Word Count Wednesday #10

What am I working on?

After the character building we did today in class I've decided to use that character in a story. When I finished writing the first chapter of my novel, I wasn't entirely happy with the outcome therefore I want to take a different approach this time using this new character.

How do I feel about the process?

I have always been one to make up a character as I wrote, but after today's activity I've  been exposed to a whole new world of character building. Moving forward I plan on always creating a character in depth before writing their story. 

What am I reading now?

I am still reading and having a lot of fun with The Road.

Word Count Wednesday #9

What am I working on?

Not much. I've just been working on the same projects as well as tinkering with a few ideas for some of the experiments. 

How do I feel about the process?

It has been a relaxing process just writing what I want when an idea pops into my head. 

What am I reading now?

I finally was able to pick back up The Road and have been reading that for the last couple of days.

Word Count Wednesday #8

I hope everyone is having a wonderful spring break. 

What am I working on?

I have not been working on much this week just spring break fun but I have bought a small notebook that I can carry around. After we talked about how to get more writing in I thought hey! let's give this a try. As someone who prefers writing with a pen, it seemed perfect. I've only written down random thoughts so far but hopefully something more concrete in the future. 
About 300 words

How do I feel about the process?

I love it. I feel like I feel more accomplished when writing something down. So I'm excited to see where this goes. 

What am I reading now?

Not much still just taking my time through On Writing.

Word Count Wednesday #7

What am I working on?

After learning about experiment #7 I am very excited to get started. I already have a few ideas jumping around in my head and can't wait to put something down on paper. I'm not sure where this experiment will take me and I can't wait to see what is the final result. 

How do I feel about the process?

While reading the chapter I was able to come up with ideas that were shot down and eventually more ideas that fit the definition well. I have yet to write anything but I expect it to be fun and maybe even a little challenging. 

What am I reading now?

I'm catching up on Stephen King's On Writing as well as reading a few of the chapters in 20 Master Plots.

Word Count Wednesday #6

First I wanted to say fantastic job to those who presented today and I can't wait to listen to the rest of them. 


After a few weeks of not working on much of anything I've started to get back into the swing of things. After spending time on the narrative assignment I have been actively trying to not only progress the story but to make the necessary changes for a more congruent novel. I've changed quite a few things that I believe has made the story a better read. More recently I have written a short poem only a few stanzas so far. I'm not sure if I'm going to add much more to it at this time.


The process so far has been incredible. My creativity is flowing once again and I am eager to sit down and write more of whatever comes to my mind whether it's for my novel or for something brand new. 


I'm reading On Writing as well as a few poems from the Victorian Era for my English Literature class (fun stuff) and of course as many blogs as I can sink my teeth into.
