Keeping on going


Today started badly, after a night of bizarre nightmares (again). This time, none of them were particularly fiction-inspiring, so that’s a shame. It took me a while to shake off the bad night, but once I did, I made sure to knock out my thousand words. The Perfect Garden now has a few more words to it – hurrah!

A good day


I sat down to catch up on my writing today, and I think I did pretty well. By the end of the night I was a bit tired of working on the same story (The Perfect Garden: Blooms of Summer), but I am rather surprisingly a one-project pony at the moment, so there we go. I wrote 2488 words (in around an hour, best estimate) then 2113, and then I did a little editing on The Cold Light of Day because I needed a world-switch, and then I spent about four hours watching TV and writing another 417 words to bring my total up to a nice 5018 for the day.

I wanted to make up for my few lost days, and I’m pretty pleased with how that worked out. I’m now back on track for my 31k target in January, if I keep working on it. So, yes. Today has been a good day.

(…Especially since I got to see my cat reacting to a flurry of snow outside the window. He was quite perplexed.)

It’s no excuse, but…


I’ve been having some computer issues today (hopefully not serious) and have only got 529 words done. I still have a lot of catching up to do if I want to make my January target! I’m sliding this blog post across the line just on the dead of midnight, then rushing off to back everything up in its current state, just in case.

Also, today I got some cute new glasses. Expect a new icon soon!

Back from my break


Well, I’m back! I spent a lovely few days catching up with some old friends from my former university, exploring my old stomping grounds, and generally remarking on how much had changed and how much hadn’t. I also didn’t write a single word apart from the 1199 I wrote on the train to get there (before I started feeling travelsick), but it’s hard to regret that because I had a wonderful time.

Of course, I intend to write as much as possible over the next week or so, to make up for it, but for tonight I’m going to relax.

2015 total so far: 24519 words.

So much for that plan…


Well, my ‘more productive’ day petered out at 615 words, in the end. I’m away for a long weekend – almost a week, really – so it’s likely that I won’t be updating the blog during that time. I will, however, have two very long train journeys to occupy myself during, so I’m hoping to get a bit done then.

A productive day…


Today I went for a walk, watched a lot of telly (oops), made a few edits of animated characters crossing over into each other’s stories, and wrote over 1200 words of Blooms of Summer. Perhaps my focus was not entirely where it should have been, but I’m still pretty proud of myself.

I’m hoping to get a little more done tomorrow, as after that I’m going away for a few days and I don’t know how much I’ll get done. That said, I’ve probably jinxed myself now. We’ll have to see how it goes.
