Productivity. Or Not – Week 2

Goal 1.

Sci-Fi with a male main character.


  • MondayI want to write my heart, mind, and soul out on paper for fifteen minutes. Thus I can free myself of everything I have going on of any ideas wondering around. I hope this will also help to get me focused on where to direct the story of the week.
  • Daily- I want to spend at least an 1/2 hour each day in writing. I should be able to do at least an hour most days.
  • TimeThat block of writing I will not be looking at blogs or have Facebook open. E-mail will not distract me because I am WRITING!
  • Page- I mostly write on notebook paper. Thus I don’t know my word count. I’m going for one college rule notebook page front and back before I consider myself finished for the day. It is usually more than that if I get on a good idea.

    This is how it went. I had no ideas for this story. I’ve never written science fiction or had a main character be a man. It proved to be harder than I anticipated. Which was fine…well kind of. I don’t really have a short story but I do have a great idea for the making of one. It took me the first three days before I could really get to work on this project. Not at all to my liking. I plan to continue working on it. I enjoyed the challenge this provided and am anticipating my next science fiction, which I have a few ideas for now!

    My scheduled week went just as it would have but not as it should have. Everything happened that shouldn’t have and I was busier then expected. This was okay because it gave me plenty of time to sort through possibilities. Actually if life hadn’t got in the way I would still be digging up ideas. I did get my fifteen minute interval on Monday to just write whatever came to mind. As I expected it proved to be a great help. There was plenty of time alloted me for writing. Unfortunately quite a sum was taken up on idea searching. There were no distractions during my writing time. Partly because I hid in my bedroom or wrote while traveling. Page amounts are unmeantionable…ahem…I’d rather not say. We’ll talk about that next week. 😉

    I’m excited about starting my next goal. Tomorrow is Monday and I’m waiting until then to decide which point of view I write. Perhaps it is the villain or perhaps the prey.

    1. Well done, Dawn. It can take time to get comfortable with a new genre. Glad you will be going back to it after the workshop 🙂

    2. Yeah, at least you have an idea to work with later! Some weeks are just like that. Hopefully your days will be more conducive to writing this week! Good luck! 🙂
