Thursday Thinking – Did you write this week?


You’ve had some time to digest the writers’ nourishment from January’s Third Thursday program about helping yourself to write, no matter what. Now we’d like to hear from you about your writing this week. You can share your comments at the bottom of this post, way down at the bottom of the page. You can also leave your response on the WLT Facebook Page.

Here are some questions to prime your pump.

  • Did you notice a routine you used to get your ready to write?
  • Did you notice a diversion that took you away from writing?
  • What was your writing goal this week? Did you meet it?
  • Did your inner-editor show up? How did you handle that?
  • What helped you write this week?
  • What deterred, or almost deterred you from writing? How did you overcome it?

Thanks for sharing.

(If you couldn’t make it to Book People for the panel, maybe you read about it here on Scribe. If you did neither, take a minute to read the Third Thursday Wrap-Up.)

  1. I finished a short story that I had been working on for sbout three weeks ( a long stretch for a short story). I had been trying to force the story in a certain direction. I finally let go andthe protagonist took the bit in his teeth. After letting the main character run with it, it became aa much better story with a surprise ending that forced me to change the title. I’m going to sit on it for the obligatory week or so then send it out into the world.
    An odd and unexpected circumstance has allowed a mini- retreat. I have the opportunity to be holed up in a hotel in Waxahatchie for about three weeks undisturbed. I’m planning to use the time to finish the final self edit on my (debut?) novel.
    So far, it’s been a good winter for writing!
