I’m planning for March

February 27, 2014 at 12:39 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

March is supposed to come in like a lion, right? Well, that’s the plan.

Actually, the plan is to have February leave like a lion, March come in like one, then leave like a 7-headed chupacabra beast that was created in the nightmares of Ray Harryhausen and and has since be tormented, starved, and deprived of all chocolate. I think it’s safe to say, March is going to end like a BEAST!!

Something came up where the previous writing became editing, but all good. Forward progress on the writing, be it putting words on the page or editing those there is the goal and hey–sometimes the plan has to be altered. Organic plans, that’s me.

Sending you all juju for happy writing.

Marathon, Sprint, One Step

February 6, 2014 at 8:03 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

Yes, I know–I missed yesterday. Three nights of poor sleep will do that to you. Speaking of which…

Writing is a marathon, I think we’ve all heard that and I believe it. Granted, not everybody’s marathon is the same length, but for the most part, it’s a marathon. Sometimes you can sprint. I did that Monday with my 3K words. (I think my record for one day is 9K, but for me, those are few and far between.) Then there are days you take one step. That was yesterday.

I wrote one page in my page-a-day project and that was it, but that’s okay. It was one step, and one step forward is my minimum goal for any day. Could be a sentence, could be a paragraph, could be a page–it’s a black-and-white issue to me and a win for one sentence is a win for 9K words.

My goal for today is any writing, 1K at the least, I hope. I think I can do that. So, time to write.

P.S. On Tuesday I did write 1380 or so, so let’s round up to 1400 words. Better than nothing, so the day was a win.

Super Writing Powers–Activate!!!

February 3, 2014 at 7:42 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

Hello and happy February!

I’ve got an easier real-life schedule this week, so I’m going to take the down time and put it toward my writing. I’ve got a project I need to finish and I want this week to be some energy for that last push. I figure it’ll also get me back into blogging, so win-win, right?

So is anybody else starting out February with a goal or two?
