I wanted to write in November, but I actually only got 1500 words completed. However, one of my resolutions was to write for 30 minutes each weekday morning, which I’ve done faithfully. This morning, I passed the 10,000 word mark. I’m 1/8 of the way there and still feeling very positive about the characters and flow.
I noticed this morning, too, that I have three goals about writing, so I’m going to streamline. I’ll give up on this one, mark “Start writing again” as complete and leave “Finish my novel” on my list. 18 months ago
How I did it: Beginning with an idea which I had for some time, I made a basic outline (which is allowed and I highly recommend). Each day, I would think about and “play through” the section I was writing; some days I wrote one scene, other days several scenes; whichever was necessary to make my daily word count. And I always tried to finish a scene if I began it.
How I did it: joined NaNoWriMo.org and started thinking about my story. I intended to pick up an old story and finish it but it just didn't happen....sigh
today. I want to drop in, meet someone else doing this. 21 months ago
Summary notes will be fleshed out. I hope to get another big session or two done!
Then I will turn to Ratty and whisper quietly I love you. She is my muse and needs to hear this as much as I need to say it. 21 months ago
20 pages single space. I didn’t do the word count. It’s a BUNCH. I’m really in training now. Dedicated, disciplined, singly focused. 21 months ago
Nano really is all about the discipline of sitting down and writing. But it’s no good if the rest of life is undisciplined and Nano is the only theme.
For the next month I will get up and writewritewrite, before, during and after breakfast.
I vow then to walk walk walk, at lest two miles, hard core, and then to shower and find her, all before the crack of noon.
I vow too accomplish one solid, meaningful home repair, fix, step-of-progress each day, to increase my income, and to eat and rest appropriately so that the long term well being is strengthened rather than diminished. Finally, I vow that my commit is complete, in all, especially to her, that I will use Nano to further us as well as continue us. 21 months ago
I’ve a plan, a muse, a purpose. There is no try, there is only do. 21 months ago
I’ve begun keeping a novel journal about some ideas I’ve had—character descriptions, scenes, chapter lay-outs and so forth. I’m setting the goal of having a good roadmap in place by November 1 so that I can get a first draft on paper during National Novel Writing Month. 23 months ago
