Word Count Wednesday--four

What am I working on?

This week I worked on a lot of random little projects that were not the one I should have been working on.  I started a couple of things that could be short stories or novels.  One was about a girl who's entire life has been planned for her by her parents and she goes through a series of slightly dangerous and out of character experiences to try to make her own life path.  The other one is based on the adventures my friend and I had in Europe and the trouble we got ourselves into.  I've also been editing my narrative piece that I will be turning in soon, but I haven't really added anything to it.

Word Count: 2,474 (new words)

How do I feel about the process?

I started writing the first one not in chronological order because I just thought of a scene from the middle first, but now I kind of like the idea of showing something and going back and explaining it.  If anyone watches Scandal or How to Get Away With Murder by Shonda Rhimes, that's kind of what she does with her shows.  I really admire her as a writer and I think seeing a scene where there's a lot of mayhem without really knowing what's going on and then going back in time to see how it happened is such an interesting way of writing.  The other thing I started was fun to write, but I'm not sure if I'll continue with it.  I feel like it might be a good project for me to work on improving my descriptive writing.  Honestly, I've been procrastinating editing my narrative piece a lot.  I think it's because I don't want to read it and hate it or something.  I've edited it a little, but I could be done with it by now and I'm not.  I will do it soon though!

What am I reading?

Still reading The Magicians.  I haven't been reading as much as I would like to lately, so maybe I'll work on trying to read more.

  1. Sounds like you've had a good week. Congrats!

    I'm not familiar with Shonda Rhimes' work. I'll have to check out some of those shows.
