Birth of a Novel July 17th

Week 6

  • Every Friday post a quick update on how you're doing on your writing projects. 
  • It can be combined with Camp Nano or whatever personal goals you've set. 
  • All you need is a line or two added to the beginning or end of whatever post you already had planned for the day.
  • Then visit the others in the list to encourage them to keep moving forward. 
Help spread the word so we have more folks to visit.


I don't know why I'm even counting weeks any more. Life has exploded and writing is at a dead stop. *sigh*

We are closing on our new home at the end of this month so I'll need to start packing at some point. Although we're not in a big hurry since we haven't sold our old one, and the new one needs some renovating. The stress is probably going to kill me since I'm not sleeping. 

Sleep is good you know.

Anyway, I keep day dreaming about my stories as I drive all over kingdom come, but none of it is getting on the page. I NEED it on the page. 

Taking notes during the tour.
There were two good writing related things this week. First, I enjoyed a full day visiting a nearby
town that will become the setting for my secret project. My mom and oldest daughter went with me and we didn't worry about when we should go home. It was great! Even though it was so hot that we practically melted, we loved the historic tour. Plus, it was so good to actually be in some of the places I want to use in the story. Now I know what they look like, smell like and how some of the floors are uneven or slant one way or the other. Hopefully, those little details will help the story come alive for my readers.

The second thing was I heard back from my publisher about Talia's sequel. It was good news, and I'll give you more details when they are all official. The downside to that is now I REALLY wish I'd been writing for the last two weeks on book three of that series. It feels like I'm never going to catch up with my personal goals. 

Any of you have a basement? I'd like to run away for a week where my family can't find me and write.

No stats this week since they didn't change at all. :(

Join the fun and visit the others in the blog hop! Please link to your page, not the actual post. Thanks!

Feel free to post the list on your blog on post day. Simply add < to the beginning of the below code and > to the end.

  1. I finally finished my revisions on GRIMOIRE and spiffed up the synopsis a bit - now working on revising another work - NO REST, my NA Scifi. Sorry you didn't get much done :(

  2. Having life experience is part of the writing life and can inspire things in your writing. At least, that's what I tell myself. I got a bit done on my own writing this week, not much but it's forward motion. And had an idea while at church this morning on a non-fiction e-book project I could do, probably relatively quickly.

    I do intend to publicize this blog hop some more. I've mentioned it in my Facebook writers group Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers but no one seems to have joined from there. There's another writers group I'm in on Facebook I could try but I'm more hesitant about that since I'm not an admin for that group.

  3. Try not to stress. A move is a huge thing, so it's natural to fall behind on writing. It will be over before you know it and you'll catch up with your goals.

  4. Soon will come the day when all you do is write, and these days when you couldn't will be a distant memory. We all go through those spells.
