Writing Journal 2.9.2020: Spinning wheels but keeping busy

Well, I’ve had sort of a similar writing week as I did last week. Not horrific by any means but not something to cheer about, either. So, I’ll keep things quick.

I got a watch that belonged to my grandfather, so I decided to make that the featured photo for this blog. Just because, not any other grand reason.

Project D (Game of Thrones fanfic) is going slower than anticipated. (Check this out for a full explanation of the projects.) Probably has something to do with the fact that I’m well over 100,000 words on the project and I’m only halfway through it. Hoping that I will have more time over the summer to get the rest of it written, although I’m continuing to write on it throughout this week and currently.

Project F (my OC fantasy project) is still in the planning stages. I’ve gotten tied up in the naming strategy for the societies in the story. I’ve been on several sites and several name generators to get some ideas, and I’ve already been building up a name bank of some possibilities. It’s been taking a while, however.

This is the obligatory “I think it would be a great blog idea to write about this” but then I wind up it doing it until 2-3 weeks later.

I’m getting to be such a lazy presence online. I know I should be promoting myself, this page, the Facebook and Twitter handles, but I’m getting mentally worn out just trying to find cool writing stories or memes to share. I’m also a little pissed at Facebook deciding to just accept any political advertising even if it wasn’t truthful, despite everything that has been happening during the elections from 2016 on. Stephen (The) King just quit Facebook over it and I’m beginning to wonder if I shouldn’t do the same. I am definitely looking to reduce my time on Facebook any way I can, deleting the app from my phone for about the fourth time in six months.

Here’s the stats. Have a good writing week.

+2,687 words written.

Days writing: 4 of 7.

Days revising/planning: 4 of 7 for 210 total minutes.

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