Yeah - OK - so I didn't blog last week about my writing success because I had none. I had a ton to do with prom, teaching, and softball. So week 3 - ZERO.
Week one 4,200 words!
Week two 2,322 words!
Week three zero
And this week 4! And what did I accomplish on week 4? Nothing ... OF MY GOAL.
I actually did a lot of noting, organizing, and creative thinking for a new manuscript idea. I was listening to that song by Lady Antebellum - Dancing Away with my Heart and this story popped into my head. Since then, for a whole week I have been envisioning Jack and leading lady (don't have a name for her yet). And while I meant to work on my draft - I just couldn't get them out of my head. Has that ever happened to you? Where you get an overwhelming idea for a story and it's like a movie in your head? I see them. I know their personalities and picked to write down these thoughts before I lost them. Will I actually start writing this idea and forming it into a draft - not right now, but I can't lose the small things or big things because I know that I will be pissed when I go to write it and can't remember it.
So week 4 - zero for writing.
On a non-writing goal - I saw a lot of people do some personal goals on here so I am adding one - I have been slowly becoming a runner. I put on my awesome person costume (see here for a reference - ps -this girl is hilarious - what voice!) and went running this morning. I absolutely HATE running. Someone should be proud of me. :)
This week's resolution! - I am going to write 3,000 words for the rest of ROW to make up for my giant amount of slackerness. (As a writer do you feel you can make up words? I call it wordsmithing! :) )
Besides a new novel idea, I got to meet the awesome Lia Habel at my Reading Council's banquet. A post about that will be up tomorrow if you want to stop back and here about this lovely lady!
Also, I am looking for people who want to guest post on my weekly feature = What's Your Take. You can write about anything you want. It can do with writing, reading, blogging, trends, anything! And it's a good way to spread your name around! Email me at mf060784 at gmail.
How about you? What was your writing week like?
