Having posted my plan/resolutions earlier this month, I thought I would update you all on how I am doing with keeping to mine.
On the 1st of January I started off well with a poem entitled New Year (49 words) and then had a great couple of Creative Writing sessions at Cleckheaton Library with Saturday 7 January spent organising my plot plan and chapter headings in order to work towards finishing my current WIP, 2,414 words written on Saturday 14 January and 2,517 written on Saturday 21 January. I then followed this on Sunday 22 January with a short psychological horror story, currently entitled Remember which at 1,094 words brings my total for January so far to 6,074. This far exceeds the 1,750 for the month I challenged myself. Now I just have to send at least one competition entry and one agent/publisher submission and I will have hit my January target.
I would love to hear how my followers are doing, so please drop me a comment with your successes, or otherwise, because it is great to hear from others, which I believe helps to encourage us all.
With this in mind, I thought I would share the latest One Room newsletter with handy hints for inspiration and recommendations for writing books:
