In the final week of this challenge to myself, I was able to do this! I wrote EVERY DAY of this week, including today, starting on Monday.
It was really nice to write every day. Sometimes I only wrote a little, like one paragraph, but still, I WROTE. And other days I wrote pages and pages of stuff, like on Monday and Tuesday.
Mostly it has been work on my YA novel for my college fiction class, but also I have done a little bit of work on my outside-of-class fiction works.
It feels really good.
I’m so happy to have completed this goal! I just hope that I can continue it and that this habit won’t die next week. I still don’t have a firm schedule for it, i.e. writing at 5 pm every day or some such, but I hope to sit down to write every day. :)
Thanks for the cheers and everything!
This goal is going well. For the past couple of days I have been researching and writing character profiles for the characters in my YA novel for the YA writing class.
Also, ideas are still flowing and I am still in the mood for writing my other, non-school related novels.
So, things are going well! I will soon move on to the actual writing of this YA novel. :D
Wish me luck!
Ahaha…not a lot of progress on this one so far. Not at all, not at all. shakes head sadly
BUT…I am switching from a poetry class to a writing class, “Advanced Fiction for Children and Young Adults.” This class requires me to write at least part of a novel geared towards kids or young adults. Main character must be between 9 and 17 years old.
Luckily, I already have an idea for this story! :D Huzzah!
I just hope that it doesn’t become another unfinished, abandoned novel, or another add on to my “works in progress.” >_< I hope to finish the novel during the class. It’ll be like NaNoWriMo, except writing the story in a few months instead of just one.
Let me tell you, I take a while to write. I’ve been writing one novel since 2004! So writing a novel by May would be a big achievement for me. I hope to do it for the class; I hope writing a novel for class won’t distract me from my other novels.
Wish me luck! :D
You see, I’m writing a novel right now – actually, two. I decided I wanted to be a writer when I was 11 (8 years ago) and have been writing stories ever since.
In 2004 I started a fantasy-genre novel, and have been working on it, and I keep hoping to finish it. I have not much going on this summer, so far, but already summer is disappearing out from beneath me. But nevertheless, I would love to finish my novel this summer, so in light of that, I hope to write every day – to keep the creativity flowing in my mind, and ideally to write, say, 500 words or even only 100 words, on my fantasy-genre novel. My other novel can wait. :D
As for poetry, I usually only write it when I am feeling something very intense…but it is also a good thing for me. It makes me feel more peaceful and contemplative. So I’d like to write more poetry, too.
