Missed Meeting – ROW80 Check in

Normally I would begin this post with my monthly post about my RWA meeting. Not this month. I spent the whole day in bed yesterday and sadly missed my meeting. The bug that has been going around at work got me, and it got me good. I had a nonstop cough and total blahs.

After filling up with cold medicine all day yesterday, today I feel much better, even though today my back and chest hurts from all that coughing it is an improvement. It looks like I will not have any problem making it to work tomorrow. So here’s to the day job winning out this week.

Not so fast.

Since I felt better today, I tackled my plot outline for the next Orgarlan Book. It still does not have a name. I may wait until it is half way written before I commit to its name. At least the ground work has been done. Even the log line is done.

Check it out: A magic book and a magic claw can be damaging to the world by whom wields these powers. Who has the ability to take them away?

Next up is to sit down and start writing…

Falling Plot and finding Plans for NaNo – ROW80 Check – In

It is fall – no doubt about that. Here I am, on a Wednesday with my Round of Words Check – In. Sadly I do not have anything to report except for my up and coming NHRWA meeting that is coming up this Saturday in Bow, NH. I’m certainly looking forward to it.

My lack of writing does not have anything to do with writers block. I’m sure it has a lot to do with shifting gears by going from Teen Contemporary to Fantasy. The switching from one set of characters back to the other set does slow the muse down. I guess that is why some writers recommend staying with only one genre. Other writers recommend not writing series or trilogies.

I can’t help it. My stories come in spurts. It is just the way I write and the stories come about.

But today on our Facebook group for ROW80 one of our comrades posted a link to a post for NaNo Planning 2013. I checked it out. I must say I will need to use this when I begin work on my next story. It just might be the plan I need to get my butt in gear and get the story written.

Just think – NaNo is right around the corner. I’ve been using this challenge for the past three years to get my stories into motion.

Hm… Maybe that is what my muse is waiting for.

But I do remember one of my goals for this round is Deliberate Writing. So I had better go and get to work by planning and plotting.

I hope your writing week is going strong.
