Week ending Sunday, March 29, 2015

Today I finalized 617 words of a so-far three-page poem that I think could be something special. 

I've always liked writing poems and I've been paid for a couple, but I've only sent out those two.  But as I've been researching markets for my stuff--which is what I've been doing most of the week, besides working at home at my job that pays The Man--I've seen a ton of places to send out my many poems.  I won't send them all out, maybe, but...

Well, not much this week, so I'm sure I'll get my butt kicked again.  Very, very frustrating week.

1,000 words earlier this week + 617 words of this poem + about 350 words, just a couple of pages of the next chapter of my almost-finished book.  ::sigh::

So let's just call it an even 2,000 words again this week.  I thought there'd be more.

Next week there will be.


  1. So for me this week -
    Kryos 2 outline - give or take a hundred - 4,000
    Assorted emails, blurbs and what not - 600
    Work on MK 3 synopsis - 360
    Total - 4,960

    1. Suzanne, that's really good.

      I don't send out too many emails, so I can't count those. But I'm over myself and I'm going to write more. I've told myself today: I'm a professional. I'm a professional. And professional writers write. It's that simple.

      Finding time is still hard. I haven't had time yet, and now I'm off to eat and to drop something off at my tax preparer's. But after that...

      I'm going to do more this week. And I have Friday off! It's good that when I get a day off, the first thing I think is: More writing!

      Keep up the good work. You're doing great! And you're giving me a total to strive for.

  2. I did not do as many emails this week, I try to do them in blasts. Professional writers to write :)

    I carry a notebook around with me to write in while I am in line or waiting for things, It helps quite a bit too when random ideas strike.

    Glad to help, and your blog is making me keep track and remember what I need to work on and where to focus.
