I had a fairly successful writing week this week. I got in four out of five planned fiction sessions, and I also wrote several book reviews. Even better, I did some brainstorming on the new writing project and a new editing/revision project. Definitely a win!

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 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.
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).
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!
This was my first full week without school or work obligations on Tuesday and Thursday, and it was an excellent writing week!
I got in writing sessions on three days, for a total of six pages, plus some planning on the King Arthur project, and a bit of work on the Holly Lisle HTWAN class. And…I’ve decided to do NaNoWriMo this year for the first time in…years! I’m actually super excited about this, and the Muse is already hinting at ideas. I want to finish the first draft of the King Arthur story before November, though. So it would probably be a good idea to plot that out…
Also wrote three book reviews and I’m trying to write a narrative nonfiction essay just because.
I didn’t write any fiction this week. My brain is not cooperating with that currently.
But, I did write a fair amount of non-fiction this week:
-four book reviews
-three staff profile blogs for the internship +
-finishing a super long blog post +
-transcribing an interview for another blog post for the internship.
Hopefully, my brain will cooperate with the fiction-writing next week. Turning over some ideas in life is taking up all its energy right now.
I had a very good writing week. I started working on the new story, and got in three sessions/2,250 words for the week.
I also outlined five new scenes, and completed two writing lessons, hitting all my writing goals for the week. The voice of the new story still isn’t quite established, but I think that’s because it’s told in alternating time periods, making voice a little tricky. We’ll see what the week holds in store.
So…I didn’t do any actual (fiction) writing this week. The story I was working on, well, I still have no idea where that is going, so working on that is accomplishing nothing. Meanwhile, my re-telling of Camelot has been niggling at the back of my mind.
It’s been over two years since I came up with that idea for the capstone class for my undergraduate degree, but I kept thinking about it over the past month or so, and when I realized how dissatisfied I was with my current project, well, the switch seemed natural.
So, this week I pulled everything I had on the Camelot story and read through it. Some of my ideas came back to me. I did character sketches of the main five characters and outlined the first five scenes. I also came up with a working version of the Sentence—Holly Lisle’s one-sentence story outline technique—to keep me on-track. I’ll start actually writing this week.
