Good Weekend For Writing

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about writing, so today is the day for talking about it!  Because a few days is a really long time and all. 

Things are going along pretty well, and I’m finally all caught up!  Hopefully I’ll be able to get to 50k.  Actually, I’m sure I will, since I’m very determined to finish.  I’m not going to be working on this idea anytime soon, but I might pick it back up in a few months.  Most importantly, though, I need a break from writing.  Not completely, but I definitely want to slow things down.

I’m currently at 35,136 words, and wrote a total of 8,299 words on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to get my word count back to normal!

Speaking of slowing things down, I think I might really slow things down.  Last week, I wasn’t in the mood to work on all 6 of my “side projects,” so I just did 3.  I think I’ll the other 3 this week and see how it all works out.  I’m not sure if that’s something I want to continue in September or October, but since I won’t be writing any 50k novels in the next 2 months, I might do all 6. 

It is something to consider for November, though.  I feel like I could handle 2 50k novels plus the 1500 or so words per week for the other 6.  One novel plus various projects is a lot different than 2 novels and various projects.  I was hoping to have at least one or two finished by November, but at the rate I’m going, I’m not sure if anything will be finished by then.  I guess I won’t know for sure until November.   

It’s weird though.  I’ve been writing something pretty much everyday, and it’s been fun.  But at the same time, weird too.  I’m definitely not used to writing so much, and it’s really different writing in a month that isn’t November.  And not the 15oo or so a week, but writing an actual novel in a non-November month!  It’s been hard to find the motivation the last couple months, but I manage to do it…somehow.

I’ll be back with more tales from my camping adventure!
