Well, last week consisted of lots of travel and some exciting competition. Fun? YES! Normal? Well, not so much. Still, I insisted on a working vacation and made myself step away for a couple of hours every day. I didn’t add to my word count all the time as much of it was spent pouring through revisions on my novel. Traveling on a bus with a large group of teenagers can help encourage writing, though. I certainly needed the escape and added over 5,000 in just one day. So through the week, I added 11,511 to my new work in progress. I also include my blog articles in that total, although those are usually more fun than work. But then, writing my stories are always a fun experience, too. I often find myself laughing out loud or tearing up as I write, just like I would if I read it. (I’m thinking that’s a good thing!)
Next week will be more of a normal summer week. I should have plenty of writing time then. My hope is to get lots done before Volleyball season hits hard in August.
But then I also have a goal of planning all of my school curriculum in the next two weeks as well. I’ll need to spend some really focused time to get the lessons planned and accomplish my writing goals, but it will be good practice for the fall when a full schedule faces me.
