Twice Fortnightly – Basically Last Week of School

I was not particularly happy with my progress last week. I did get a few things done, but not as much as I would’ve liked. Here’s what I did: Wrote for 8h. 2/3 of my goal. I am not pleased. I wrote a short piece for Flash Fiction Friday! It was a little spur of the moment piece, but I Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Basically Last Week of School

Twice Fortnightly – Taking It Up A Notch

My cold is still going strong. Well, strong-ish, and slowly diminishing thankfully. It put a bit of a damper on my writing progress last week, but hey… now is a new week. But first, last week in review: I spent about 12 hours writing or on writing-related activities. Less than I’d hoped, but more than I expected by week’s end. Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Taking It Up A Notch

Twice Fortnightly – New Effort

The past week wasn’t a great week, writing-wise. I only managed 6h out of my intended 7, and even that’s while rounding up if I’m being honest. I barely touched my conlanging, and gave myself a pass on Flash Fiction Friday because I was exhausted and empty-headed. I did work a fair bit on my #12for12stories February story, though. It’s coming along, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – New Effort

Twice Fortnightly – Bit of a Slump

Last week wasn’t great, writing wise. I was busy, I was tired, and I also planned my time badly. So what I ended up doing was this: Spent about 6h on writing. Disappointed about that one. Posted for Flash Fiction Friday. Picked a story for my #12for12stories short, but didn’t look at it yet. Had a crit group meeting, productive as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Bit of a Slump

Twice Fortnightly – 2015 in Review

So… I got fuckall done this week. But instead on dwelling on that, and the reasons why, I’m going to focus on all the things I did do, not this past week but the whole past year. A bit of a recap, to remind myself that I am in fact moving forward and getting stuff done even when it doesn’t feel like it. So, in Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – 2015 in Review

Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work

So, today I went back to my day job. I was ambivalent about it, but now that I’m back it mostly feels good. I’ve missed my colleagues! The only real bummer is it leaves less time for my creative work. With that in mind, I’ve revised my “productivity block” system to get a little more out of the days (two Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work

Twice Fortnightly – No P-o-D, but lots of creative energy!

That’s right, folks, I still haven’t looked into the Print-on-Demand thing. I should probably stop saying I will, and just let ya’ll be pleasantly surprised when I actually do it. So, what have I done this week? Well, this: Not a very productive week, as you can see. I had this freelance project I was working on, which was a lot more Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – No P-o-D, but lots of creative energy!

One Small Step – ThinkKit Prompt #28

Today’s ThinkKit prompt is to write about something you can do to support a goal you have for 2015. One of the more specific prompts of the month, I think. Now, I’m not gonna talk about my goals for 2015 since I already blogged about those a few days ago. So instead I’m gonna tell you guys that I signed up on Continue reading One Small Step – ThinkKit Prompt #28

Twice Fortnightly – You’ve Gotta Have Goals

It’s funny, every time I think about goals I hear this voice in my head saying “but you’ve gotta have goals”. It’s a man’s voice and it sounds like he’s saying it at the end of some longer speech about life. However, neither my memory or my Google-fu has managed to reveal to me where, which movie or TV show, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – You’ve Gotta Have Goals

Games and Goals

Since I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo a word that’s constantly on my mind is: Goals! I’m talking, of course, about word goals. I’m drafting a novella for Camp and my overall word goal is 30k by the end of the month. This leaves me with a daily word goal of an, in my opinion, reasonably leisurely 1k per day. It doesn’t really Continue reading Games and Goals
