I'm hopeful for the coming weeks.

Saturday, April 14, 2007


The reason is here.

Don't worry, Joey, I can do the last 60 pages before May 31. Somehow. Dunno when.

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

I wrote the final scene last night- couldn't sleep. I like having the last scene down- I know where I'm going.

I also did some calculations and spreadsheet tweaking, but no science actual writing- calcs got derailed when I realized I left some key numbers at work.

221 rough plotting, but I may have found a path to get from the middle to the end.

Only 303 for the week, but a lot of handwriting in the notbook, so hopefully I'll have some numbers for next week.

Thursday, March 15, 2007

No words typed up today, but I index carded the first half of act 2, so I'm pretty happy about that.

07 plan

Here's the deal. I don't write well, or efficiently. Just about any career path from where I am right now requires me to do so. So, I need a praactical way to get myself into shape.

Last year, blogging probably helped, but it got to the point where it started surplanting worthwhile writing. So this year, I have a plan. Not too amitious, so it should be achievable.

The aim is 2000 words per week. Doesn't matter what, as long as it is a paper medium designed for public consumption. If it works, then I will have written 100k by the end of the year.

So far, though, all I have is this:
week 1: 0
week 2: 2291

50 weeks to go.
Well, as I'm sure y'all can figure, nanowrimo was a miserable failure. So, instead of jumping on an overly ambitious bandwagon, I'm going to have to find a better way of making myself write. more coming soon.
