|Inspired by Flora Bowley's Art|
I am taking on my challenges one by one. I am looking at what scares me in my writing and writing through it. I am loving every minute of it even when it terrifies me.
I found myself writing more on my own than on #wordmongering this last week. I think it was because I was doing the 30/10 and it wasn’t always convenient to be #wordmongering at the top of the hour. I don't know maybe I need to tweak my schedule just a bit. Although as long as my word count is up I won’t worry about it too much. I am averaging about 10,000 words a week; not all of them great words of course but as long as I keep writing it feels like I am going in the right direction.
This past week my granddaughters have been sick with bad colds and yesterday I started feeling like I was getting a sore throat. I am taking vitamins and oregano oil to help with it but I am not feeling so good today; pushing through the icks.
One of the challenges and goals I have set for myself is creating a Teen Fantasy Anthology which I have created a contest for. I am very excited about this and it starts tonight at Midnight. If you enjoy writing Teen fantasy I encourage and challenge you to participate. I am also quite excited that the artist, Flora Bowley, has agreed to allow me to use her art as part of the writing prompts for the contest. I hope you will find her art as provocative and exciting as I do. I will be challenging myself to write a Teen Fantasy Fiction every day of this contest as well. I believe it will grow my writing as it will challenge me to write a short story every day for 30 days. Of the stories I write, I will have my daughter choose the one she likes the best and I will display it on my blog at the end of the 30 days. If you decide to take up the challenge of writing a short story every day but not enter the contest, I hope you will leave a comment with a link to your story if you post it on your blog especially if you use the writing prompts for the writing contest.
I am still doing my morning pages in 750words.com every day though sometimes not until late at night. I am still working on the books for the Book Reviews I will be doing on this blog. I need to speed it up but it just seems that this past week has been exceptionally busy.
I believe that is all for now. Doing my best to keep the momentum no matter how busy life gets and enjoying the ride.
