Some good progress on my novella project, but then the rest of the week was eaten by the podcast again. However, now that’s live and on a regular posting schedule, I should have more time (hopefully) to dedicate to other projects.
I planned my day to maximise my writing output, heading out to a cafe first thing to put in 2.5 hours of concerted effort before an appointment at the doctor. This fulfilled almost all of my criteria for a successful writing session - out of the flat, with a decent walk either side and an appointment that would keep me from giving up early.
And it worked. I faffed around on the internet for a bit, then wrote a whole raft of reviews, before knuckling down to work on Beneath The Tree. Using the Six Month Novel Programme boot camp materials, I made lots of notes on the characters and had an epiphany about how the story should end, which in turn gave me a basic outline for the whole thing. Huzzah! Still have to actually write it, though - but my path is looking a lot clearer now.
Then I took a break and typed up all the outstanding notes from my current notebook.
I wrote my script for the next podcast episode.
I wrote a couple of reviews.
I started off with one of my least favourite writing activities - formatting and submitting. I cleared my list, submitting seven pieces to various places.
I wrote my script for the next interim podcast episode.
I edited the podcast episode we recorded yesterday and helped Dave with all the remaining bits and pieces to make the podcast live.
