Well it’s been another long chaotic week but that didn’t slow me down. I was able to hold to all of my goals but one this week.
Here’s how it went.
Added 3778 words to the WIP and more will be coming after I finish this update. I’m working through my craft books and finding lots of correlation that will be helpful in designing my Standard Operating Procedure. I’m finding that I’m able to expand on information in one book with what is in another. For an example, both Larry Brooks and Blake Snyder talk about beats. While Larry brings this up in reference to story milestones, Blake mentions them in reference to segments of a movie script design. They correlate, expand on each other and give a full overview of what to plan for. This is just one example, but let me tell you, I’m lovin’ it!
I have a five day streak going on 750words. I think in the next round I’ll be adjusting this goal more in line with my ROWbro Kerry Meacham’s idea of leaving some flexibility for days off. While I try to get to it every day it is sometimes nearly impossible and I do plenty of writing. 750 has done everything I was hoping to get out of it, I’m able to think and type more cleanly and at a faster pace.
I am reading Description and Setting by Roz Rozelle currently. Even though I’m only on page 22 I have already picked up a huge number of tips. Rozelle talks about the blending of description with writer voice in terms that it make understanding both aspects clear.
No new queued posts added this week, but that isn’t a surprise. I have one guest post to write today and then I’ll be working on my regular weeklies. I’m still hopeful on this one but I know I’m running out of time.
The treadmill went well although I missed on it yesterday due to an unforeseen family event that kept me out of the house for most of the day. I’m not worried about this though. New week. New opportunities to succeed.
Well that is all for this update. How did your week go? Are you finding success? Struggling with something?
I hope the coming week is awesome for all of you. “People can achieve anything they desire, it’s getting past ourselves that is the big obstacle” -my quote from a Twitter conversation yesterday.
