Writing on Wednesday (July 1, 2015)

Writing on Wednesday Badge

Writing on Wednesday is a way to keep this particular writer on track (I hope!). These are weekly posts/updates where I will share something from the past week of writing with the readers of this blog. Sometimes it might be something I’ve learned, found useful, or a bit of my own writing and ideas. I hope this will be a time of sharing, encouragement, and accountability. Join me in setting some writing goals to finish that project and celebrate each success.

Wow! Is it Wednesday, already? Where has this week gone?

It has been a crazy weekend around here. My father-in-law was over on Saturday and Monday to work with my husband on expanding our deck. Because of that, my husband took a couple of days off of work this week, so now I’m feeling a little bit off on what day it is.

If you didn’t catch my June Wrap-Up post, I met my goal of writing 6,000 words in June. I’m thrilled about that. But also, according to my outline, I’m very close to having all of my scenes written. I know there are a couple of “problem” spots in the story that still need to be worked through, but I plan to tackle those on my read through of it. But I have 12 scenes left to write. Only 12. And since it is my birthday this month, I’ve decided to give myself a birthday gift–a completed first draft. My birthday is on the 12, so as long as I write a minimum of a scene a day, I should be able to meet that quite easily.

My Writing Goals for the Month of July:

By the end of the month, I would like to:

  • By July 12: Finish writing the final 12 scenes of my rough draft.

Writing Reflections:

Usually I’ve been posting what I’ve found to be some incredibly helpful articles that I’ve found around in this area. I plan to continue that today. I think it was last week sometime, this brilliant article about how to deal with the numerous distractions we as writers face popped up in my inbox. I thought it was fantastic (and quite funny!). So, here I will share it with all of you:

The Complete List of Creative Distractions and Defenses Against Them
