Hello Weekend Writing Warriors. I’ll be back very soon.
Through this writing journey, I’ve learned a tremendous amount about myself. I’ve learned what can push me past my insecurities. I’ve learned what makes me weak. I’ve learned what it takes to keep me going.
Just like the introvert in me needs down time after an outing, the slowpoke in me needs a recovery period after insane activity. BUT, it’s time to get back to work. After the craziness that was my March through the first half of April, it was time to get back to the languishing WIP.
I probably should have gotten back to work last week, but if I’d pushed before I was ready, I might have suffered through a bout of writer’s block. I also know that if I don’t kick myself into gear, this phase of not working on my WIP will linger. 😦
Here’s to fingering out what works for us and getting it done.
The Goals – week-4 results
- Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- almost done. I have gotten reacquainted with Jane and Rob, but I didn’t get to them everyday.
- Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- almost done. I went through all the notes from my beta, made changes, listed the scenes to add, and started working on the first new scene.
- Take care of and be kind to myself (start w/ a relaxing ritual, the healthy journey, and daily breaks from technology)- done. I even worked out THREE times. This is huge for me. I can’t remember the last time I worked out more than twice in a week.
