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.
I finally got back to writing book reviews this week! Three of them, to be exact. And three fiction sessions, so it was a good writing week. Still trying to get comfortable with the new story and the new characters, but it’s slowly happening.
I hope everyone had a good (writing) week! I’m still reading strictly for fun (apart from my monthly reading selections), so no book reviews, but I did get in three fiction writing sessions. The characters are starting to sort themselves out a bit, so it’s the fun part.
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.
It was a good writing week: four book reviews, work on the Chasing Shadows revision, and three sessions of NaNo planning.
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.
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.
A good writing week again: four book reviews, two fiction sessions, two lessons in Maggie Stiefvater’s class, and I started writing the Chasing Shadows revision.
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!
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!
