Here’s my week in review…
Write 7000 words each week. 2000/7000. Last week I finished the prequel novella I’ve been working on since early July. The first two chapters will be posting to my blog this week. I have some revising to do to later chapters, but it’s in a place where I can be okay with sharing it here on my website. I’ll be taking the rest of August off in terms of writing new words. I haven’t ever intentionally taken time off from writing. It’s happened, and I’ve gone long stretches without writing, but not ever because I planned it. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to not write for the rest of the month, but I know that my imagination needs a break and my creative bucket needs time to refill.
Journal everyday. 38/41. I haven’t made today’s journal entry but the day isn’t over yet so it could happen!
Read one book a week. I did manage to finish a book this week–Cursed City by William Massa. I read several samples and also read about half of The Sick House by Ambrose Ibsen before giving up on it. I’m definitely in a book slump and can’t really find what I think I want to read. My writing time will become my reading time for the rest of August, so I’m hoping to knock out some titles on my list while also trying to discover some new authors.
