i know i've thought of a bunch of things i've wanted to post at various times over the past few days, but the only thing i can think of right now to say is that i've been continuing my writing streak, writing for at least half an hour every day, for 20 days now, and i've written 500+ words on every day except one, when i got home late and i was just too tired. but still, i wrote 300+ words that day. and i am extremely close to being finished with the first draft of my long-languishing ss/hg wip. i'm so excited about that. i've actually written the ending now; i just need to go back and check wherever there is a @@@ and see if there are still missing scenes or if it's ready for the revision process. i'm quite excited about this. it's 70,000+ words, which makes it the longest thing i've written. very excited. :D
so i had read half of that book 'write fearlessly' and reached the part where he talked about fear of finishing, and that is what kicked my butt into gear to finish this thing. well, then i quit reading the book for some reason, but i picked it up again the other day, and actually, it was a better time for me to read the next part now that i'm writing again, so maybe that's why i quit for a bit, lol. it's an awesome book, and now i really want the other one of his that logospilgrim
recommended, writing in overdrive
. it's on my amazon list now, just need to wait until i can spend some money on books again, lol.
and in a fit of insanity, i believe i've decided to sign up for nanowrimo this year. i probably won't play to win it, but that last time i did it, it did keep me writing every day, even if the word count is pretty ambitious given the amount of time i have to write each day. i'm thinking i might aim for 1000 words a day and see how that goes. it feels awesome to be writing again, even though i have no idea how the words are, let alone the story, lol. thank goodness nobody has to see it until i do a rewrite. ;)
and that's it for me tonight. i hope you are well.oh, also, the heat finally has broken here, thank heavens. today i was walking outside at around 4pm and it was lovely, and there was a breeze. *happy sighs*
