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!

This was not a great writing week. I planned five sessions…and only did one. I’m making some changes to my schedule to see how that improves things, though. I also wrote two book reviews, which is also fewer than normal for me.

There’s obviously room for improvement!

 

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 #51

Well…writing didn’t go quite so well this week. I only got in two writing sessions. No book reviews written (because I haven’t finished reading anything this week.). But…I DID finish one of the timelines in my King Arthur story, so there’s that.

To be fair…writing got pushed to the side in order to facilitate me finishing up a big personal goal that I’ve put off for basically eight or nine months. But the really time-consuming part is behind me, and I should finish it this week, so yay!

 

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!
