Ready. Set. Write! (week #2 for me)

Back again keepin’ it real, folks!  I did okay this week – couldn’t have done better considering all I had on my plate, but I’m really, really trying to fix that so I eliminate the worst of my writing impediments and always have time for my creative endeavors.  They are not, after all, indulgences.  They are as essential to my well-being as the protein shake I had at 10 am this morning.

Ready Set Write!1.  How I did on last week’s goals:

Like I said, I did okay.  I covered a coworker’s vacation at work, and she apparently does the work of three people, so sleep was scarce and spare time was scarcer.  Still, I submitted to the Ashland poem contest thingy (took longer than I thought because their website was squirrelly) and wrote a blog article that (hopefully) doesn’t suck, but I made zero progress on Where I Write.  No worries – onward and upward!

2.  My goal(s) for this week:

Work on Where I Write and start organizing my thoughts about the nonfiction piece I want to write about trauma.  And, write another non-suckish blog entry.

3.  A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:

Although I relished my newfound status as a “professional” writer, the novelty of the [Internet] articles quickly wore off, and churning out 20 pieces on a single keyword became tedious at best. After being assigned the keyword “barbecue sauce,” and then later “cash gifting,” I decided that perhaps I needed to expand my horizons. (The prospect of writing ten articles about popular condiment or a notorious scam can do that to a person.)

4.  The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write):

An average of four hours of sleep per night and the workload of four people.

5.  Something I love about my WiP.

It’s the absolute truth, and writing it is f***ing cathartic.  Oh, wait, this is the Naked Notebook – it’s already R-rated.  Fucking cathartic.

  1. Writing is incredibly cathartic for me. Reading too! And 4 hours of sleep?!?!?! How did you function?! I hope you get caught up this week!
