#IWSG: Camp NaNo and other things

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

Camp NaNo has ended. I won this time. I was able to get an outline done for Town Curse which I’m still working on. I have also come to the conclusion that I need to go back and write better outlines for my other stories. Also, need to create character sketches for my characters. I have never really done that for them before and realize it needs to be done.

I spent a couple of days in July creating new scrivener files for my novels because I plan to start from scratch with them. Still have the old ones to use as sort of a guide until I decide I don’t need them anymore. Though I most likely will never get rid of the old ones because you never know when you might realize that the old story is actually the one you want to use. So, we will see what happens.

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

 

#IWSG: Camp NaNo and other things

Life has been interesting since the middle of June. I started school and have been writing but it’s been weekly assignments that have to be turned in for my classes.

It has been a time of learning to balance everything so I can get things done like my own writing. I think I’ve finally reached a balance where everything is coming together and working like it should.

I decided to go ahead and do Camp NaNo this month and it’s actually working out well even though I haven’t updated the site with my word count yet. I’m using camp to work on Town Curse and surprisingly I’m finding that I’m writing more now that I’m writing for the classes I’m taking. Β The routine of writing everyday for assignments that are due has helped me to get a little more disciplined with my own writing.

 

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

 

#IWSG: Writing…

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

I couldn’t decide what to write about this time. The writing is going well. I love the direction I have decided to take the vampire series in and the change of the main character. The fantasy novel has grown a lot with just the list of characters alone. I may look at getting rid of some of them when it’s Β time to revise. Not sure all of them will stay because they really don’t fit the story even now but I’m not going to stop writing it. Will make those decisions about them after the initial draft is done.

Hope to add fun new things to the blog over the next few months. I’m sitting down this week to plan out posts and possibly new pages to add that will be entertaining to everyone. πŸ™‚

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

 

 

 

 

 

#IWSG: Camp NaNo and more….

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

Camp NaNo is over and I didn’t hit my goal. That’s okay though. I’m still working on the story and it’s coming along. Definitely can say that I won’t be participating in Camp in July as I will be in my first term of graduate school. I have decided while editing/revising my vampire series that I’m going to take it in a little different direction and the main character has changed at this point as well.

I’m writing new outlines for it and some of the other stories including the epic fantasy one I started on last year. Some of the new directions occurred as I was adding words and revising a couple of them. So, a couple of the stories have been started all over again to fall in line with the new ideas for them. It definitely has been interesting is all I can say.

I have realized I’ve been neglecting to write on here a lot in the last few months or so and that is going to change starting soon. I plan to add the things I’ve been talking about for awhile like the game videos of myself playing Lord of The Rings Online, a series of posts about fantasy and paranormal genres, updates with possible snippets of my writing, and tips (like what my routine is, etc).

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

 

 

 

#IWSG: Camp NaNo and other news

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

Well Camp NaNo has started and I’ve written a total of about 1000 words but those have been review posts for the site I writeΒ TVΒ  and movie reviews for. I plan to get some writing done today on the story I’m writing during Camp.Β At the beginning of April I took some time to look at the projects I’m working on and decide which ones I wanted to finish in the next couple of months because of how far into the story I am with them. Some of the others are barely started so they have been moved a little lower on the list. I’ll work on those when I need a change from the must get done ones.

Also, at the beginning of April one of the things I was working on that I called a secret project for now is going to start soon. I hadn’t wanted to say anything until I got the confirmation I was waiting on. I’m going to be attending Graduate School for my masters in English and Creative writing with a focus in fiction. My classes will start this summer. πŸ™‚

The other secret project I hope to unveil in the next few weeks or so as well.

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

 

 

 

 

 

#IWSG: New projects

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

The last few weeks of February were busy in a good way. I have a couple of things I’m working on kind of behind the scenes you could say. I’ll fill everyone in another time about them when I have news to share. You could say they are my secret projects. πŸ™‚

Writing on all the projects are going great. A little frustrated about one of the stories and how to work in a new plot twist. It sounds good when I talk about it out loud but putting it to paper and the section I want it to go in does not.

Question for everyone. I’m thinking about starting a facebook group. My question is would it be a good idea to have both a group and an author page? I already have an author page. Should I just stick to it or think about creating the group too?

IWSG Question: Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?

I haven’t pulled out a really old story per say. What I did was to pull out a list of story ideas from a few years ago and look it over. I have set up files for three of them so I can start outlining them. One of them is possibly going to be posted here as a serial for the site. I just need to figure out how often I’ll post it and what the word count for each post will be.

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

 

#IWSG: Writing and Word Count Goals

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

Afternoon everyone. I’m so sorry I nearly forgot about this month’s post. Have been busy the last few days cleaning up my desk and moving things around so that hopefully the writing goes better now that all my projects are in one place instead of scattered around the room. πŸ™‚

I’m working on creating a newslettter so look for the sign up box to go up soon. Also, working on some fun posts that I hope to have posted soon.

The writing is going well not like I want it to though but that is okay. I’m still writing each day which is good. May decide to do away with daily word count goals and just write each day and whatever count I reach I’ll be happy with. The goal is to write everyday anyway so I think for me trying to have daily word goals is something I can’t do because I get frustrated when I fall short of the goal for the day. I’ll still have monthly goals to try and stick to but get rid of the daily ones that way no matter what I’ll be happy with the writing I accomplish at the end of the day. πŸ™‚

That’s it for now.

Look forward to your comments. πŸ™‚
