Project Goal: To get a first draft this novel.

Stage of writing: First Draft

What inspired my current project: I read a story on tumblr and read comments that said someone should write a story based off that topic. The suggestions and my desire to expand on it inspired my own version. It's paranormal (not sci-fi as I originally stated).

Last 200 words:

I tried to keep my expression neutral at the frustration that stormed in his eyes. He took a deep breath and shook his head, "No, it can wait."

"If it's important you shouldn't wait."

His warm hand reached over and dwarfed mine. He squeezed mine gently and stared into my eyes as if willing me to believe, "You're important."

My eyes searched his and my traitorous body began to radiate heat that burned on my face. A wicked grin appeared on his face when he noticed my red face. He turned back to his phone and held it up showing me that it was completely off. "No more distractions. I promised you a fantastic date and I'm going to deliver."

A wry smile popped on my face, "Doing great so far."

He whipped towards me trying to decipher my meaning. He raised a pointed finger at me in warning, "You jest but I'll show you!"

I crossed my arms not impressed and focused my attention from his finger, which was surprising well kept, and followed it up to his face. I threw a smirk on my face and challenged, "Then prove it."

Sedric gave a brief nod,

Project Goal: To get a first draft of a romance/contemporary novel.

Stage of writing: First Draft

What inspired my current project: A story that was going to be based off a couple of characters in my head that were supposed to be a comic. Then I realized I need a story before I actually draw it. lol

Thoughts of the Week

Total Words This Week: 4,849

Decided to list some of my thoughts I've had during the week to give you a little more insight on my progress and/or struggles.

  • Struggling with time management. All my friends want to hang out during my writing time.
  • Trying to exercise more which hopefully helps with my writing.
  • Word goal may have been more ambitious than I originally thought. Falling behind easily.
  • The plot I originally had for WYDM has decided to change a bit which is throwing me off.
  • I am enjoying switching gears between the two stories. Handwriting one project to typing the other project seems to work fine with me and doesn't confuse me as I thought might happen.
  • Am not able to make up the word counts for both projects at the same time. I keep switching by writing the project which has fallen behind the most. XD
