Writer With a Day Job by Aine Greaney

I’m a writer, as you know. I also have a day job, which you also know. So this book seemed like a good way to spend a bit of time. I checked it out from the library, no surprise there, and I thought it was pretty interesting so I figured I’d talk about it.

I’m Back! With More Goals!

Hi friends! First, thank you all so much for giving me some time off from blogging. I mentioned last week that I was having some health issues. Unfortunately, my eye is giving me a lot of problems which were causing headaches and preventing me from seeing very well. I’m still not 100% but I think I can write up a lil diddy for you today.

Bi-Monthly Goals: June and July

Hello friends, I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was not very relaxing and today I woke up feeling quite under the weather, so I’m ready for some writing therapy. Last week I told you how my bi-monthly goals went last in April and May and it was, for the most part, not successful. So I’ve kept that in mind while creating my next round of monthly goals.

Camp NaNoWriMo Final Check In

For the past month, I’ve been furiously writing. I’ve developed characters, moved plots, decided on a name for my book, and watched my word count crawl closer and closer to my 50,000 goal. I updated you all every week, bringing you along with me during my triumphs and my failures. But I know what you’re thinking. Dude, it’s May 1st, did you win or not?

NaNo Check In: Week Three Slog

Hello, friends! I’ts time to check in on my NaNo progress and I’ll tell you now, it’s not what I want it to be. Week three has been a real slog.

Word Count: 31,834

2017-04-21_1021
On target? Nope. I need to hit 35,000 today to be on target. I might be able to do it, but I don’t have the will. It’s not writer’s block, it’s fatigue.

 

Challenges: I’m having a real hard time getting any writing done. It’s been a pretty hectic week, and by the time I open Scrivener it’s like I lost all the will to work on a project. I would say I need a break, but I didn’t write last weekend. I am going to work really hard to get to 35K today. It’s Friday so maybe I can make some magic happen.

Victories: None. Absolutely none. The plot is still moving along, but nothing brilliant or revolutionary has come out of week three.

Thanks for checking in! I hope you all have a great weekend.
