I almost hit my lowest fiction goal (4000/week) but I don’t think my non-fiction was especially high so I should have planned for more time fiction writing. I don’t want to try to push for hours if I’m only producing 300 words in 25 minutes. That’s painfully slow but I think I can plan to take a break and get back to it a little bit later. I was just so wrapped up in worlds I was reading this week that I couldn’t spare attention for the ones I was creating.
I have the starts of two stories I’m going to try to actually finish this month. I have them outlined and am making small amounts of progress. I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo with a 20000 word fiction goal but I haven’t actually been over there to update my progress. My username is Kaendys.
Tied in Knots – MMF erotic romance, I guess. A married couple bring in an old boyfriend of the husband to help them learn shibari. HFN type ending.
Like a Boss – A while back, I wrote this short scene of a woman going into an interview and realizing that the man interviewing her was someone she had played with at a club the previous weekend. I decided to expand it into a story with her actually getting the job and them trying to keep things separate. In real life, it would be a disaster and a sexual harassment lawsuit waiting to happen, right? But this is fiction so I can play around.
Flash Fiction: 0/2 & 0/6 – none this week
Reading: 38 hours, all fiction. Grave Destiny and then a re-read of the earlier books in that series. K.F. Breene – Demigods of San Francisco and the DDVN world.
Learning: No webinar this week. No non-fiction reading. Some demo-style learning about fire-play but I chickened out before the taste test. Maybe another time.
Diet: Two bags of chips from the vending machine at work. 6 days with 2 mindful meals per day and some distracted fruit eating. I pretty much failed at calorie tracking all week but I ate distinct meals and aimed for healthy-ish snacks other than the chips. 1 binge day when everything within reach seemed like fair game.
