Hi Everyone, welcome to my weekly writing wrap-up, where I share how much writing I did during the week. I am sad to report that I didn’t get to write for 4 days this week! 4! If anything, I never usually miss more than one day a week writing, so having 4 days off almost killed me.
One of my non writing days happened because my baby girl started Kindergarten. I only have two children and won’t be having anymore, so it was hard for me to watch her go off to school. I was a mess the whole day, it was really tough, I couldn’t write I was so distressed. She on the other hand was fine, not a single tear. She just walked into the class room and sat down. She loves school and didn’t want to have the weekend off! Nothing like her brother who still clings to me each morning and hates having to go to school.
Anyway, I didn’t get as much writing done as I would have liked. I edited a chapter of my YA urban sci-fi and I wrote more of a romantic short story I am working on thanks to #writeclub. I got most of my writing/editing done today. I typed up three chapters of changes to my YA contemporary that I am editing and edited another chapter on the printed out copy.
Hopefully the coming week will see much more writing done.
For those who don’t know what #writeclub is, it’s a club on Twitter for writers that any writer can join. @FriNightWrites hosts writing sprints on Friday nights. Australian #writeclub goes from 7pm-midnight AEDT, then the UK follow on on their Friday night, followed by US. We sprint for half an hour, report how many words we have written, take a break and then go again. It’s really fun, helps keep you motivated and you meet lots of other lovely writers.
That’s it for me. How was your writing week? I hope you all got to write more than I did.
Happy writing 🙂
