ROW80 Check-In 8/28/11 and Journaling...Re-read

First of all, I would like to thank the lovely people who stopped by and commented last week.  It really meant a lot and was so encouraging.  =O)  I actually have some good news.  One of my ideas that I had originally decided to scrap has found new life again! My research has given me a clear direction and I may actually get words on paper this week, or at least work out some kind of plot structure.  A new beginning...yay! Also, I have started keeping up with my journaling again.  I'm going to tweak my goals a bit today.

Goals:

--Continue research and work on story structure for revamped idea.
--daily journaling (see today's entry below)
--reading books on the craft:  one hour daily 
--going to try to work on one, maybe two, short stories for a couple of contests I'm thinking of entering.



Today's One-Minute Writer prompt is:  Re-read--Write about a book you've read that you would like to read again.


I'm a fan of re-reading.  There are actually several books I have read more than once.  I was just talking to someone about Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches trilogy.  Great books, especially the first one.  I am thinking that I need to re-read them.

  1. It sounds like you are getting back on track. Only sitting with what you have written, thinking about it can do that. Don't forget to do some 'real' writing too. I take a fifteen minute bash writing anything connected to my story, the least it gives me is a new idea or a line of dialogue, the most can be up to 650 words of almost coherent draft.

I apologize for comment moderation, but I seem to get a ton of spam so I'm afraid it's unavoidable.

Thank you for your comments. They are much appreciated!
