Writing Journal 9.8.2019: Plenty of writing, but slow progress on the OPs (original projects)

This week I took a mental break from my original projects (OPs for short) to start back on my new hobby of fanfiction. It wound up taking up a good majority of my writing efforts this week.

I’ve recently discussed where I’m at or not with the recent projects. This week I did the most with Project S2, I guess I’m calling it, and Project B. (Here’s the full list once again.)

The one thing I might say is how I’m seeing FF as opposed to my OPs. Writing is a part of me, a part that is central to my identity as almost any part of me or my personality. I see my OPs as my art, the way for me to express myself creativity.

As for FF, I see that as more like a hobby than art. Obviously I don’t intend to monetize any of those writings, but I do want people to read them, enjoy them, and give me feedback on them. I love telling stories, even if they’re variations on those told by others. And it’s also another way for me to flex my writing muscles, which is good for me.

Three items:

  • I included another shot of one of my bookcases for the featured photo today. Give me a shoutout if you see one of your favorites
  • The stats for last week:

+10,863 words written.Days writing: 7 of 7.

Days revising/planning: 1 of 7 for 30 total minutes.

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

  • Long story short, more writing and less revising from last week, and I’m keeping things consistent.
    I’m looking for a good professional proofreader, especially someone who lives in Iowa. If you are one of those or know one of them, reach out to me – I’d appreciate it.
