Sundays are for Writing #83

This was a good writing week. I wrote three book reviews plus my Best Books I Read in July post. I did a couple of lessons in the Maggie Stiefvater class and wrote a short outline of the first chapter of the story I’m editing. And, I got in two fiction-writing sessions, so I’m happy with my writing this week.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #82

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.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #80

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.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #79

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.

Happy Writing!

Sundays are for Writing #76

I’m happy with this week’s writing escapades:  eight book reviews, story snippets/character development for the new WIP, and several lessons in Maggie Stiefvater’s class (including a very intriguing revelation on the first thing she decides on for a new novel). And I’m gearing up fora major revision that I’m pretty excited about.

Happy writing!

Sundays are for Writing #60

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!

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 #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 #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).
