Weekly Progress Update!
Happy Sunday Funday World,
How’s everything going? I hope you’re getting a good start to your new year and keeping productive.
My first week in the new year went pretty well if I do say so myself. The crazy amount of OT at work is about to lessen, so I’m super happy about that and having more time to myself.
I also stuck with my resolutions so far. I’ve managed to write every day and Saturday was my off-the-grid day, so besides errands I absolutely had to run, I didn’t leave the house. And honestly, it felt great!
Fingers crossed for an easy breezy new year!
This week was really great for books!
I read All Systems Red by Martha Wells, The Need for Air by Lettie Prell, and Animorphs #17, The Underground by K.A. Applegate.
Ironically, all books had a scifi edge, but I really loved each and every one of them. Not a single one below four stars! I’d call that a win. If you’re interested in any of these, check out my review links below.
My watches for the week was great too. I watched The Witcher, Season One on Netflix.
I was a little leery at first since I’ve gravitated away from high fantasy in recent years, but this was a real gem. Definitely worth checking out!
Like I said before, I stuck to my resolution by writing/plotting every day.
During the week, I wrote a total of 1,885 words before I hit the end of Chapter 22 and what I had plotted out. That’s a total of 62,412 words so far (just about 250 pages, yay!) for the sequel.
So I continued forward on Saturday and got the first scene chiseled out. Now I’m trying to determine how I want the rest of the chapter to play out, but that shouldn’t take me long.
Now I’m entering another plotting phase, the last one for the second act of my sequel! This last stretch will most likely be four chapters (based on how I’ve foreseen things, then I’ll be done with that and can work on the last and final act along with epilogue.
The light at the end of the tunnel is definitely shining, and brightly!
That’s a Wrap!
All right, that was it for my week. How did yours go? Did you do well on your writing and reading projects? Anything interesting you’d like to share?
