Writing Day

Ringgold, Virginia
March 28, 2017 10:23am CST
Good morning MyLotters. Hope you're having a good day. So far mine's off to a good start. I recently started writing a new romance story and I added over 600 words today. Aside from my romance story, I'm trying to work on a mystery story and do some editing to get one of my previous books ready for publication. I used to try to write every day, yet I found sometimes the mood wasn't right and I learned that you shouldn't force yourself to write your head isn't in it. So I only write when the creativity strikes and today it's on a roll, let's hope the momentum continues. What's everyone up to on this beautiful Tuesday?

I hope you remain inspired to write. I'm hoping the chinaberry blossoms will open soon so I can get some photos of them. Hopefully the winds won't be too bad, it's very hard to get good shots when it's blowing hard.

@paigea Self-publishing can be hard at times, but there's so many advantages.

@Courtlynn I'm mostly stuck at home most of the time too and don't get out much. I usually try to find something to keep me occupied.

@Tampa_girl7 They're still running. I did a little writing today, then I jotted down some new ideas in my notebook.

I try to set myself a small goal for each day. With writing I try to write about 500-600 words a day. I also have set a goal for writing at least one post a day here on myLot. Good luck with your books. How close are you to finishing the romance and mystery?

@HazySue I'm still in the early stages of the stories, so it's going to be a while before I finish them. Do you write stories?

@dramagirl26 I sure do. Right now I am working on a book for reluctant readers in the young teen years.
