Weeknotes - S02E06

Summary:

 

A bit scattershot this week, but good progress on some projects.

 

Monday:

 

I did today’s word at www.oneword.com

 

Tuesday:

 

I continued my plan of getting back into writing slowly by doing a slightly longer piece from the day’s image prompt at Pobble 365.

 

Wednesday:

 

I used Pobble 365 to provide a prompt for a brief piece of free writing.

 

My planned writing date with Hannah was initially a bit derailed because all four of my venue options in Vauxhall were failures. We finally ended up in Pret, which was fine.

 

I completed my reviews from last weekend’s glorious reading retreat, and managed to write the next scene of Shards. I have a clear vision from there to the end of the story, so felt pretty good about it.

 

Thursday:

 

I did a first draft of an article I intend to submit to Breathe Magazine about the benefits of reading retreats.

 

Friday:

 

My short story, Moving Forward, was published on Page and Spine.

 

I did some research and planning for this month’s GYWO discussion post, and figured out a way I could submit to an interesting anthology by the end of the month, utilising a story whose rights reverted to me at the end of last year.

 

Saturday:

 

I met Geena at The Counter at The Delaunay, a lovely cafe I discovered earlier in the week.

 

Geena read the draft of my proposed Breathe article and gave me some really useful feedback on improving it.

 

I finished the first draft of Shards and posted it on Scribophile for critiques.

 

I wrote up the GYWO discussion post about debunking writing myths, which was a lot of fun, and I hope will be helpful to some of the newer writers in the community.

 

Geena and I brainstormed Colours, which resulted in some interesting new ideas on how to expand the backstory and widen the scope going forwards.
