Author Journal 2nd – 8th December 2021

It’s a new month and the start of a new writing week–if you’re a weirdo like me and a new week starts on a Thursday. So, yay, happy weirdo new week, everyone!

Let’s jump right into the review.

My Writing Goals for 25th November – 1st December 2021

  • Write 3000 words for Running The Asset. (Hit 72,358 total words)
  • Block out the next two scenes

How Did I Do?

Things didn’t quite go according to plan last week. I had to change my work plans (nothing bad, just a change in home stuff) and had to cut a day’s writing out of my schedule.

But, even with that in mind, I feel like I did pretty well. I didn’t block out the two scenes as hoped (you’re not surprised, are you?). But, but, but, I did block out a sequence! FYI, a sequence is a series of tightly connected scenes. In this case, it was a series of four scenes (now you are surprised. I was, anyway).

I just missed the 3K word goal for the week. I came in at 2,947, taking the manuscript to a total of 72,305 words.

This Week’s Goal

  • Write 3000 words (taking me to 75,305)
  • Block out the next sequence (it’s the sex scene, including the run up and aftermath)

That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by, and take care.

Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author. When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over yarn, and planning world domination with my husband,, and our squirrel army.​
