Sometimes, the things I do distract me and I forget to hop over here and do a post or a ROW80 check-in. Oops! But I’m here now, so that’s something.
I have pretty good reasons for not being here last week, too! I was busy making this:
I’m also working on creating a couple of classes and a retreat, so it’s all sorts of exciting in my world! It’s distracting, though, as I mentioned. I’m not getting to as much of my personal story writing as I had hoped. But I’m learning how much I can fit into a week, and I hope that’s going to help me make regular space for writing again.
Meanwhile, even though I’m still not finished with outlining and planning, I intend to start writing Inheritance on February 2. That was the plan, and I’m going to stick with it. If I don’t have an outline, I’m okay with that. I at least have the anchor scenes planned out from doing Sufficiently Advanced Magic with Alastair at StoryWonk. It’s probably enough. It’s definitely enough to get me started, especially since I’ve been spending some time getting to know my characters better. With them feeling more like real people to me and a basic view of my biggest scenes, I think I’m ready to go.
Next week I’ll be putting up a word counter for Inheritance. If you see that it’s not moving, give me a nudge! We can all use that little helping hand, right?
So what about you? Where’s your writing life right now? I hope the words are flowing!
See you next time with a report on actual words written!
