Good Morning 12th March 2022

Good Morning, Folks!

I hope we’re all well?

I am up, I’m almost awake and very nearly ready to get writing for the day. I have an online write-in with my local NaNo group this morning and I’m hoping to be able to get some strong progress with this zombie ending rewrite. I’d really like to be done with it in the next couple of days and get that scratched off my to-do list.

My desk chair recently broke so I’m using a folding dining table one, and boy is it no comfy! So I’m hoping this’ll spur on the urge to get as much done as quickly as possible, while still retaining the quality. Wish me luck with that one!

I’m also itching to get into the edit passes of the other stories that are screaming at me. So again, I’m eager to get Zombie wrapped but I can’t rush it and need to make sure the quality stays there. That’s what I’m trying to focus on at the moment. Making sure it’s gripping, that the reader can’t take their eyes away from the words. I’m anxious I’m not pulling it off, but until it’s done and typed up and I’ve let it rest for a week or two I don’t feel I should be judging it. Even then that’s when I need to send it off to Beta readers and see what their thoughts are.

Okay, I’m off to get cracking. The write-in starts in half an hour and I’d like to get next week mapped out before that starts.

I hope you all have an awesome weekend. Even if it’s chaotically busy try and make a little time for a little self care and some time with loved ones.

Rock on, folks!

Ko-Fi

4th of December 2021

I was going to have an off day, let some more of upcoming projects process but I ended up writing about 200 words.

Typically those words flowed really well now that NaNo is over!

Right, night all!

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Thirty

The last day of the month is being wrapped up with 414 words, and a lack of satisfaction. Next year, I won’t let this happen again.

I do have some bits and pieces to work with, but it’s not been how I’d have liked it.

Signing off on NaNoWriMo 2021 with a whimper and not an explosive end.

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Twenty-Nine

Good evening, folks! How are we all doing this evening?

I’ve written 331 words today. Um, still feel like I’m hitting my head against a brick wall but I’m quite proud of the fact that despite how hard it has been at times to write this month, I’ve still managed to get some words out.

I think some of it is my creative well needs to be refilled. I’ve recently watched Nobody Sleeps In The Woods Tonight, and it’s sequel. The first one was very good, but I wasn’t as keen on the second one. It didn’t feel as sinister as the first one. For me it focused on explaining things a little too much, and made it not as engaging as the first one was.

Speaking of movies, I’m going to pop into Grand Theft Auto V Online for half an hour and then find something to watch.

Have a good one, folks!

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 28

368 today. It wasn’t like pulling teeth like it has been lately. I think I’ve found something that I might be able to get my teeth into.

I’ll be happy to hit 30,000 by the end of the month.

NaNoWriMo 2021 day 27

Only about 200 words today.

I just feel a little brain dead when I look at the stories. Maybe doing shorts wasn’t such a good idea, maybe I needed something I can really get my teeth stuck in.

Maybe that creative fire has died down too much and it needs some fuel put on it.

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day 25

Good evening, Folks. Only 569 words today. But some nice growth in the story I was working on. There’s a couple I’ve been working on that are beginning to take shape nicely.

I did find it hard to get my head into writing today. I just couldn’t really get rolling nicely. I did like what I wrote, but it too a lot of work to get to where I wanted to today.

The problem is I’m eager to get stuck into editing on preexisting projects. I think that’s where I’m needing to spend my creative energies.

Right, short and sweet tonight. I’ve got an early tomorrow so I’m going to do a little popcorn, watch a movie and then call it a night.

Rock On, folks!

NaNoWriMo 2021 Day Twenty Four

I wrote about 1100 or so words today before running out of steam.

I liked what I wrote but I think it’s going to need some major fine tuning during the editing stages.

Tomorrow will be a snatching words as and when I can day, as will be the two days after that. Very busy with the day job.

My new desk setup, which is now in my bedroom. It’s still a bit of a mess and it’ll need tweaking but I think it’s a good start 🙂

NaNoWriMo 2021 Update (23/11/21)

Good evening, folks!

Just a little update tonight. I am at 25080 words for the month, which means I need 3283 words a day to hit the 50k. I’m not going to try and hit that. I think I could, but I’m not going to push myself that hard. I strongly believe that when you get behind it can be quite daunting trying to catch up. Even though I’ve only written 1344 words words today from here on out I’m just going to try and write the 1667 words a day. If I get more, great, if not. Not the end of the world.

Right, short and sweet tonight. I’m wiped and gonna get my head done.

Rock, on folks!
