I did something unfortunate to my neck over the weekend so had difficulty focusing and being productive this week, but I still wrote or planned or organised or brainstormed at least a little bit every day, and that’s very definitely a win.
I had to wait in for a delivery so I did my best to focus on some writing at home.
I started off with my Fringe Guru review for the show I saw the night before.
Then I did this week’s Fandom Weekly entry and added submission opportunities from Writing Magazine to my spreadsheet.
I finished off by completing the first draft of the essay I started the day before.
I was struggling with neck and shoulder pain this week, but still managed to just about record a writing day today with a review of the previous night’s cinema trip.
I had several hours between an appointment and this week’s Vaults shows so I ensconced myself at Waterloo for a session.
I started with a review of the previous night’s theatre trip. Then I moved on to Six-Eighty in an attempt to make it in to a proper story. I named the characters, which always helps, and came up with some additional information to flesh out the plot.
Then it was back to Artisan for Chapter Three.
I took a break to tweak something I wrote last summer to fit an upcoming competition and to revise an article for submission to a mindfulness magazine.
I wrote one of my Fringe Guru reviews for the week.
I was meant to go to Write & A Pint after work but my neck was still hurting so I just went home.
Sean from Write & A Pint sent me the exercises from the previous night’s session and I worked through them, completing a first draft of the story I started in the first session.
I also read through a draft of an essay I wrote recently and tweaked it slightly for submission.
I completed twelve competition, magazine and anthology submissions.
I found another submission opportunity for a homeless piece of flash fiction.
I also did some planning and some reading.
