Project Robot Update

Last week I told you about my newest writing task, Project Robot.  I’ve realised whilst writing it tonight, it’s going to be a bit of a longer story than Short Story.

I didn’t want to do something long just yet but I think after the edit I’ll be able to get it down to maybe 800 words.  It’s over 1000 currently but for now I need to concentrate on finishing it and then take out all the unnecessary bits.

I’ve done about 350 words on it tonight and hope to finish it by the middle of this upcoming week instead. I’ve gone off track a bit but can easily see how to get back on it.

That’s where I am with things.

Keep on writing and enjoy the experience everyone!

A New Project

Though I’m concentrating on Project Robot I was rummaging through my creation drawer and found an idea I want to progress with. It’s about a dragon who has hayfever. With relating to this subject a lot I figure it’ll just be another short story for my children. I think if I write enough stories I’ll put them in some sort of collection for publishing.

So that’s where I’m at with writing. The momentum is there and the motivation to keep at it is also there so win win!

Project Robot

I didn’t think I’d be starting this so soon but over 700 words later I’ve churned through most of this project already.  It’s aimed at young children and is loosely based on a very well known Christmas song, though there’s nothing Christmassy about this story.

Keep on writing fellow writers and never stop doing it!

Writing Project Update

Well, I can’t believe I’m able to post this but I finished my small writing project that was started several days ago. I have finished the narrative but now I’m going to give the animation aspect a try.  I’m no artist by any means but feel I’d like to now map out and essentially produce this myself. The story itself is only 400 words but that was what I was aiming for. Something small, manageable/achievable etc.

I will see how I get on with the next stage but I’m also now excited at the next project I have lined up.  A robot themed story!

All in all, I’m pleased with where I’m at.

Writing Update

Not to start off on a dull note but unfortunately I haven’t written for some time. I don’t know why but I just can’t dedicate any time at the mo plus I seemed to have wained in the need to write my book. It feels like it’s going to be shelved for several years whilst I’m in this frame of mind and I’m OK with that. I know deep deep deep down I shouldn’t be but you never know things may change.

I may try a new project, something smaller, something easy perhaps. 2018 I am trying to be a bit easier on myself as I am my own worst enemy sometimes!

Let’s see what happens next, wish me luck and hope you all had a great Christmas (if you like the festivities that is. If you didn’t, then like myself, isn’t it good that things are finally back to normal?!).

Write to you all soon.

NaNoWriMo – Ben & Jerry’s Day 23

I wrote tonight’s word count whilst happily chomping through some Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.  Although delicious it was a bit distracting trying to type with both hands whilst holding a spoon so I don’t think I’ll be doing it again but it was fun to do.

261 tonight. The dream sequence from last night has finished but I think I’ll be padding it out at a later date, it was great to write but feel like it is missing some more fun and silliness.
