Writer On: April Writing Goals (Recap)

Hello Writer Bees!

I’m trying to make the most of lockdown. Did I reach my goals? Keep reading to find out.

Writing Plans

  • Participate in StayHomeWriMo. – Yes! Using StayHomeWriMo to reconnect with my WIP. I’ve been connecting with other writers on Twitter. I even set up a proper desk area to work in.
  • Keep working on initial suspect interviews. – Yes, but pacing those introductory interactions has been tricky. (Or maybe I’m overthinking things.)
  • Write a little (~200-300 words) everyday – I’ve done a bunch of freelance work this month, does that count? Regarding my WIP, I haven’t written everyday, but I have been writing. Note to self: Figure out work/writer balance.
  • Brainstorm new scenes. – I have, actually. I’m brainstorming scenes that my WIP needs as opposed to meaningless fluff just to bump the word count up. Letting those creative juices flow while on lockdown.

Reading Goals

  • Read entire first draft. – I’m reading through my first draft and taking notes. By taking a step back and looking at the whole picture, it’s helped my writer’s block and showed me what I need to work on plot wise.

What do you guys think of my goals? And what are your writing plans for this month? Talk to me in the comments!

Write with Heart,

Lady Jabberwocky

    1. Geez, that’s a tough question, because I’m the same way. There’s always something to tweak and change. For me, I’ve been brainstorming to make my WIP story more substantial and to reach a certain word count. Maybe in your case, consider letting someone else read your work, for constructive feedback. At the end of the day, you gotta take a chance and trust your story is complete, just the way it is.

      Hope that helps. Best of luck in your writing endeavors.
