Sometimes, the things I do distract me and I forget to hop over here and do a post or a ROW80 check-in. Â Oops! Â But I’m here now, so that’s something.
I have pretty good reasons for not being here last week, too! Â 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. Â I’m not getting to as much of my personal story writing as I had hoped. Â 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. Â That was the plan, and I’m going to stick with it. Â If I don’t have an outline, I’m okay with that. Â I at least have the anchor scenes planned out from doing Sufficiently Advanced Magic with Alastair at StoryWonk. Â It’s probably enough. Â It’s definitely enough to get me started, especially since I’ve been spending some time getting to know my characters better. Â 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. Â 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? Â Where’s your writing life right now? Â I hope the words are flowing!
See you next time with a report on actual words written!
