Writing Hiatus

I have decided to take a writing hiatus until September. After managing 5k during CampNaNo, I haven’t been able to get anything written and I’ve been feeling this constant, nagging guilt like I should be doing something else.

My daughter is off school for the holidays, and with family taking precedent, I am allowing myself to put Zombies and Budgie Smugglers aside until she is back to school.

I may get some handwritten bits and bobs down, but I have taken the pressure off myself for the month. No more writing guilt!

However, the blog posts will continue. Next week, is episode 5 of my First Draft series and it is all about crafting protagonists. Teaser Tueaday will be put on the back burner until September as no writing means no teasers. I am currently, thinking up a post to replace it.

I totally see light at the end of the drafting tunnel now. I may be behind with CampNaNo, but I do think I’m getting somewhere.

I am considering doing my cover and blurb reveal soon.

Until then, here’s another teaser:

I’m well into the swing of CampNaNo now. I feel like the end is in sight for this novella. Well, the end of the first draft anyway.

I’ve written a lot of relationship dynamics this week, and that’s where I shine (if I do say so myself). Here’s a teaser for you:

Teaser Tuesday

CampNaNo started yesterday, so I am hoping for a fab selection of teasers to choose from over the next month. Today’s teaser is from yesterday’s mini writing session.

Pop by tomorrow for more information on the upcoming blog series!

I think I have about 5k left to write of Zombies and Budgie Smugglers. I know some writers can knock that out in one go, but not me. Adulting and parenting means that’ll take me about 3 – 4 weeks. If I can stick to my daily, short sessions, I hope to be done by mid June.

I have decided to add some characters from this WIP to the end of my character interview posts. A bit of insight into their personalities will be fun.

Once again, the bank holiday has me all out of whack. I was thinking my teaser Tuesday post was due tomorrow. Alas, my scheduling is all to cock!

At least I noticed with time to spare.

I’m hoping these teasers are not spoilerific! It’s getting to that stage now in my writing of Zombies and Budgie Smugglers.

CampNaNo

CampNaNo Update #3

I am two days late posting this because it has just been one of those bank holiday weekends. I didn’t have time to write anything, let alone post blog posts. My littlest had a temperature and my eldest needed entertaining. Adulting and parenting took priority.

That being said, I still hit my targets. Small and manageable is the way forward for me, and the day I did a little extra covered me for Sunday’s absence. I’m on my way to 6k words. As it is a novella, 6k words is a huge chunk and a lot of story happens within those words. It’s great knowing a little input is wielding big results.

My word count for this week is:

1,315 words

That’s a total of:

4,613 words


Remember today is a double blog post day. My teaser Tuesday post will go live shortly.
