About ditching my timers, hidden story versus backstory, progress!, and goals.
Yay! I’ve been writing today. Nowhere near the amount of writing I wanted to do, and my only excuse for that is distractions, but it’s nice to NOT be struggling to sit down and write. One distraction of note is my new mealtime schedule. I’m still trying to lose some of the weight I gained … Continue reading Writing and an experiment with mealtimes
I started an experiment four days ago on Friday (see the post). Fri: 198 (deleted a chunk of words that knocked this down by about 300) Sat: 2,088 Sun: 1,185 Mon: 1,544 I’ve had a few times where I just forgot to journal at my break but overall, it is keeping me focused. On the … Continue reading Journaling my way to success?
Thinking is not doing and doing is the only way to get words onto the page, so time to start writing. Starting within the next five minutes, I’m going to write 1,557 words as fast as I possibly can and still have it be coherent. In fact, I’m practicing that kind of fast writing right … Continue reading Okay, okay, okay, enough of that

I’ll mention my word count, my session length, and any other details I want … Continue reading Adopting a new post style for session updates
I have no idea how to craft blog post titles, so for the foreseeable future I’m going to input whatever I happen to be thinking or whatever I see on my notebook beside me as my title. No one reads these things anyway, so yeah. I get to do what I want. :D The titles … Continue reading F2 to BIOS: Save and Exit
I had a plan for today. Aiming for 3, 7, 7, 3 x 21, 300 words every 21 m Then I realized I was getting started much later than I needed to for my original plan to work the way I wanted. It’s 11:03 am. I need a new plan. I’m going to stick with … Continue reading An experiment and a challenge: 6,000 words today
I have a pen name I’m hoping to build into a nice second earner. Some diversification if you want to call it that to keep me from relying on only one genre to keep me afloat and happy as a writer. The only problem is that I’ve written so much slower than I had planned … Continue reading How I’m building my new pen name: Eighteen months (and two books) in
