JuNoWriMo and ROW80

Last time I reported for ROW80 I said I was going to write short stories.


I wrote one short story about a girl who had a crush on a guy who worked at the gym and the next thing I know scenes for my retelling of Beauty and the Beast YA novel come flooding in and took over.  The life of a writer, right.... or at least my life as a writer.

I started writing down there scenes hoping to catch them before they washed away.  During this time I got an email from JuNoWriMo (Writing challenge in June to write a novel in 30 days [Created by different people then the ones who created NaNoWriMo that take place in November.])

And I thought great idea I'll write this novel for JuNoWriMo!

And then I planned to write another novel that had a few scenes floating around in my head in July for Camp NaNoWriMo (more about that later) I imagined that once I started writing B&theB more scenes from the other one will flood in too.

This plan could change in a month.

It's written on this blog and not in stone.

I have no idea why but the blog hop linky wouldn't work....sorry no blog hop for ROW80

The Short Stories Plan ROW80 Day 45

My plan is to write a short story per week. I have "scenes" running through my head for each of my projects and I need to learn what's going on around them to better plot out these stories. So I'm going to create short stories from the scenes. Most of these scenes are scattering moments. And I read recently that scattering moment are very important in short stories.

Around the Word in 80 days - Day 42 After quitting I'm back

Hello Around the World in 80 days aka ROW80

Sorry I disappeared.  But I went through a few weeks of not writing including blog posts.
The last post I wrote was about not quitting, and then I don't write. I felt like I was quitting.  Hate that feeling.

So I'm back.
And working on three "projects"
One is a short story but it could be a harlequin novel but don't think it'll be that long.
Second one is a Young Adult contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast (new story idea)
Third one is the second draft to YA novel about a girl who see angels Work title Feathers and Deaf which plot has taken a whole different road.

Will come up with a plan on Wednesday.

Here is the Blog Hop of the other darling writers of ROW80 (hoping its show up)
