My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working.
This is going to be a quick because it’s late Tuesday night and if I stay up any longer my update will be full of fghjfghjfghjfghjfhgjfhgjfhgjfhgj because I’ll have slept so soundly on my keyboard.
So I did work on my fiction, but not according to my goals. After my talk with Kait, I took all of her suggestions plus what I wanted to happen in the scene and wrote up an outline. It was good to have those ideas in front of me because I’m the type of writer that gets a bunch of ideas and then can’t get anymore until what’s in my head comes out.
The follow-up to that scene had some more action in it, but I was never totally happy with it and planned to fix it when I got there. Imagine my surprise that while I was thinking about my outlined scene, an idea for the next one came to me and I liked it so much better than what I originally wrote. I really want to dive into this, which brings me to the reason why I wasn’t so productive goal wise.
I’ve been told that I write a pretty good post (Thank you very much to everyone coming by to see what I’m up to) and having a schedule at the end of each one has had a very positive effect on this blog’s growth. I highly suggest if you’re on a posting schedule, make it known and if not, try to work something out that you know you can keep up with. The reasons why are for another post, but suffice to say it will be very beneficial.
Anyway, in keeping up with my schedule, I’ve been writing usually a day or two before the post is set to go up. They don’t always come fast and by the time I’m done, I don’t have a lot of time left. Since I’m doing a series this month and have all the topics picked out, I think I can get further ahead of schedule. Then I can designate a day to write my upcoming posts, leaving me more time during the week to work on my fiction.
There’s probably some other things on my mind, but I’m almost out of steam. How’d everyone else do?
