Writing

I just wrote 25 pages in longhand in three hours. I think that is pretty good for me. I grabbed my Pepsi and blank pages and sat on the floor in the bedroom and wrote, till my pages were filled. I need to stay away from the tv. I am a flipper and will sit for hours just flipping from station to station. Do I want to watch tv or finish my book. I really want to watch tv, but that nagging voice in my head wants me to write, so I write. Nothing is on tv. I am not missing anything, and I do feel better after a write and meet my page quota.

So do whatever you need to do, to get your words on paper.

What is your writing rountine????

Writing till finished

Writing is easy. You put pen to paper or fingers to key board. Finishing is hard. Editing is hard and time consuming. So you have to push yourself to keep writing till you write The End. I write in long hand. Then I type it into the computer, I do realize that it takes longer but that is my process. I keeep writing, everyday. The thing I do when I have a day off, I take my pen and paper and go into the bedroom, away from the tv, and sit on the floor in the bedroom and start writing, till I made my page quota, my butt gets sore, but I am writing and then I allow myself to go and check my e-mail. Do what you need to do to be able to write The End.

What do you do to make your daily page quota???

Still Writing

I finished another writing class, online. I am in major rewrite mode. I have more conflict and am aware of showing and not telling. I am so much more aware of what I have to do now. My story hasn't changed, but it will be so much better once I do the rewrite.

I was up early in this morning. I sat on the floor with my pepsi, paper and pen and wrote 18 pages in longhand. I would not recconmend this, cause my butt got sore, but I did accomplish what I needed to do.

No matter how or where you write. Just Write.

Writing

Sorry I haven't posted for more than a week. I have been busy with my writing lessons and have just finished the last one. I have learned a lot. I think that it is imporant that everyone takes a writing class, lots of them out there. and they are not that expensive. I am taking another class in April, so I have three weeks to write before I start my class so I will be working on my novel. So hang in there and keep writing.

I just turned my assignments in and I need to be writing and not surfing the net. So my goals this week are. To write, no matter what.

Spring Yet?

I am so tired of winter and being cold. It is now March and if you can forget it is tax time...Spring is right around the corner. Yea!!!

I have started a new class on line. Showing VS. Telling and I need this so much, so I am excited about this new class.

My goal is still to write 1,000 words a day. I wish I could say that I do that everyday, but I don't. I do think it is a good idea to have daily goals, weekly goals, monthy goals and yearly goals.

I need to stay focus and have something to look forward to.'

What are your goals????
