Work in Progress Wednesday

So I’ve been a little quiet the last week for two reasons, neither of which were my choice:

One is that I was sick. Hell if I know what was wrong with me, besides the usual long-term health issue I have, but damn. I was too tired to get out of bed for more than a few hours at a time, my whole body a painful knot. Maybe I had the flu.

The other is that my laptop got bricked. I had a thing of water on the windowsill above my laptop, and it tipped. I ended up having to replace it, spending $500 that I really don’t have. Moral of this story: don’t put drinks on windowsills.

In other news, my NaNo has collapsed like a sand castle in the rain. I’ve made peace with that, though. I’m not going to keep making myself go nuts trying to come up with an idea to hammer out in what’s left of November. Instead, I’m just bowing out of it this year, and I’m going to go back to work on the story I was doing before NaNo. It’s holding my interest, and that’s what matters.

What have you been working on?

Work in Progress Wednesday

NaNo is upon us, and I’m not sure what I’m doing.

The story I had planned I’m already tired of. I’ve been thinking about this for the last two days, and I’ve come up with nothing. I keep pushing through on my original story, but it’s not holding my interest anymore. I’m debating on if I want to try a new story that I only have part of an idea for, and just make a huge mess, or spend the month just finishing up stories, which yeah, is cheating, but as long as I’m writing 50,000 words during the month, I don’t see what the big deal is.

I’m leaning towards the latter. I want to submit six stories to Less Than Three next year, so this would give me a head start. My only worry with that is with my ADD, it’s going to divide my attention too much. I guess I’ll see what happens if I try that.

Work In Progress Wednesday

This week is just flying by–forgot it was Wednesday until I was the blog post reminder in my phone.

I submitted a story to Less Than Three about a week ago, and they’ve already accepted it! So, I’m going to be working on editing that up until NaNoWriMo. I’m geared up for NaNo, and with nine days to go, I’m just getting more excited by the minute.

Technically, I’m cheating for NaNo–you’re only supposed to do one story unless you can connect your stories somehow. Well, I’m going to be using NaNo to write a few stories I’ve wanted to get done to submit to Less Than Three later. They’re connected in that way, so I’m counting it. And it’s not like I’m not putting the words in, so good enough for me.

Work In Progress Wednesday

I’m coming down with a disgusting, hacky cold that’s cutting my energy off at the knees. Still, I’m working on getting stuff done, pushing myself through even when I feel floppy.

I finished¬†a short story that I started last year and abandoned, so I feel pretty good about that. I’m just waiting on it to come back from my beta and to do my own editing to send it off to Less Than Three Press and see if they take it. It’s a cyberpunky/post apocalyptic-y story with a vampire protagonist in a city of monsters.

Now, I’m debating on what project to do next. I started another short story for LT3, but I’m not feeling it. So, I think I’m going to do a full outline of another story that’s been nibbling at my brain and see where I go with that. If it doesn’t jive, I’ll go back to the first one and force my way through it.

Work In Progress Wednesday

My approach to writing has been scatter shot in the past. If I didn’t need to finish something by a specific date, I’d poke at a project here, write a few words there. All of that little bit added up to lots of nothing.

Since I only have one editing project (my lesbian Western) with a due date now, I decided to make myself a writing schedule, to put these ideas in line. Each month, I will give myself one to three projects and just work on those. For example, this month I’m working on finishing one novel, the aforementioned editing, and the sequel to the same Western. Next month, I’ll be doing NaNo¬†and editing a different novel. And so on.

I need guidelines and deadlines to keep myself focused, so I think this will work out well. What are you guys working on?
