That’s my fun day

Posted by on Apr 18, 2010 | Comments Off on That’s my fun day

Three days running I have achieved my goal! I think next weekend I will increase my daily words, but for this week I am going to leave it at 1000 per day and see how it goes. I finished the scene that I have been working on last night, and thought of an interesting plot point that I am building in. Nothing spectacular or story altering, but an intriguing addition that helps build the richness of the world and at the same time gives a deeper sense of one of the main characters. I’m having a good time writing these last few scenes that I’ve been working, although the writing...

Rainy Day Blues

I made my writing goal for two days in row! I didn’t quite finish a scene but I reached a good stopping point and decided to leave something to continue on with today. I realized while I was writing last night that one of the reasons that I am having so much trouble finishing up the story is because most of the scenes that are left don’t really have any action. They are mostly character development scenes with lots of dialog so they tend to feel the same especially when written one after another. A lot of the character development filler that I’m writing now might even be edited out...

Dreams of Lycanthropy

Hurray! I managed to achieve my goal last night, so I am now 50/50 overall. I finished up one more transitional scene, leaving me with twenty-four more left. I think this works well for me, having goals written down where they can be fretted over later if I don’t accomplish them is a good motivator for me. My temptation is to throw caution to the win and up my words because it’s the weekend. Just so I don’t get too far ahead of myself though, I will try for another 1000 words tonight. I also made my magazine spread last night. It’s actually more like a brochure I guess, for the San Diego...

Electric Sheep or Incendiary Pigs?

Posted by on Apr 15, 2010 | Comments Off on Electric Sheep or Incendiary Pigs?

Well I almost made it half way in last night’s adventures! I wrote close to 500 words, which is not that bad for me since I didn’t feel like writing at all. I finished off one scene and wrote the transition to another. That leaves *counts on list* twenty-five scenes left. A few of those are rewrites of scenes because of some plot changes that I’ve made along the way. Some of the scenes are very short or just the tail ends of scenes that are already written. All in all I really don’t have very much left, perhaps seventy-five pages. That will put me up around 350 word processor pages which is...

The Beginning

Posted by on Apr 14, 2010 | Comments Off on The Beginning

Anyone who knows me even slightly knows that I suffer from manic bouts of creative energy that ebb and surge more often than the tide. I am overcome by ideas and hurry to realize them before the energy to complete the task leaves me. Today I want to paint, tomorrow I will probably want to write and the next day I might want to bake homemade lemon bread. The day after that I might want to learn how to crochet for all I know. In this frazzled and disjointed frenzy not much ever gets accomplished aside from frustration. I am sure that most creative people deal with this issue, but somehow they...
