A Busy Week… Not Writing.

Standard

Hi everyone,

Well, I’ve written a bit of fanfic this week but I’ve been so busy, tired and – frankly – emotionally drained that I haven’t managed to get a lot else done. I did go and see the new Beauty and the Beast on Friday, so that was a nice day, but other than that I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather since my last blog post. Hopefully I’ll get back to work on my original projects in the coming week.

Talk to you soon!

A week of few words

Standard

Hi everyone,

I’ve written relatively little this week – 3861 words, mostly fanfiction – but I’ve been working pretty hard on some world-building for A King’s Ransom and working out some projects I want to get back to. Was I running this blog yet when I started writing The Cold Light of Day? I think I was. I always meant to get back to it, and then life got in the way, but I’m bringing it back into my rotation of WIPs.

I’m also going to set about learning the tricks of self-publishing, partly because those will be useful transferable skills and partly because it might allow me to put out new releases more often. We’ll see how that goes.

Talk to you soon!

Change of project

Standard

Hi everyone,

Sorry I didn’t get around to posting again during the week – I’ve still been a bit under the weather. For several days, I didn’t write anything, which I’m a bit upset about, and on a few other days I just wrote some fanfiction for  a Les Miserables week on Tumblr. But the important thing is that I haven’t stopped writing completely!

Over the last week or so, I’ve switched focus from the sequel to Submerge – a series I think I finally need a bit of a break from  so I can recharge – to A King’s Ransom, which is still new and shiny and exciting!

Over the last two weeks, I’ve written 4814 words. Hopefully I’ll be back on form this week…

Talk to you soon!

Fanfic break!

Standard

Hi everyone,

Sorry – I really did mean to update more often (and do more writing) but life keeps getting in the way in the most unavoidable ways.

Today, however, I came close to my daily word goal by writing 475 words of a random fanfiction that sprung to mind. Sometimes, you just need to play with somebody else’s toys for a bit.

Total written today: 475 words.

Talk to you soon! I just… can’t promise when.

Not much done

Standard

Today I didn’t get much done, because my beautiful niece came round to smile at me. And other people. And occasionally grizzle a bit because she’s getting toward the teething stage. But mostly I have been grinning and pulling faces at a baby all day, so I didn’t get much writing done. And what I did was fanfic. Oh well!

Total written today: 44 words.

April total so far: 1827 words.

2016 total so far: 25501 words.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Beautifully sidetracked!

Standard

So, it’s Camp NaNoWriMo time and I totally had a plan. And then I ditched the plan (to work on my Austen rewrite) in order to write fanfiction instead. Oh, hush, it’s all words. And I wrote more today than I’ve written on any day since the 15th of January. So… worth it. A change really is as good as a rest!

Total written today: 1783 words.

April total so far: 1783 words.

2016 total so far: 25457 words.

I should write fanfic more often…

Standard

I got a lot of writing done this evening! I’m starting Camp NaNoWriMo tomorrow (though I can’t guarantee I’ll entirely focus on Serious Writing), so I wanted to just do something light-hearted and short. And… well, 604 words into a new fanfiction in a new pairing in a new universe, I’m exhausted and calling it a night.

Total written today: 604 words.

March total so far: 3437 words.

2016 total so far: 23674 words.

Talk to you tomorrow!
