Posts Tagged ‘Weekly Writing Wrap-up: A Crap Week’

Welcome to this week’s Weekly Writing Wrap-up. The title of this week’s wrap-up explains everything. Between not writing at all last week. I got the weird kind of sick where I felt buzzed like when you drink, but without out the beer. It was a very good feeling. I don’t think I have to say this, but I will anyway. This post is going to be short.

I already mentioned I didn’t write this past week. That’s what annoys me the most.  My only moment of clarity was posting last week’s Wrap-Up. Now I am really behind on writing so I need to make that up this week. I think I am going to set myself a goal this week. Besides having to write at least four days (hopefully all seven) I need to write at least ten thousand words. I think my current goal on my excel word count tracking sheet is 5k. I will have to check.

The only thing I got done this week was some work on Long Live. To help know what I need to develop, I am trying to nail the story down. To do that I needed to get my main character’s motivations down. I only got two done on Saturday before going to see Power Rangers. My two female protagonists were easy to figure. It was my male protagonist not so much. What I was trying to get done based on what the other two wanted, I just felt like I was trying to force certain things to make him fit better with one of the girls.

When I realized this, I stopped and let stew in the back of my mind. The plan was to work on it on Sunday, but that never happened. Lucky for me I as able to crack him his morning at work around 7 AM. With him done I have only two more main characters to figure out and then it is on to the antagonist’s motivations. Once I have the motivations done, it will be figuring out the outline. I can’t say I will finish the motivations this week, but it is my focus when it comes to Long Live at the moment.

As for the God Multiverse, I am making little strides in. They seem to come in spurts. A piece here another there. I can feel something is brewing. What will it be I am not sure, but I do know it will take some time to fully form. I can’t be surprised, I have been think of my Multiverse as one piece for nearly a year and a half. That is a lot of time for ideas to gestate, I have to at least give this new piece some time to simmer in the cauldron of my mind. I will write down ideas as they come and move from there.

That’s all I got today. I swear when I say these posts are going to be short, they turn out longer than I plan. Oh well. Be sure to check back on Friday for our Weekly Craft Post in our ongoing Worldbuilding series. We are focusing on Magic and Technology. It third to last sub-series in that whole series. Yes. The worldbuilding series is coming to an end. When? Only I know.
