A Day Late, But A Goal Fulfilled.

Reading The Hunger Games this week put a halt to my writing. What an amazing book. But, finishing it late at night did give me disturbing dreams. Pretty much, me or a loved one, almost died five or six times during my dreams. I would not recommend reading this book late into the night. But it was an amazing book. Very well written. And dare I say, I'd have given it Savvy's spot in the Newbery Honor books? Yes, I think I will say that. :)

So I now have two more scenes in rough draft form. From my rough outline I have around seven to nine more scenes to write. And then connect them together. Which means this week I need to write four more scenes one week. And five more then other week. That means a lot of focus, but I finally cleared out our computer room and set up a work station, so I feel more stable about having a writing spot. I can do it. I can do it. I can do it!

Sorry that this blog is more of a journal entry blog and not full of fun interesting thoughts and opinions. Oh well. I think we'll all live.

For those of you going to the LDS Storymakers Conference next weekend, see you there. I'm excited to be going!



  1. Whoo hoo! I want a writing spot. Right now it's in the front room while the kids are jumping on the couch. But somehow things still get written. Amazing. Good job! =)

  2. Thanks Carolyn! I'm happy about it. I put your hubby's teacher's quote up on my white board. I loved it. Time does pass. So we better make the most of it that we can. And guess what? I wrote last night instead of watching TV! It felt really really good! See you next weekend. ;)
