Writing Journal 7.1.2018: Not the best ending for last month

Sorry if anyone was actually waiting for me to post today. 🙂 Anyway, here’s the stats:

+930 words written.

Days writing: 1 out of 7.

Days revising: 2 out of 7 for 120 total minutes.

Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of revisions): 3 out of 7 days.

So, yeah… that wasn’t how I planned on wrapping up the month. Not too much of an excuse this week – just didn’t dedicate myself enough to it.

What’s up with the writing projects?

  • I’ve gotten some good feedback on The American Nine manuscript. Currently, I’m going to have it beta read by some members of my local group. I’ll let you know how that goes.
  • I promised you at least a quick entry about the writer’s conference I attended last week. Since I didn’t attend too much of it, it will be a quick entry for sure. That will likely get posted tomorrow or the next day.
  • Just a reminder, kids; Make sure that you save all of your writing in more than one location. That way you avoid accidents. Currently, most of my projects are being saved in five different places (main hard drive, two external HDs, a flash drive, and on Google Drive).
  • Had a thought – If I planned to write a trilogy, would it make sense to write it all at once as Tolkien did (after the fact) with Lord of the Rings? That might be something I try for another new project.

That’s all I can think of for now. More later.
