I’ve just successfully completed Day 11 of the challenge over at www.750words.com – basically, it’s a month-long challenge of writing 750 words or more. I use the site for my morning pages – not really to write, but to brain dump for that day, before I actually begin my writing. It’s a practice that I’ve been trying to make a habit, and I think it’s finally sticking. That’s not to say I won’t be doing next month’s challenge (heck, I’ll probably do it every month, just to keep my hands in) but I’m truly hoping I’ve made this a habit. Or that it will be a habit, by the end of the month.
I’ve also signed up for the Antagonist/Protagonist workshop over at Novelists at Work (http://www.novelistsatwork.com/2011/10/3-d-characterization-the-antagonistprotagonist-relationship-revealed/) – today’s the last day to sign up for FREE with the code NEWYEARS2012! Go and sign up! I personally can’t wait to start next week!
In other writing news, I’m aiming to finish the first draft of the Christmas story (which STILL needs a title – I can’t just call it the Christmas story forever) for Saturday, so my RL writers group can tackle it. They’re also getting the first chapters of Disappearance. I hope the red pens are ready, because both of these stories need to bleed. A lot.
Finally, I’m wrapping up things with Spells and Swashbucklers, and it is due to the publisher (now that things have been ironed out) on January 31st. I’m planning on having it turned in far before then.
And I’m still loving Scrivener.
