Been a Minute since I’ve Talked about My Writing… July 17, 2008

…so I thought I would give an update.

For about a week and a half, I wasn’t writing. Just didn’t have the urge. Not sure what was keeping me from writing, but there you have it. Over the weekend, me and another writer decided to get serious about our writing, so we drafted a calendar for the remainder of the year and plotted out our projects and writing schedule.

I’m a very analytical (read: anal) and structured person. I LOVE, ADORE organization; I blame it on being a VIRGO. But having that schedule helped kick my butt into gear.

Since Monday, I have written close to 10,000 words on my latest project, EMPTY SWINGS. My goal is to have it done by the first of August, but if I keep on track, I could have it done in eight more days – about five days short of the goal!

I plan to submit this book FIRST to Harlequin’s Steeple Hill imprint…and then, if necessary, to other places. I have my prayers up on this piece BIG TIME.

There are other projects in store for me – editing my script THE PROBLEM WITH BEING HAPPY, writing a prayer/meditation book for women (maybe with an audio cd, too), writing two screenplays, and a few small things….all doable, if I apply myself and keep moving forward toward my goal.

Wrapping this up – my I still have to write, and while I have the time before school starts, I want to write as MUCH as I humanly can!

    Good for you! I think I need a schedule, but I put things off by nature…I just can’t help it. I’d probably put off making a schedule…lol

    Thanks for sharing

  2. If you need a schedule maker, holler! LOL I love organizing people and being their drill sergeants! LOL
