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.)

So much vs Sleepy Time

I feel like I am a chaotic tangled ball of yarn. . . I have all of these ideas entangled together. . . and with my not synced sleep or lack of sleep it has been hard to focus on one idea of the time.

All my muses wanted my attention today. . . I got about six hours of sleep in two choppy sessions, but it was enough to seem to have woken all of my muses from their deep vacationing sleeps. Introduction: My Muses. . .

I am happy I do not have writer’s block. I love having the extra time.  I think I am going to make a list and try to work as many projects as I can while my muses and I are awake enough to focus.

  1. Blogs: Personal/writing/Naughty
  2. Letters and e-mails
  3. Novella Chapter 6
  4. Diaries
  5. Finish Reading “Grey”
  6. Work on “foodie” project
  7. Short stories

However I need more sleep than six hours in two divided choppy cycles.

If you need me I will be working on some kind of writing. Yay. raw

Going on in March

I am very happy that many people are liking my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/Rebekahquinne
and liking this blog. . .

I hope to post a few pieces this weekend.

What is going on. . .

  • I have been helping friends with babysitting and remodeling their house when I am not writing.
  • I’m also very addicted to coffee.
  • However now I am working not one but two projects. They are quite the opposite in style. I would call one an erotic thriller, and the other a bloody epic tale.
  • I also am trying to discipline myself to make sure I write something everyday and get to post on this blog at least once a week.
  • I’m also trying to read and research more.
  • I have been and I still am working on recovering from some personal issues. It’s been a rough six months. I hope to write a story or two from it.

I’m giving myself daily goals. . .

  1. Excerise daily (whether it’s you tube or just a walk)
  2. Write something everyday
  3. Read something everyday
  4. Eat better

 

People Series: Non-supporters: Questioners

2. Questioners.

They are people who keeping asking questions about your work and when you plan to get publish that they start to make you doubt yourself. Then you start to question yourself.

  • Is it really stable to make money writing a book?
  • How long do you think it will take?
  • Did your editor get all of your mistakes?
  • Are you sure you going to finish this?
  • How many publishers have you talked to?
  • Are you sure you want to do this with your time?
  • Are you sure you enjoy this?
  • What is is about?
  • Haven’t vampire, werewolves, ghosts, sex etc been done to death?
  • Are you sure it’s good?

The questions that really get to you start with “Are you sure” those are the questions that plant doubt within you. . . make you question yourself.

  • Am I good enough?
  • Will I get get published?
  • Will people actually read and like my work?
  • Should I really be writing?

Doubt goes into guilt and then guilt goes into fear. . . and next thing you know you are in therapy with writer’s block.

You need to let yourself know that there will be these people in your life. Use them to keep things in check instead of letting it get to you.

Instead of doubting yourself try to use the questions and making then into goals.

Is it really stable to make money writing a book? It can be, but you can do side jobs or part time work to have some money so you can write as well. You also make money writing. . . there are online contest for short stories or some magazines that take articles.

How long do you think it will take? It depends on how inspired you are and how determined you. Make mini goals. . . like within the first two weeks to have up to chapter 4 completed or a certain word count.

  • Did your editor get all of your mistakes?
  • Are you sure you going to finish this?
  • How many publishers have you talked to?

Just deal it when it happens. I do recheck my and other work, because I am that much of a control freak.

  • Are you sure you want to do this with your time?
  • Are you sure you enjoy this?

You would NOT be doing this, if there was not some kind of enjoyment in it. If you enjoy something, then it is NOT a waste of time.

What is is about? If you have to explain your story; they are not listening or they are confused.

Haven’t vampire, werewolves, ghosts, sex etc been done to death? Write what you like or know, others will enjoy it too. They are cycles in their fads. . .

Are you sure it’s good?

This question is worst question out of all them. . . this is the one that causes the most doubt. You need to break yourself from the haunting voice that echoes this question in your head like a very bad ghost. When you are writing do NOT think about how good or bad it is.

When writing draft one ultimate goal is to finish the work/novel/story etc.

Focus making things better to understand and to read when you edit your work a million times over.

Again do not people like this get in your head, just use them to help your goals and focus.
