My writing and goal changing is starting to represent the British weather, 4 season changes in one day sometimes.
Last check in I was pretty much resigned to walk away from Shroud Of Death, another problem I was having I was keeping things too focused on only writing what was relevant to the story and was cutting dialogue too short (I personally hate long passages of dialogue.) So Shroud was seriously miffed that I'd quit on her. After posting my last check in, I unexpectedly added 247 words to Shroud this time just letting the story roll and the dialogue just be without adding so many restrictions.
I'm now trying to treat my 1st draft as a discovery process of finding out who the characters really are and where the story ends up. I'm enjoying Shroud again.
Guess what? Shroud's on hold until Friday now, I did a review of my assignment requirements and I need to write at least 10 poems for my course and rewrite them by the end of February. Also the 1st issue of my poetry newsletter goes out next Sunday so I need to start preparing the content for that.
So new temporary goal is to write at least one poem a day until friday when I'll be off work and should be able to work on Shroud Of Death again.
Word count achieved:
Thursday: 0 but typed up some of my initial planning for TCI
Thanks to my regulars as always for the continued support.
