The WEATHER, you guys!!! (Do I start every post like this? lol) It’s been so ridiculously rainy and blustery and dreamy that our creative brains went into overdrive, and we just had to call a writing party! I had my new journal open next to me for scrawling notes while I wrote, and I thought it might be fun to share them with y’all. 🙂
I give ye…
What Goes On In Anna’s Brain (Other Than Writing) While Writing!
Dear Journal, Kate bought writing snacks (banana chips, candy, and chocolate covered pretzels), and my oldest sister Perry stayed through nephew naptime to write and edit with us! Now to smash this evil first draft of woes. ~A
Wow. So my computer died and so I plugged it in (beware of the cord, all ye!) and now it will. not. load. My career as a procrastinator has been sabotaged. Or helped. Or whatever. I’m confusing myself. 😛 ~Anna
lol lol lol. I literally just wrote, “The darkness became darker”. Oh, the life of a writer!! 1:44 pm
Trying to figure out how to write my sick MC throwing up, and Mom “offered” to stick her finger down my throat so I can know what it feels like. GROSS!
Saved a Smarties for Paul. Wish he were here writing with us, but… nasty old college.
I need to write a story where the girl’s name is Tita and the boy’s name is Nic so their “ship” name would be “Titanic”. Then I’d sink the ship by having someone named Iceberg enter the story. Actually, I need to finish this story first. So bye. ~Anna
Lunch is a good invention.
My fingers are tingling in coldness. You’d think typing would cheer them up a bit but NOO!! 3:47 pm
829 words on my down-point so far today! I think I’m slowly convincing her to stop being down… finally. ~A
Dear Journal, So here’s the deal… one thing that helps force my MC out of the down-point is when she stumbles on the East End (heavily bombed poor district in London) and meets a group of Blitz refugees living under a bridge, and she has to decide to stop thinking about her problems so much and help out someone else for a change. Can you tell I’m a bit annoyed with my MC currently?? lol But it’s cool because as I was having her run around all grumpy and sick, I had her meet these random people and then BOOM they stuck around and helped out with the plot. Thanks billions, cool folks!! ~A
The sun is finally coming through the blinds to warm up the room. YAY! 4:30 pm
2,997 words until I can write my climax!!!!!! Can you tell I’m excited?? 😉 4:46 pm
To Maggie @ 4:50 pm : “like, my MC is still alive. so that’s good.”
“Awkwording” needs to be a writer’s term for when you don’t like the words, but you’re doing the words anyway.
I wrote 1,000 words on Eagledare today! 😀 It took way much longer than ever before to get that little bit written, but hey, I’m liking where this part randomly decided to go! XD ~A
Did you enjoy this slightly strange post of me chronicling my story writing? 😀 Tell me!
(Also, please please say I’m not the only one who has problems with forever getting stuck in the down-point of a story project!! We can DO this, you guys!)
What is your current WIP?
