It has been a really good week this week. Just not so great writing wise!
My goals are:
1) Read two books a week in order to read 100 books this
2) Spend 30 minutes a day, five times a week on
writing related things. Prep, reading notes, research and writing all
3) Write a ROW80 check-in
I just started reading book number six of the year so I am a little bit behind but still chugging along. I need to STOP BUYING BOOKS especially on my kindle as it is so easy and I have a pile of books on my shelf that I need to read first. We will see how this goes.....
Monday - started strong and wrote 1,042 words during the ROW80 sprint on Monday. I finished off the break up scene and felt the words were flowing well.
Tuesday - I wasn't feeling well so I read sprint instead of writing but am not sure how much I read.
Wednesday - read 10% of a book for half an hour of the sprint.
Thursday - nothing
Friday - nothing
Saturday - nothing
Today - check-in and....nothing!
So as you can see it hasn't been great. I need to think about the week ahead but more about that in the minute.
Once I press publish this is done.
Now once again I feel I need to think about where I am going with my writing. I have three current chick lit WIP's and I will point out my issues with each one:
WIP 1 - Finished writing this one, 50k in wrong tense, love story premise but not sure I wrote it in the right way. Unedited.
WIP 2 - NaNo 2012 project - half written but not sure of plot. Really like one aspect of the story and think this aspect in a better story could be good. Hope that makes sense!
WIP 3 - Nearly 60k written of Matchmaker Matchmaker from CampNaNo 2012. Again not sure of plot but love the main character so don't want to stop writing about her.
I feel a bit dissatisfied with all three WIP's at the moment, even the one I have finished but not edited. I feel like I need a bit of direction. So, I am going to put my thinking cap on about what to do and plough on with Matchmaker Matchmaker as I do like the story and I might be using my doubt as an excuse not to write. I guess my aim is to polish something up to actually submit to agents etc but I am not sure I have that perfect story yet but again it could be the doubt monster!
So here is to a better week although it is my 30th birthday on Friday so I have plans on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday so it might not be my best ever week! Hope you have all had more productive weeks then me!!
