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.
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.
- 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.
