Work in Progress Wednesday
I actually have progress to report this week! Yahoo! :) I was in such a slump after my grandfather's funeral a couple weeks ago. With the travel and then the recoup time when we got home, I just didn't get much writing done at all.
And then this last Saturday, a bunch of writer buddies and I got together in one of the chat rooms at RallyStorm and had a write-a-thon. Basically, we write for 15 mins and then chat for 5 (or 10) :D then write for 15 more, etc. It really helps get the creative flow going and is fun to boot. And it got my momentum back in swing!!! I have done so well this week, even wrote about 4000 words on Monday alone.
Life is good :)
Though, when the time comes to type this thing up...well, let's just say it will be interesting. Here is a snapshot of one of the pages....
It's not a great shot...you can hardly see all the arrows flying all over :D Luckily, not every page looks like this...some look worse :D
In any case, I am now 4 pages from filling this notebook (pen count 4...just started with #5) - which means I've got roughly 30,000 words and about 100 typed pages. So, I am very happy this week. And I'm going to finish those 4 pages no matter how late I have to stay up tonight!
Think my daughter's teacher will understand if I write my way through our Parent/Teacher conference today? :D
