Writing Report – Week Ending 06 November 2016

keyboardThe targets were as follows, stolen right out of the last Writing Report:

  1. 10,000 words of fiction, any way to the number.
  2. There are 10 chapters worth of second draft left in Scattered on the Wind. Going for it.
  3. I’d also like to get 8 chapters worth of revision notes done on Draugr Rising.
  4. Short Story Submissions: 1, because I need to get back into the game.
  5. Stretch Goal: finish the outline for Fallen Heroes.

The achievements, however, were a bit different. Last week was tough for spare time, and the weekend flew by. I got a little done, but not a lot.

  1. 2,683 words of new fiction. There was a novelette finished in here and a single scene on Shrine.
  2. I managed to get through two chapters of second draft on Scattered on the Wind, so that leaves eight.
  3. I only managed two chapters of revision notes on Draugr Rising as well.
  4. Submissions = 0.
  5. Didn’t even touch the outline for Fallen Heroes.

 

You’ll notice there wasn’t a target on non-fiction, but I shoehorned 1,638 words of that into my writing week, in the form of 3 blog posts and 0 book reviews.

I like how this works, even if I didn’t make a single goal for last week.

So now we need some new goals for this week:

  1. 5,000 words of new fiction, any way to the number. This is a reduction, but might be a stretch. I don’t see this week as being any less busy than last week. I am hoping for a little more focus, but we’ll see what life brings.
  2. There are 8 chapters worth of second draft left in Scattered on the Wind. I’d love to get them all done.
  3. I’d like to get 8 chapters of revision notes on Draugr Rising.
  4. Short Story Submissions: 1. Let’s try this again.
  5. Let’s try the Fallen Heroes stretch goal again.

 

Tune in next week for another update, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.

Be well, everyone.
