Writing Update: Challenge #3

I had a pretty good writing day last challenge day (previous update) but I hit a bit of a road block after that.  I only wrote a little for the following two days and the I did no writing at all for a few days.  Life is busy, as always, and my daughter is currently …

Writing Update: Challenge #2

I’m still going pretty strong with my writing and, if I am to be honest, I am quite proud of myself.  Considering my limited writing opportunities, I think I am doing fairly well. For the 6th and 7th of November I averaged 1800 words per day.  Then on the 8th I had another writing challenge …

Writing Update: On a Roll!

So I decided against doing NaNo this year.  I have never done it before and I was worried that the pressure of writing 50k words in one month would reduce my enjoyment of writing, especially since I have been enjoying the balance I have in my life at the moment. That being said, I am …

Feeling quite productive today! I’ve added another 2,500 words and finished chapter 7. The words seemed to just flow today! I’m well into chapter 8 and I feel like I’m getting into the exciting part of the story! Definitely motivated to continue, but I ran out of time.

Writing for today (and Twitter)

I haven’t had a lot of time to write today. I spent the morning doing the short story prompt response and catching up on all the things on my reader. This afternoon, my daughter decided to have yet another one of her half hour naps (no more 2 hour ones like she did for a few …

Making Progress!

So I put my daughter down for her nap and thought… I don’t really feel like writing.  And then I remembered all those times I’ve been told “write anyway!” and “you can’t just wait until you are in the mood to write!”  So I opened up my latest chapter and read the notes I left …
