Happy New Year!
The new year ist here, where did 2019 go?
How was your December? Did you have a chance to write during all the holiday fun and stress? Tell us all about it.
Here are our standard questions:
Do you need a little incentive for writing more regularly? Then this project is for you.
1. Did you meet your writing/editing goals?
2. Did you have fun writing?
3. Did the P10K help with motivation?
4. Anything else you want to tell us, questions you want to ask?
Here are my answers for December:
The month was more than wild at work and I was very stressed out and really needed my three week vacation (One week has passed already, sob). I wasn’t able to write, but rewatched The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings — that’s become a year’s end ritual for me, I love these movies even though they depart from the books quite a bit. I don’t mind, I think they are a visual delight and give me new mental pictures when I reread the books.
Writing-wise I did more than I thought I would. I pondered my projects, wondered why I write at all and came to the conclusion that I just don’t want to give it up. However, I also realized that too much planning and wanting to publish anything, even on the blog, isn’t really what I want (and need). I want to work on my project. Plan and plot and write. Reconsider, replan, replot and rewrite. And if I never get it finished, I won’t mind any more. I want to get this story right. And rushing it doesn’t work. So I decided to just have fun with the parts and not bother about NaNoWriMo or anything like that any longer except perhaps the edit months, just because the plot bunnies are so much fun. And I really would like to get back to the Friday Fictioneers just to do a bit of writing regularly and because I miss the Fictioneers. But I won’t make resolutions because I know I won’t be able to keep them.
Anyway, enough prattle about me. How about you? How did your writing go? Please leave a comment, or a link to your blog if you write about it there. I’d really like to hear about your month.
And, as always, good luck, and many good ideas for the new year and January.
