Word Count Wednesday

What am I working on?
I am in the midst of working on a story for my little brother. It's probably going to be a picture book, with pictures drawn by a good friend of mine. I'm really excited for him to see it! It isn't something I plan on sharing with anyone else so that relieves some of the pressure when writing it.

Word Count: 237 (for the children's book) & 1,200 for another project I'm working on

How do I feel about the process?
I feel like I'm getting lost in my writing, I'm still struggling to figure out who I am as a writer. This is definitely affecting my ability to write, I find myself questioning every line I type. On a positive note, the stories I'm writing right now are going surprisingly well. I've been able to write something everyday despite my lack of time.

What am I reading?
Five chapters from my geography book (surprisingly interesting).

Word Count Wednesday

What am i working on?
I'm currently trying to finish  up the assignment that's due next class! I haven't had any time to write anything this week so far but i'm hoping to get something done on my days off.

Word Count: 0 :(

How do i feel about the process?
I haven't had time to get anything done so it's a bit frustrating. I haven't been able to get any of my ideas down yet, I hope I don't forget.

What am I reading?
On writing by Stephen King, it's addicting!

Word Count Wednesday #2

Word Count Wednesday #2

What am I working on?
I'm still working on my short story but I'm almost done! I also started working on the children's book experiment. I have the main idea narrowed down but I'm having trouble with the dialogue.

Word count?
I'm not sure, I like to do most of my writing by hand so I haven't really had the time to type it all out.

How do I feel about the process?
I feel very productive! I've managed to get a lot of writing done in a short amount of time. The majority of it definitely needs to be revised but it's better than nothing! I tend to get distracted fairly easily so trying to keep focus on one story has been challenging to say the least.

What am I reading now?
I recently started reading A spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. It's different than most of the novels I've read but I'm loving it so far!

That's all for today, thank you!!
