Oh what a wonderful morning, oh what a wonderful week!
I had a really positive and productive week in writing this week. I’m on day 8 in my ‘100 Words for 100 Days’ challenge, and that’s going really well. Some days I’ve written over 1000 words, and others it’s only been about 150, but I have written every day, and that’s exciting. I’ve also had to make my own rule that editing (and getting more words through the process) doesn’t count. They have to be 100 new words, continuing on from the last part of the story. So, the end result of this week is that I’ve now finished the first chapter of Curiosity.
I went to my writing group last night, and had a really great time. We had a really interesting guest speaker named Dawn Alice, who’s recently self-published a fascinating book titled Life Love Tarot. I’m hoping to feature more about her and her book over the coming days.
We also did a great session on characters and characterisation, with tips on how to create realistic, 3-dimensional characters. I’ll be writing more about that later in the week as well. The homework for the month is to write a 1-page story or description, exploring a character’s background and personality. I’m going to write about one of the secondary characters from my WIP, and am planning it out in my head already.
Well, would love to write more, but need to get back to writing my novel. I’m so loving this 100 word challenge — it’s so very motivating!
