Two Weeks Outside and Still Going…(From Yesterday)

I can’t believe how fast time is flying.  I can’t believe the last entry I posted was May 5th.  I had just started going outside the house for my writing times back then.  It’s two weeks later and I’m still going strong.  The Outside time is working.  I’m progressing with my writing projects, my goals.

This week is the last week of school for my two older boys.  A lot is happening with school including a Kindergarten graduation for my middle boy – the 5 year old.  Book reviews are due this week as well about fifteen in all.   A lot going on.

Yet, I will continue to step out and take that writing time.

I am working on two scripts (15 pages each) that I want to submit to the Writer’s Digest Competition this year.  I have given up on submitting two short stories like I had planned.  I feel like it might be best to focus on the scripts and get them in the best shape ever.  As I work on the scripts, I am developing sever

Things are moving along pretty well.

I should get back to those book reviews.  I am getting sleepy.  Time is limited. 🙂

Wishing all you ROW80ers a wonderful week of words and accomplished goals.

Outside

It’s been good to get outside this week, parking myself at a cafe to write.  With that, there’s been lots of progress – pages of a screenplay written.  With the pages, that falling in love feeling again — with my story, with my characters.  Though I skipped this morning’s writing time, I am planning on tomorrow night’s writing time outside — possibly at the Barnes & Nobles, a mile away from home.  The goal as always is to be consistent.  Doing something for 21 days creates a habit.  That’s what I’m hoping for.

Sometimes the writing seems endless — the end goal, far, but having these writing times makes me see that I can reach that end goal.  That I will finish a draft.  It is possible.

Of course, my life hovers around me — there are only three weeks of school left — and plenty of school activities and events that will take up the days.  Book reviews to write, a personal business to build but I will not despair.  Despite the busyness, stress and anxiety, I will keep the faith.

I believe these voyages outside the home to write will help me with that.

Wishing all you ROW80ers an amazing week of words and progress.
