A busy day and a ramp-up on the writing.
Meetings from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Then groceries, then back to the WMG Publishing offices to work on Smith’s Monthly until 7:30 p.m. Home to cook dinner and watch news and do some e-mail. Then with the idea of getting a lot done, I moved to the writing computers.
Managed 1,200 words in just over an hour, and it felt like the novel was going to pick up speed just fine.
11 a.m. took a break and planned to come back at once, but it didn’t turn out that way. Took an hour long nap, then ended up watching television. Didn’t get back to writing until 1:30 a.m.
I managed 1,000 words, then took another short nap. Again very tired from trying to move my schedule back into place. Managed another 300 words before tossing in the towel at 4:30 a.m.
But honestly, tonight is better. Schedule should be back in place in the right times by tomorrow. And novel is picking up speed. Mystery novels always start slow for me normally.
So 2, 500 words tonight. Ramping up. Slowly.
(Same as Last Night) I will be sending out the first letters for the September online workshops in a few days. The two new workshops that started in August, Character Development Workshop and Career Workshop have both gone well from this side. August workshops are on the fifth week and final assignments.
All ten of the September online workshops have room. A good time, going into September, to work on your writing in some fashion or another.
TOPIC OF THE NIGHT: Nothing tonight
Way too tired. But if you want a stunningly good essay on writing, go read Kris’s blog. Any comments or questions on it, feel free to post them here.
