So this Sunday was just like any other Sunday in Brussels. Just like the Sunday’s in oh, lets say November or February. It was cloudy and cool in the morning and then the air started warming up to the point where I took off my jacket. I know you start to get excited right. Then the sun even pops out for a good 20 minutes and I’m thinking we’re in business. So me and My Prince go to the park to soak up some rays. We bring some snacks and books. By the time we get to the park a gigantic grey cloud covers the entire sky and we end up wrapping the towels that we were sitting on the grass with around our legs for warmth. So after two hours of chill we decide to head out. We get home, put all the stuff away and then the sun comes back out. And its been sunny ever since. But that’s Brussel’s summer for you…and fall, and winter and spring for that matter.
As for my week of writing, it went ok. My goal was 5,000 words per week, which brings the daily total to about 714 words. I tend to do better with a weekly goal than a daily one because some days I write 200 words and other I write 1,000. I didn’t keep track of my daily word count, but I did increase my work in progress (WIP) by 5, 853 words as of Monday July 4. So I made my goal technically speaking.
I have to admit that I didn’t actually write all 5, 853 words this week. Don’t get me wrong, nobody else wrote them for me, but some large chunks of it was taken from draft 1 of my WIP which I had put on hold after reading some craft books.
So this week I wrote a few thousand words, plotted chapters 3-7, and copied/edited some large chunks from draft 1 and pasted them into my current draft. I also got some tips from fellow tweeters which was great!
This week I hope to keep up the pace and dedicate more time to writing. I will still be using big chunks from draft 1, but I will try to do some organic generated writing, not just editing what i already have.
Hope all the other ROW80 participants are doing well. 🙂
