Sundays are for Writing #55

This week was a MUCH better writing week than last week! I got in all five planned writing sessions. I’m hoping I finally have my schedule tweaked just right to make sure I have time for writing and everything else in the mornings before work. Because after work, it’s just not happening!

Sundays are for Writing #53

So…this week did not go as planned, writing-wise. And I’m actually okay with that. I have a very good friend—whom I consider family—going through something pretty horrible right now, and supporting her is way more important than my “normal” routine. (Ha. Like anything about my life is ever normal.)

One fiction-writing session, two book reviews, and that’s it. Better luck next week!

Sundays are for Writing #52

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!

Sundays are for Writing #49

My writing goal this week was five 2-page writing sessions. That’s…not quite what happened.

Instead, I got one 2 1/4-page session, one 2 3/4-page session, and one 5-page session. So…10 pages fro the week, and only two scenes away from finishing up this timeline and being able to move back to the present-day.

I hope everyone else had a good writing week as well.

Sundays are for Writing #48

I had another solid writing week. I did not finish the timeline I wanted to finish for my own little NaNo goal, but it’s almost done. New goal:  finish this entire draft by January.

I got in three fiction-writing sessions and wrote several book reviews as well. I need to stay ahead of the game there, as I might have over-committed on reviews for January. But…I get to review Michelle Sagara’s newest Chronicles of Elantra book, and I cannot wait! (Trying to resist rushing off to read that right now.)

Sundays are for Writing #47

I hit all my writing goals for the week! Three fiction-writing sessions (including some stellar revision ideas for the King Arthur story. Yes, I know the first draft isn’t even done yet…but I am almost through with one of the timelines.).

A few book reviews written as well. It was a good writing week!

Sundays are for Writing #41

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.

Sundays are for Writing #40

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!

Sundays are for Writing #38

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).
