#ThursdayWriteUp 10 – A little bit of everything

This week’s been, at best, a semi-productive week for my writing WIP’s. I’ve done some character building for “Bodies” and spent a few hours (total) working on the maps for the story. With the new characters I realized that the old maps didn’t work too well, so I broke out the heavy equipment and moved some roads and relocated a few folks.

Boots received some attention this week in bits and pieces. No new chapters or full scenes, but quite a few little snippets tacked on to unfinished parts with a few prospective scenes thrown in. I expect to dedicate at least one full day, if not more, to this project over the next week.

I would have liked to have a higher word count for the week but I’ve already found a bit of inspiration with the new landscape. To put it simply – If I take the time to transfer what’s bouncing around in my head into words over the next week, I could bring my average weekly word count on this project to a more respectable level. It takes all the parts to build something though, right? πŸ˜‰

The rest of my time this week I focused on my new side projects (yep, the “secret” stuff!).

For the writing portion of those projects I’ve probably cranked out about 2-3k words between them. I spent the rest of the time – probably half of my “work” time – on all that mysterious “behind the scenes” stuff. About the only other thing I can say about those projects without letting the cat out of the bag is “So far, so good”.

In between all that I found a few hours to work on my music and finally get back to my woodworking projects. The entertainment center only lacks the clear coat. Maybe I’ll be able to finish that today. πŸ™‚

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!

Have a great week and thanks for spending time with me!

    Good thoughts. We can’t always be cranking out the words, sometimes we’ve got to let the story simmer, or build backstory, maps, etc to bring depth and a better understanding of the story and to work on problems. Ha!

  2. It sounds like you’ve been productive in other ways. You don’t always need a huge word count to have had a good writing week πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to finding out more about your secret projects. Did I say that last week? πŸ˜‰

      Yes, you did, and it’s good to hear, thanks! They’re a bit of work but I’m having fun with them. Hopefully others will enjoy them when they’re ready.

      Thanks! πŸ˜€
