#IWSG: Getting back to my writing routine

06 May

Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

April has been interesting when it comes to the writing. I have been using my gaming pc to try and write while I waited for my new laptop to arrive. It finally arrived last week. Now, I can get back to the writing and bring my word counts back up to where they usually are. The gaming pc is great for the gaming I do and the streaming I plan to start soon. There is something about a keyboard on a laptop that allows me to type a lot faster than I do on the gaming keyboard. I do back up my writing to the pc though so I have everything in two places in case something happens. I haven’t been posting my word counts to Camp NaNo this month. I have made good progress on book 2 of Thornwick Chronicles and on the story for the anthology. I plan to post my word count later today for Camo NaNo to see if I met my goal or not. I decided to not keep track of my word counts or set a goal this month just to see how I felt when writing everyday. It felt good not to worry about word counts and just to write. I feel like I accomplished a lot more writing that way.

I will be updating some of the pages on here in the next couple of weeks with things like character bios and information about the anthology and other writing related things that are going on with me. Let me know if there are any writing topics you would like for me to post about as well.

That’s it for now. Look forward to reading your comments. πŸ™‚

    Glad you’ve been writing and you have your laptop now. I do better on my desktop. More focused I guess.

      Hi Alex, thanks. I use my desktop to play my games and stream. I use a laptop to do the writing and writing related things so I can keep the two separate and not be distracted. πŸ™‚

    I’m currently writing on a laptop with a broken hinge (it stays open all the time bc I’m afraid to close it. LOL). I want a Mac next, so I can get Vellum and start formatting my own books. Maybe this will be the year.

      Hi Melissa, I totally understand. I want to get a Mac as well in the future because I want to use Vellum to format my books. πŸ™‚
