Good Morning 2nd of October 2019

Good morning folks! Probably just a quick post this morning as the day job is calling.

I have been writing over the last couple of days, not necessarily hitting the 1000 words though. Yesterday and Monday I did, with Monday passing 1800 if I remember right. I’ve switched to another project as I got a bit bogged down in CS1 and the words have really been flowing. This new project is a lot darker than CS1 and seems to be flowing more easily, but I will be swinging back into CS1 soon as well.

Working on multiple projects is something I really need to get back into. I find I write better when I can jump between projects and it’s something I’ve not done enough of recently.

I’m not neglecting the fact that NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. I’ve started some brief notes on that and will be picking that up more over the next couple of weeks.

That’s it for now, folks! Have a great day all!

It begins!!!

Good Morning, Sunday 29th of September 2019

Good morning, Folks! Just a quick little post here today. The 1000 words a day mission crashed on Thursday, on Friday I knocked out about 500 and yesterday, nothing. A couple little life things got in the way, plus forgetting laptop and having a low battery on my phone didn’t help either.

Today though, I’m going to get back into it. I’m a little anxious about getting the 1000 today as a lot of what I’ll be doing today will be finding places to merge scenes in, but I’m hoping that’ll help fire up some fresh words for the day.

Right, time to get stuck in. Have a good day, folks!

25th of September 2019

Good evening, folks. I’ve written 1021 words today. Much like yesterday I cracked out most of those words in about 30 minutes this evening that I had spare.

I’m kind of writing snippets of scenes at the moment. Little bits that I know I need to add but I’d like to really get my teeth into some of these scenes. A couple I think are really good but one or two feel very ropey.

I do need to sit down and transfer these scenes into the main file and find where they fit and how that leaves me and what I’ll need to do next.

It does feel like I’m moving forward but not quite as well as I’d like.

Right, that’s me done for the day. Have a good one, folks!

24th September 2019

Just a quick post tonight. I’d only written a couple of hundred words before getting home today, and I didn’t have a lot of time spare this evening to write. I still managed to hit the 1000 words though, okay I only got 1002 but that’s still passing target.

Today was one of those days where I didn’t have time before work to write and not much time during my lunch to write either. This evening I had about half an hour at the extreme most. So I put my earphones on and wrote until I had to stop and was pleased to see I’d passed target.

I’m wrapping this up now. Have a good one, folks!

I was listening to the Armcast podcast today, I had a few episodes backed up, and aside from there being some damn fine episodes recently (it’s always good, but Armand Rosamilia has had a string of really good interviews recently), but as I was listening today it’s made me realise I’ve been slacking big time recently. I’ve got into my head that I haven’t had time to write. That I’m editing and need time to sit down and just focus on that. So, in other word I’ve been making bullshit excuses for myself.

So today I’ve put a boot up my own butt and am going to get back on track. From here on out I’m aiming for a 1000 words a day. Because of how I’ve slacked off I’m not going to be able to hit my minimum target for words this year. I can do that while editing, CS1 needs a lot of edits and rewrites and scenes added so I’ll be able to get those words added easily.

Just over 500 words during my lunch break.

With the fanfic piece, well that’s going to be my reward when I hit the 1000 words. I haven’t done anything on it tonight because I’m wiped out. I’m going to watch another episode or two of Disenchantment and then read a little and then bed.

I listened to Solo on audiobook last week. Mur Lafferty did a fantastic job with this novel.

I do have NaNoWriMo coming up as well, and I need to pick up my pace for November.

And today I started The Big Head by Edward Lee once I’d caught up on Arm Cast.

 

Good Morning, Sunday 22nd of September 2019

Good morning folks. Today is what I’m thinking of a ‘get shit done week’. I have got a lot of general sorting out to do that needs to be done soon due to a few changes that’s going on. Some of it is things I should of had done ages ago but I’ve this bad habit of putting things off. I can’t do that this week.

So I’m not expecting a whole lot of writing to be done but I am going to do what I can and when. Most of this sorting out involves working through my old writing files. I’ve been writing since I was about twenty one (although have only been serious about it for a few years now). So I have many years worth of files to sort out. I’ll admit, a lot of it will be destroyed but I’ll keep a draft of everything I’ve written. Especially those that I don’t have digital copies of. When I switched over to Apple a few years ago I might have lost some of my older work (I don’t think I did) but I still want to keep at least one hard copy of what may be in that chaos of filing.

In addition to all the writing stuff I’ve got to work through I’ve got non writing paper work to clear through and just have a general sort through and tidy this coming week.

So I’ve got a busy one coming this week. I’m going to do a software update and then get a few hours of work done on CS1 this morning. After that the big tidy starts, as I’m watching the new series of Disenchantment.

Good evening, folks. Today I wrote 1080 on the fanfic piece (a few of them were done yesterday). The next week or so I have a lot of sorting out to do, which includes old writing files. It’s something that needs doing and nows a good time.

I am still thinking through elements of CS1, but I need to sit down and collect all my notes on it. I’m going to try and do that this weekend.

I am super wiped out right now, so I’m off to bed. Have a good one, folks.
