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:

Then her husband needed to use the restroom but the boy wouldn't go so he left him for a few minutes. Maybe there was too much partying, food, or whatever excuse, everyone assumed that someone else had an eye on the boy. Turned out no one did." My chest clenched waiting for more. "He died. In the water. We didn't realize he was missing until it was too late. Found him a few miles down the shore."

"That's terrible..." said in awe not able to believe that happened.

"That's not the worst part. The husband was found with his head cracked open in the bathroom. Seemed that he slipped on water and fell." My eyes widened in horror and he continued, "They found his cousin in a car accident. Apparently there was a freak isolated storm and she drove off the road and into a ditch and hit a tree."

"Is she dead?"

He snorted and dropped his gaze sadly, "Almost. She's in a coma. Been there in that state for at least five years."

I let the weight of his story sit as I tried to digest it. Alma, no matter how crazy she sounded, maybe I should listen.

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: 14,702

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.

  • I still enjoy switching between stories. Surprised this is working for me, maybe I can get 2 drafts done quicker at this rate. *fingers crossed* (Handwriting one project to typing the other project seems to work fine with me and doesn't confuse me as I thought might happen.)
  • Skipped some days with no one to blame but myself because I felt uninspired and unmotivated. Now I regret it. lol
  • Keeping inconsistent to my word count goals. Caught up on one project's word count. I fall behind on one project as I try to catch up on the other.
  • Not exercising because it's too hot outside. ^_^;;
  • Not sure if I'll finish these project by the end of June. Wondering if I should work on these project in July or work on a different project for Campnanowrimo July. I'll be taking a week off for vacation.
  • Celebrated my Mom's birthday this week. A year from her birthday, I'd like to self-publish a book that I'm working on right now on that day.
