Normally I title these posts with a big ‘Good Morning’ but I really don’t feel that energised at the moment. It’s not been a great week. Let’s do the highlights first: War For The Planet Of The Apes. Fantastic movie that really took me on a ride. It was very well done and a good way to wrap up that trilogy. Matt Reaves has directed the last two movies in this trilogy and I am very happy he’s at the helm of The Batman. Another plus point was seeing the new Defenders trailer. I was extremely excited watching this, but those last few seconds had me bouncing up and down! And I think I’ve made as many notes on how to fix my zombie story as I can.
To the bad now; I’ve only written 2536 words today. I have edited as well because the fan fiction piece is part re-writing and adding new scenes but also editing what I’ve written already. That said, I would have liked to have at least hit the 5k for the week. The worst part of the week has been the death of Chester Bennington. I will write a post about this because of the importance of Linkin Park in my life.
This week, I’m going to turn it all around. I’ve been incredibly sloppy with writing for a the last few weeks. I should have made more progress with the Fan Fiction piece, so I’m planning to have it done by the end of the month. This draft at least; it still feels a little like its in a bit of a mess. So once it’s done I’m going to print it off and have a good read through it. Once I’ve finished this draft I’ll be back onto the zombie story and get that sorted out and aim to have it done by the end of August.
My word count for the next week is 5k, which is my unofficial weekly target, but I’m going to go hard today and try to hit half of that number. So I’ll check back in tonight and give an update.
