[Pledge] Day 1

No writing on any of my works in progress, but I did end up writing well over 500 words today. I believe I finished out at 1,214 words. All of it was homework related. I have another assignment due tomorrow, which will probably get me at least halfway there.

Fingers crossed. I also work all day (pretty much) tomorrow, so we’ll have to see how that goes.

Anyone else doing a pledge/challenge this month?

Facepalm.

Apparently I made an April’s fool out of myself. I thought today was April 1st. D’oh!

Ah well, tomorrow is the first day of the pledge! I just…got a headstart? Heh.

On that note: does anyone know how far away a carpet bombing would be felt? I mean, a very thorough carpet bombing. Completely wiping a major city off of the map…I might have to use creative license, but I would prefer to keep it somewhat realistic.

Pledge time again!

Someone on facebook started a writing pledge again. Starting tomorrow, I will be attempting to write 500 words a day. Considering all the homework I have coming up and the monster “Say ‘No’ to Zombies” has become, I think this one will be fairly easy. 

Anyone else in for a pledge? 

Days 29, 30 & 31: Ugh, Birthday, and ugh again.

Only about a week late, but the page-a-day pledge is over, and I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. To be fair though, most of the work was editing anyway, and it’s kinda hard to measure that progress.

On Tuesday, I took the day off homework and did some writing in between birthday phone calls/messages. I’m regretting that now, since I’m having to rush up and finish my paper of Psych before tomorrow night, but oh well. Hindsight 20/20 and all that. I did get some ideas sorted out for Etlan, at least.

The 31st was taken up with having to get grocery shopping out of the way, and other errands. I wrote about 500+ words, but it was all homework. 

All in all, I think I failed the pledge, but at least I can say I tried. I think I might try doing a pledge every other week instead of a month long deal. It might be easier to manage around homework and work. We’ll see. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out what to share for Sharing Saturday…

Day 27 & 28: Some work, and homework.

Had to focus on homework instead of writing today, but yesterday I did get some work done:

“Now mama, you know there’s no such thing as rest for the wicked.” Kerry chided. She slid closer to her mother, resting her head on Emma’s shoulder.

“And they don’t get much more wicked than you, do they, shilé?” Emma’s arms came up to wrap around Kerry.

 

Days 24 & 25: sorry…

Nothing really to say here. Most of my writing was notes, or helping a friend with their story, so I have nothing really to share. Today looks like it’s going to be another note day, so I make no promises on today either. Believe me, I’m trying. 😦
