My Production Calendar Is My Boss

On Monday, May 1, I will begin my production calendar. I have made a list of writing projects that is currently 34 items long.  The projects include fiction, scifi, non-fiction, YA fantasy, and children’s books. Choosing one item to work on was hard.  Very hard.  But I have chosen to write book one of a series that I have planned. I will release more information … Read More My Production Calendar Is My Boss

Day 1

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. I have always hated that quote, but sitting here looking at my word count log on the first day of my day-job-free life, I can’t think of any other way to sum up how I feel. Word count:  832

Last Week of School

  School is code for Day Job.   On Friday, I will be leaving my day job to pursue writing full-time.  

NotNowImWriting

In 2015, I started a blog called Not Now. I’m Writing.  As blogs go, it was successful.  I posted on it.  People read it.   I put the blog down when I got too busy to keep up with it.  I took on a day job while freelance writing and teaching yoga.     As I am itching my way out of the day … Read More NotNowImWriting

Getting Out

I am only a few days from beginning.   Two years ago (I think), I took a job that was not supposed to last two years.  I took a job, because I had taken a year off from “real work” to teach yoga and write full-time.  When money got tight, a friend recommended I work with her fixing computers. So, I did.   The small … Read More Getting Out

Camping In Early Spring

I enjoy camping.  I like waking up in a place that is not the usual.       This past weekend some family (observe picture of furry family member) and I went to Fall Creek Falls for a weekend camp.    

Last Year, I Started Freelancing

    In January of 2015, I made an online declaration that I was going to finally become a paid writer.  Many would argue that if you write then you are a writer.  I agree with this statement.  100%.  Knowing that I was writer was hard enough.  Getting brave enough to put myself out there so that I could eventually be hired was another. … Read More Last Year, I Started Freelancing

New Years

Once or twice a year, I create something I call a Mega List. This list replaces my New Year’s Resolution list and is much more malleable than resolution lists seem to be. The Mega List has Three Categories:  Feel, Do, and Goals This is how the categories break down: Feel – How do I want to feel? Do – What do I want to … Read More New Years

422

Daily Word Count: 422 Finding the discipline to sit down and just write is challenging.  I am typing those word reluctantly, because I like to think of myself as a disciplined person.  I do yoga for an hour six days a week.  This is outside of the classes that I teach.  I run three days a week.  I meditate for at least 10 minutes … Read More 422

First Writing Gig – Complete

I finished my first paid writing gig of 2015 tonight!  It felt great.  It still feels great. Daily Word Count:  356 this word count does not include this blog, because I felt like it would be padding results.  Padding results=not cool.

355: First Daily Word Count

Through the power of coffee, I have started my daily creative writing word count. Daily Creative Word Count:  355 I wanted to work one of my novels, but I sat down and started free writing.  I wrote a bad short piece (Obviously, it was short!  355, but they are mine!) about a newly appointed president storming into the oval office after oversleeping and finding … Read More 355: First Daily Word Count
