Writing Journal, 11.4.2019: Status quo

Hi, sorry about the delay. I’m feeling a little bit better than yesterday, and got through work, so that went OK.


There’s not too much to talk about for this week. I did more writing than planning this week, even if it was fan fiction. It’s still giving me some ideas for Project F, which seems it is becoming more of a thing. I’m on the verge of picking out names for places on a map. Pretty soon I’m going to start making characters with names and then I’ll really be cooking. 🙂 Either way, that’s going to end up being big.


Still waiting on the proofing of my Project A, and then I’m going to have to start seriously shopping that around. I would like to get that published, because I’ve easily got enough ideas to tun that into a three-book series at least.


Everything else is on pause for right now. I’m trying to trick my brain into working enough from week to week. When I’ve been living a certain way with a certain person for 20-plus years and then the entire apparatus is turned around, that can throw someone off. Everything’s OK, but everything is changing and that is weird getting adjusted to, from my wife not being around too much for a while to the start of my kids not being around at all.


In some ways, I’m eager to get the transition over with, because even though the kids will be eventually doing their own thing, I’ll be with my wife on a new adventure. Patience is not something I have ever been good with, and waiting for a year is something that was guaranteed to drive me nuts. But I’m getting through things OK, honest.


OK, here’s the numbers below. Basically, more words written, less planning, and one day I just goofed off. (There’s already one day this week where that happened, so don’t be surprised when you see it next week.)


+6,920 words written.

Days writing: 6 of 7.

Days revising/planning: 3 of 7 for 90 total minutes.

Daily Writing Goals Met (500+ words or 30 minutes of planning/revisions): 6 of 7 days.


I keep on promising some sort of midweek article, but those deadlines keep flying by. Eventually…
