I can’t believe it’s April 28th. Has it really been almost a month since my last post?
The month has flown by what with a hectic book review deadline, kids’ school activities and a long weekend away in New York City which has left my writing competing for a spot in my schedule.
Things are settling down though and the writing is picking up. I am not where I want to be when it comes the goals – that consistency thing – but I’m still striving for them.
My goals are as follows:
1. Write 500 words or 20 minutes per day. (Creative)
2. Complete 60 pages of a 120 page script. (Creative)
3. Draft work of short fiction for the Writer’s Digest competition in June. (Creative)
4. Work on my paranormal revision: 30 minutes a day – Tuesday, Thursday, Fridays and during scheduled Writing Times.
In the last few days, I have been accomplishing goals #1 and #2, mainly by combining them. I have decided to take my writing time to another level and have it outside the home instead of in, and that, so far, has worked wonders. Now, I only started this weekend, so we’ll see where that leads, but it’s been a good start.
Goal #3 has been modified a bit — instead of short stories, I am working on submitting at least 2 scripts to the Writer’s Digest Competition. I’m excited about this because these scripts are what I’ve been working on this weekend. I just need to submit approx. 15 pages. In working on my screenplays have renewed that love I have for writing screenplays. It’s been great.
Goal #4 – nothing lately on this one. Soon, though.
So it’s been a good end-of-the-month. Of course, there are two more days to go but I feel pretty confident that this upswing will continue. I get to have another writing time outside of the home tomorrow night so I’m excited to see more progress.
Wishing all you ROW80ers an amazing week of words and progress.
