#ThursdayWriteUp 1 – Here goes nuttin’!

It’s that time again!

Okay, the truth? This is my first time.

Yep. I’ve not posted my weekly writing progress on my blog before. Not as a regular practice anyway.

“So why the sudden urge to start a new habit?”

HeadscratcherWell, I was taking my usual 5 hour minute break on Twitter yesterday and got to thinking about what I was going to post for my #FridaySnippets (you’ll have to wait ’til Friday to find out) and I thought “Hey! I wonder if there’s anything out there in the writing community for Thursdays”.

So I asked.

Clare Davidson (@ClareMDavidson) answered the tweet and we found that we knew of nothing directly.

I sat here scratching my head.

Then brilliance struck!

Not my brilliance, of course. This is not a work of fiction.

It was the brilliance of Clare Davidson in the form of her next tweet:

“@GRBliss Or better still, start something off like @cscruttwell and I did with #sentenceaday


Long story short: We tossed around a few hashtags and decided on #ThursdayWriteUp to use as a way to tweet/link our writing progress and/or adventures for the past week.

Sound fun? It does to me!

So here goes nuttin’:

I haven’t figured my total word count for the week yet but I can safely say that I’ve written two thousand to almost five thousand words each day on my writing projects and still had time to get some other work done.

I’ve finally gotten back to refining the timelines in “Boots” and “Armoth Ridge” which has also led to a few character revisions. I’ve also made some progress that should lead to finished maps for “Boots”.

In my non-fiction projects I was only able to write a couple thousand words total and rearrange some of the chapters and sub-chapters.

That’s it! Not a real record-breaking week. A good week though. You know why?

I’m still writing.

And BONUS! – not only do I have #FridaySnippets to look forward to every week but also #ThursdayWriteUp. I’m excited to see how you are all doing and sharing my weekly triumphs and tragedy.

What do you think? What was your week like? Let me know in the comment section below and, if you’re on Twitter, every week at the #ThursdayWriteUp. I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks for spending time with me today!

And Thanks Clare! Great idea!

  1. Wow! You’ve had a great writing week. Sounds like you’re really steaming forward with your various projects.

    I’m glad I’ve got something regular to post on my blog on Thursday’s too! And posting my progress means I either get to celebrate, or commiserate with other bloggers!

    Yeah, It was a pretty good week for words. Better than usual!

    Thursday will now keep me in check where my projects are concerned. I don’t want to get to it and have nothing to write. It will be a great learning experience sharing with other writers.

    This will be great!
