #88

This has been a rather hectic writing week, as I crammed everything into four days instead of five. But: five book reviews, finished up the last four lessons in the Maggie Stiefvater class, and a bit on the Chasing Shadows revision, so I’m happy.

Sundays are for Writing #87

This was an excellent writing week! In addition to two fiction-writing sessions, working on the Chasing Shadows revision, and two lessons in the Maggie Stiefvater class, I wrote seven book reviews + two other blog posts.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #85

Cheers for another solid writing week:  four book reviews, two fiction-writing sessions, two lessons in the Stiefvater class, and a brief brainstorming session on the revision of Chasing Shadows. (Think I’m going to just bite the bullet and start this, so I don’t get too bogged down in procrastination.)

I hope everyone had a good writing week!

Sundays are for Writing #84

This week, I wrote four book reviews, did two fiction-writing sessions, two lessons in the Stiefvater class, and worked on writing a synopsis of Chasing Shadows to give me some story clarity. It was a solid writing week!
