Weekly Writing Update



So, I’ve been keeping up extremely well with my writing for this week! And I finally took a little picture of my calendar as well!


So. Here are the two methods that I use to keep myself on track and motivated! My desk calendar is – of course – on my desk! For the calendar, I can specifically write down which stories I work on, and where my words came from. It’s a bit of a mess, and I’m looking to keep it more organized for next month, but I’m still really happy with it.

As far as my words go, I’m already up past 58k, and quickly zooming towards 60,000. I’m just really pleased with how well my writing has been going. Even with some of the emotional issues that I’ve been having, it’s still really successful. Sometimes I end up getting my words at 2am when I can’t sleep…

But words are words are words!

I’ve also started posting my daily writing prompts, like I want to. The responses to those will go up either here, or on my patreon! So please, feel free to click a link to that at the bottom of this post! Also, I want to start featuring other forms of art on here, probably on Sunday or Monday? Poets, artists, photographers, sewing, etc. Anything that is an outlet for creativity. We are all one big community of people trying to get noticed – it starts by us helping one another! So if you have someone to recommend, or want to be featured yourself, let me know!!!!


Until next time, guys! Keep up the creativity!

That Broken Laptop Thing

So, for those of you who keep up to date with yours truly, I’m going to give you a little information. My laptop is broken. It’s seriously killing me. I have a writing computer, and it’s good and all… but I really do get a lot of my work done on the go. x.x the lack of laptop is hindering me from being able to get anything productive done. ._.

I just wanted to post this to let you guys know that the book reviews and writing blogs ARE coming. They’re just going to be a few minutes – I need to get like 200 bucks saved up to get a new laptop x.x I will resume posting on my desktop, but it’s just not the same. I am on the go so often x.x without a laptop I feel naked.

Anyway, thank you to those who have questioned where I’ve been! I really appreciate it so much!

And for those of you who want to help out, I’ll leave a few links below!!!
