December 2011 Writing Challenge

Literature Blogs

My NaNoWriMo Skeleton — after deleting junk and moving things like backstory, character interviews, etc. to other files — is sadly in need of carbs. Some scenes I thought I’d written were no more than scene plots. (Picture a “Home Alone” palms to face slap.) Then, this morning, after not thinking or writing on it for three whole days, a couple more scenes came to mind: carb scenes.

I usually do word-count challenges here, but after NaNoWriMo, I’m ready for a change. My writing goal for this month is to spend ten hours each week for the rest of December working on my WIP from WriMo: 40 hours of writing or revising to the end of the month. Simple, right? (Good thing the web cam isn’t on, or you’d see me chewing down my nails. Finding time for me to write in December is like trying to milk rocks. Sigh.) So…? Any takers?

  1. Hysterical. But actually… I would count ITT — Intentional Think Time, which may include pacing.

    I remember one fall, picking up fallen rotten apples from the ground, when I suddenly realized my leg had fallen asleep because I was just sitting there, staring off into space with a rotten apple in my hand, thinking about my WIP.
