Writer Workshop

(Posted by chris the cynic)

Those of you who also frequent Ana Mardoll’s Ramblings will find this somewhat familiar.  Here, as there, it was requested that there be a regular post to talk about writing projects (and other artwork-creation). Thus this post exists.

What are you working on? How are you feeling about it? What thoughts and/or snippets would you like to share? How does your activism work into your art? What tropes are you hoping to employ and/or avoid? Are there any questions you’d like to ask or frustrations you’d like to vent?  Writing workshop below!

    I fell behind, but I did finally draft the second part of my novel. Just the last third to go.

    I have 6 days left, counting today. I have 11 scenes remaining and about 19,000 words. If I can just do 2 scenes and about 3000 words a day, I’m good. I met this goal yesterday, and I’m going to try meeting it each day until the end. Here’s hoping!

    I’ve written more stuff for Daniel and Rowan (formerly Roland) Loyd, and come up with a series title (Not really a creative one – I’m calling it Puzzle-verse). I’ve got two more vignettes finished and I’m working on a short story (with actual plot!).

    Out of curiousity, does anybody use Scrivener or Ywriter? They seem similar, except Ywriter is free and can be used on a thumb drive (which is a requirement for me.) I’m trying out Ywriter right now for the Puzzle-verse stories. I had tried out Scrivener before, but I think it’ll be easier when I’m not converting it from a Word document.

    I use TextEdit mostly, and an Excel spreadsheet to track stats like # of words/day. When I need to do a wordcount I copy-paste into a word document.

    I made a couple words on the novel! That’s more than I’ve done all week!

    And I promptly emailed a friend with a scent sensitivity for research purposes relating to scent sensitivity and can’t make any more words till she answers. This is not productive, brain.
