February Intentions: MyProWriMo
Hello February! How do you do. This is the month I planned on doing MyProWriMo (My Promise to Write Month) and I'm already balking. "I have too much to do," Miss Busy Butt yells from my left shoulder and while little Miss Sunshine Hope whispers with confidence from my right, "yes we can."
Organization is the key, plus Lent is coming up so my intention is to spend less time internet browsing and more time writing. Particularly since I finished outlining Eyes in the Ashes. I finally came to the realization that I could spend days and months getting ready with more research and more character interviews and this and that, because it's so much fun. However, the goal is to actually rewrite the book and I expect some things will be revealed in the writing that I hadn't thought of during my brainstorming sessions. And that's part of the fun of writing as well. So....
My intentions for this month:
WIP: I have 30 chapters plotted out and plan to work on one chapter a week. I've been dithering between first person and third person and will see which works best. All the exercises I've done lately with my main characters have been written in first person which has really flowed well. The first draft was done in third person but I feel like I'm connecting better with the characters in first, so will see how it goes. I dove in yesterday, rewriting the first scene from first person point of view and it's humming along. Goal - complete 4 chapters this month.
Post every day: Posting every day will be simple enough as long as I'm organized and spend my afternoon writing time wisely. I have a tendency to get lost on the internet for a couple hours after James and I are done with lessons. I don't know about you, but I'll go online to look something up, then the distractions begin. Before I know it, it is time to make dinner, then James wants to watch something and hubby wants attention and then all I want to do is read for the rest of the evening. So time management is the key. My posts will be a mixture of book reviews, chapter notes, A - Z poetry, pictures, flash fiction or nonfiction, life updates and whatever else sparks this month.
