Word sprint, the exercise I like. 

Sports I like basketball, baseball, volleyball, football  (American) etc

Sports I like to play volleyball. 

I love to exercise my brain. When writing a novel, I do it alot. I do word sprints. 

 (Word sprint is writing as many words as you can in a time limit, 10 minutes, 20 minutes even up to an hour.) In groups, at the end they write down the amount of words, and cheer each other on. There are NaNoWriMo groups, twitter sprint groups, and Facebook groups.

I have a word sprint ritual.

When I do sprints on my own. (I get a bag of day old Halloween candy.) 

:00 to :25 word sprint

:25 to :30 break: eat candy,  write notes, bathroom if need

:30 to :55 word sprint

:55 to :00 break: eat candy,  write notes, bathroom if need

I usually do this for 2 to 4 hours or when I reach my daily goals. It depends on scenes, what errands I have to do for that day. I love written exercising. I trying to out do my  best rewards. 

20 minute sprint: 673

25 minute sprint: 698

30 minute sprint: 821

60 minute sprint: 1129

Shortest time to reach 1000 words was 45 minutes, when we did a reverse sprint. You give a word limit and you write until you reach the limit. (Nanowrimo daily goal 1667 per day.)

Written kitten.com is fun every hundred words a picture of a cat comes up. They have a puppy one as well. 

I don’t like it but there is writeordie.com(but if you can’t keep up it will start to erase work.)

 

More about my muses

I thought I had an intro on my muses. . . I guess I either dreamed typing it or it got lost in my other blog.  However mention them several times in my other blog https://rebekahwolveire.wordpress.com/2015/09/26/my-muses-are-still-on-vacation-eh/

https://rebekahwolveire.wordpress.com/2014/11/19/nanowrimo/

Yes, I found my intro. https://rebekahquinne.wordpress.com/2016/10/19/introduction-my-muses/

Many of my muses are hard at work with each project. . . It’s like they have a business meeting in my head.
The main muse is in-charge of each project. . . they also supply the coffees and doughnuts for the extra muses who come in to give their 2 cents.

Rebekah is my essence so to speak.  She is the leader of all this and is not usually mentioned, because she usually in her office, unless in meeting.  She the CEO with the full glass windowed office. Her desk is three times the size of everyone’s desk. Her coffee even taste better, whatever flavor she wishes to have to have that day. Today, it is  chocolate caramel.

Jack is my main guy for research and history. . . he is always busy and is usually at every meeting.  He’s trying to relate facts, or at flashbacks of character stories in my novels.  He usually he and Rebekah are my main muses in control, especially with my blog.  However Jack’s nose is currently in “Grey” By E. L. James.  Come on, Jack, we have so much more to write and read.  Besides you are hogging the tub while reading the book.

Kelly is Rebekah’s assistant when Rebekah needs it.  When not reviewing Rebekah’s work and getting her coffee, Kelly working on blogs, organizing things, outlines and character profiles for each major story. Her secret passion is is to marry rich and have someone else do this for her.  She works will when writing romance, fantasy, and screaming  horror. (Luna and Mary will have Kelly read their work to see if it scares her. If she screams, then they pull her in and work on it.)

Luna and Mary are the youngest of the group and  they love good twists, suspenseful turns, and to jump. The more they are scared, the better.  They love when Jack talks about the Urban Legends he reads.  Luna wants to sci-fi, but Rebekah just doesnt know if she wants to get into that genre just yet. She loves being in paranormal, occult, and horror.

Sandy, Emma, and Chlorine are all dramatic in there own way whether it is gossip, lies, rumors, or pranks. Sometimes if they were out of each other’s business, they would make the ultimate chaotic characters.

Zoe  retired and gave her creative genes to her younger sister (by another mother) Starre. Starre is a very busy and naughty girl  trying to keep up with all of the adult fads and her many suitors she uses to try them.

They all got called to a main office as I have my computer working.

Rebekah is trying to get them back to work. (Look at my previous entries. . . I have lists of things to do. https://rebekahquinne.wordpress.com/2017/10/08/1714/

However it is 3:30 in the morning and all work will continue when I wake up in the afternoon.

Prompts

It’s funny . . . I can list prompts for my blogs, but when I go back to look at the lists of prompts, it just feels like work. Or I am not in inspired. 

Then I feel empty, lacking motivation. 

It always when I am wide awake.  

However when I’m exhausted,  almost comfy in my bed do I figure the right prompt to write in my blog. Sigh.
Does this happen to anyone else?

New Writing Series: Dealing with People

I’ve learned a few things about myself and socializing over the years.

  • I really don’t think I am that good it (socializing). I always feared of saying the wrong thing growing up.
  • Now that I am older, I believe in the truth; this show who my real friends are and who can handle me, and sometimes who I can handle. (if that dress doesn’t work for you, I am not afraid to say so.)
  • I speak more when I am drinking, but I do not drink a lot. I have health issues and drinking can really mess those up.
  • I am really more anti-social as I get older. A part of it is that I don’t want to put extra energy into a friendship in which I will just used. Another part is I do like my own time for reading and writing.

So I do majority of my socializing online. I am in many writing groups. I am very social in October just before NaNoWriMo.

I have learned there are groups of people once you tell them that I writing a book or stories (and that I dream of being a famous author) . . .

I deal with each differently.

It’s not good or bad. I try not be a b**** or brat. . .

I try to treat everyone civil. (Yeah, I have my mood swings and can get jealous and cranky. It’s usually just my imbalanced hormones.)

This is my series. . . the different people I deal with as a writer.
