Not Writing in Public

8/21/14

Fiction Word Count: 0

I usually write the WIP blog posts right after I finish writing that day’s fiction and then schedule them to post the next morning. After I wrote on Wednesday, I had planned to get up early today (Thursday), jump right into writing and finish at least 700 words.

Well, that didn’t happen. In fact, it’s currently after 9 pm and this blog post is the first thing I’ve written all day. What’s my excuse? I don’t have one. I wish I could tell you I was in the hospital, like I was last week, or some other legitimate reason for not putting Ass in Chair. But, alas, I can not. Laziness and procrastination got the better of my today.

All I can say is tomorrow (Friday) is another day. I hope to wake up early and hit the ground running, but I’m done making promises.

Writing in Public: Day 7

8/20/14

Fiction Word Count: 240

I wrote 240 words in about an hour yesterday afternoon. I know to most people that’s painfully slow. But for me, that’s right about my average. Today I’ll start a new writing routine. I plan to do a two hour session in the morning, and another two hour session in the afternoon. If everything goes right, I’ll exceed my 500 word goal for the day. And hopefully I’ll hit 700, maybe 800. Tune in tomorrow to find out how I did.

As far as the DVD Extras, I’m just trying to get things set up for the big showdown. Then, of course, the story’s conclusion. The story passed 3200 words today. I think It will end up being just over 5k.

Writing in Public: Day 6

8/19/14

Fiction Word Count: 373

I did two writing session yesterday. The afternoon session netted 142 words. During the evening session I was able to write 231 words. In each session the story flowed a little easier the more I wrote. This is, of course, why I’m trying to write every day. The more consistently you write, the easier it gets.

As for the story, it’s seems kind of choppy to me. But I’ll fix that in the second draft. And surprisingly, it’s heading in the direction I want it to go. This rarely happens. Usually the characters do something I don’t expect and change the story somehow. But then again, the story’s not done yet.

Welcome to my World…
