I finished a blog post on Tuesday (I think) and have started the next one as well as keeping track of my food which was part of my goal.

I wrote my two for the week but who knows. I have a day off tomorrow so I might get another one done if the inspiration strikes.

 

I Promise to y'all that I will actually work on my novel today, versus working on writing other stuff, lol.

We'll hold you to that! If you don't, we shall remove a finger for every failure. Jks :)

thanks for pointing me here too! 

 

i have a side goal in my challenge to write my screen play. i'm also writing a creative non-fiction novel, and taking a songwriting class that starts tomorrow. 

i hope to do some writing, no matter how small each day. yesterday i wrote a few pages for the novel, and today i wrote down some random lyrics.  hopefully i'll be able to keep up.

 

On Coursera?? I'm doing that one too!

to all of you attempting to write X-time or Y-words per day -- are any of you interested in exchanging work at the end of the day? I think it would be a good way for us to keep each other accountable. it will also force us to share our work with at least one other (which is often more difficult than the actual writing process itself).<br /><br />thoughts?

There is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or why or who you are. You want one and I want one, but there isn't one. It comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. And yet you are all that you have, so you must be enough. There is no other way.

My challenge makes things much easier - my writings are made available for the world to see every Monday and Thursday on my blog. If I don't write one, it'll be obvious. To make sure I don't miss any, you might want to subscribe for regular emails *cough*.

 

Today's post is about fear. And the evolution of the brain (sort of). And cycling.

Similarly, my posts are going up on my blog at Project Reroll. The new ones are getting saved to drafts since I'm still posting the archived ones I saved daily but I always mark it on my challenge thread when I write a new one. :)

I've wanted to host my own blog for a while now.  I just feel I have nothing of value to share.  I mean, I could do a kick-ass blag about my mental disorders.  but other than that, I fear there's nothing of value in my life, lol.

I think the best thing about the internet is that there's always someone who's interested in the same things you are and you can go out there and find them through the cunning use of google. If you want to blog, then blog. Honestly I've started a couple but none have had the staying power of the one I have now because this one is about my own personal health/geek journey. It's integrating the things that are important in my life and I found that a lot of people connected with that. I kept it as a private journal. But now, it's public BECAUSE people found out I had it and wanted to read it. I didn't think anyone wanted to read about this stuff, but they did and now I'm approaching 3000 views. Is it viral? No. But I get messages from people almost daily that seeing me be able to tackle this stuff head on has enabled and inspired them to do the same and that makes it totally worth it. :) The thing of GREATEST value in your life is YOU. And if you share YOU, whatever that means, that's what people will love.

^powerful stuff. :)

Right, because overcoming those things is nothing.  And so is being awesome, encouraging others, and changing your own life.  Yup, I can totally see how you have nothing to share with the world....oh no, wait...

 

Seconded: share yourself, because you are awesome.

 

As far as actual writing accountability, I'm not up for sharing mine, but I'll keep you all posted on progress.  I'm now finished phase 9 of 11 on the short story I started last week.  So another day or two and I will be ready to edit, which is sweet (been a long time since I reached that stage with any of my writing!).  How about everyone else?

Derrrrrp I have made 0 progress so far D:

 

This is always the hardest part of my 6-week challenges. I am the worst sort of creative person, in that I both love and powerfully despise the process. (For example, when my outlet was about 50/50 writing and visual art, I destroyed every single visual art piece I finished. Every last one.)

 

It's just so...ugh, personal. When I write I look at my work and am filled with misanthropy, as embodied by myself. It's always "BEHOLD the COMPLETE and UTTER ABSURDITY." *headdesk* *headdesk* *headdesk*

 

But anyways.

 

@Hearthsinger, your story is really inspiring.

And that made me want to hug you.

My 2 new blog entries are done for the week's challenge goal and my blog just passed 3000 views, so I'm pretty stoked considering it didn't exist 33 days ago. :)

Creations are your babies. no matter how much you care or don't, they are your child. just as a parent can be neglectful of her son, a Creator can hold no regard for his Creation.

but tthe Creator, the Artist, can also care too much. they can coddle their Creation -- a painting, a novel, a sculpture, etc. --, not wanting to harm it. it looks at it at one point and decides if they interfered anymore, it would taint it.

I'm doing that with my comedic novel, "Operation Vertically Challenged". when I originally started it back in November, I didn't really care about it. I was able to just write whatever came out of my head. but then I went back and actually reread it for the first time, and I saw so much potential. now I expect too much of it. I want it to be great, whereas before I would have just been pleased to finish it. where once I expected it just complete high school, I'm now pressuring it to attend and graduate from college. and now, I don't want to touch it. 'm scared of ruining how good it could become.

the inverse of that is, of course, that there's no possibility for it to become awesome if I never complete it. so I must write more on it. I must.

so how do you know how much to love it? how do you know when to let your child make mistakes and when to protect it? I guess that's just something the comes with experience, and that varies between each Creator and each Creation. my other novel, "Hospital Den Hélder", is more precious and fragile than this one. with that one, I know that I have to be more careful in the writing of it. the characters are deeper and more susceptible to my influence. in "OpVertChal", meanwhile, those characters are more shallow, but more self-directed.

I just ... I don't know how much to care about "OpVertChal". I stopped writing on "Den Hélder" due to a fear of destroying it. I don't want to do that again. I want to finish this one. I want to finish both of them, really. I want them to be grand.

but not every child is destined to save the world, not every writing piece is destined to be a great novel.

 That was a great read. I left a comment for you.

 

I just passed 5,000 views on my page and a lot of it had to do with reddit. If you find the right subreddit for your posts, they can really take off.  I've been pretty amazed at the increase in traffic.
