On Monday, April 16, I was officially 4,000 over, but Tuesday I hit a depression and anxiety wall causing a major writers block. I haven’t written since tonight, and it’s just story notes for chapter 3 &4.
I hate how I instantly felt like the world was against me and it felt like I left my interesting characters left in the door.
Our (many not nice words) landlord is snapping, yelling, and complaining over issues we can’t control. Grrrrrrr. They can go. . . (Filling in not nice words again.)
I have to do a list of chores and errands and now my head is full of ideas. . . My muses are talking, my character are acting scenes I should be writing at the time I need to sleep.
- to have chapter 3 done by tuesday.
- Have chapter 4 done by Sunday April 29
- Word count by April 29 35,000
My plan. . .
- Notes, obliges, scene ideas tomorrow
- Saturday to Monday type up chapter 3
- Wednesday notes for chapter 4
- Thursday to Sunday type up chapter 4
It’s not even day 15, and I’m up 16,905 words.
I don’t write much on Fridays. Happy Friday 13th btw.
So I can’t write until Saturday.
I’m just happy I’ve been able to cook, see doctors, do errands and get that many words down. Dances.
I have a dream of being a successful published author in multi genres. I have different pen names for each.
However I’ve ran into several people who think that writing is not a realistic dream.
To be honest, writing is the major thing I am still alive. . . whether is was writing a grocery list, a journal for self or therapy, or a story. . . I feel most myself when I put words on paper or a screen.
I cannot express how truly important writing is to me. (So important that I am writing through hands cramping and pelvic pain when I sit down. I mean I can go months, even years without sex, but I cannot even go a day without writing.)
I CANNOT be with someone who does not support my writing dreams.
If you don’t believe in art or writing as dreams or that I will be successful with my writings, please move on. I do NOT need negative people in my life.
I met to write this yesterday as it 10:36 am on Day 8, but day 7: I have written 10,105 words.
I gave myself a goal of 30,000 in 30 days.
So I only needed 7,000, but I love being a head. It would be even more awesome if I finish the novella or get 50,000 this month.
I wanted to write over 500,000 words in a year. . . However I also need to find time edit, cook, and do my other errands.
My sleep schedule and my muses motivation keep inter-passing, but I still 10,000 words. I could only imagine what when happen when my sleep schedule and muses work together. Maybe I’ll get 10,000 in one day. I think my record was 12,000 . . . I wrote a chapter and a half.
It just seems that my muses like to write between 1am and 6am, but lately I have been been falling asleep around 11pm. However if I have errands. . . I barely sleep. GRRRR My mind and body work against me. . . Sigh.
I plan to finish chapter 1 today, so I start a new chapter in a new week.
I’m writing an adult piece since most of my muses keep pushing that way.
I working on the title.
I plan to publish but not under this pen name.
My goal is 30,000 word by April 30th which is 1,000 per day. Its a reasonable goal with my health.
I’m writing my colored notes and outline now.
Good luck to my fellow writers.
- Internet which can be a list of distractions
- Facebook stuff
- Looking websites
(I can give myself internet time for reward for reaching a certain number count. Note: buy a timer or use a timer on tablet.)
(Writing sprints during commercials if show doesn’t re-air. If the show re-airs, then watch it later, write first.)
- Depression/anxiety/worry (write out feelings)
- Nightmare or dreams (twisted them into stories)
- Sleep issues (if you can focus write or write notes)
- Pelvic pain (see a doctor soon.)
- Hands: swollen/ painful joints (Writing sprints and take breaks)
- Errand (bring notebook for notes, scenes outlines etc.)
- Friends (notebooks or write before or after visit.)
Note: not I have possible fixes there are no excuses
I haven’t been on as I have been writing Short Stories.
I have been writing over 7,000 words in the last 80 hours . . . it’s a good pick up from being in a writer’s back from October to January and part of February. However I have so many idea for erotica. So my muses Zoe and Starre have been very busy.
However I plan to write next month . . . doing Camp NaNoWriMo . . .
November is National Novel Writing Month,I’ve won 8 out of 10 years.
I set next month for 30,000 words, which is a 1,000 per day. I believe I can do that.
Now I need to
- List all ideas I want to work with
- Cut list down
- Outline and notes to each ideas
- Research what I don’t know.
I am hoping to write book of adult short stories, and I hope to sell it.
I have gotten so many positive reviews saying that I am good writer so I hope to make a living with it.
However I will be publishing in another pen name still working on it.
