Up to week 2 on ROW 80. I am a freelance developer, which means work comes in waves. I had a long time free to work on writing and this week started in with projects again. I enjoy projects, but it means shifting time again and figuring out where writing fits. I think I am doing well with it so far.
Sunday: 1100 words written on blog posts Hamburg Speicherstadt and a post that will go up on Displaced Nation later this week.
Tuesday: 1 hour of editing and 250words written
Wednesday: 1200 words written and 15 minutes of editing
So I am on track for the week. A shame that most of the words written were not on my mainline novellas. I had originally thought I would not count blogging in my “words written”, but now I will. Today I wrote a fair amount, but on a different story. I seem to keep opening up projects when I need to be finishing them. This one is a set of short stories based on the Story Prompts at SelfPublishingPodcast and around the early life of one of Crossing the Dropline’s main characters, Jason.
Overall I am finding my creativity again. I spent a few hours reading an awesome webcomic with talking animals call Beyond the Western Deep. I like the storytelling in it. Hoping to learn from everywhere. The rest of the week may end up being a wash. We have guests for Easter weekend, but we shall see. It may be a good time to ruminate.
Remaining: 3.75 hours of editing and 2700 words to write.
