I intend to start going to the Western writing group from now on. I intend to have something prepared to share at each meeting. I am going to get a new stylus pen for my ipad so its not such a pain to write on it. I like the idea of thinking at night about my story, and getting up in the morning and writing it. I submitted my story to guideposts. I started a new one, but I'm not sure its going to gel. I had 3 different ideas, sometimes the ideas sound great in my head, but when I start to write, its not as great as it was in my head.

I had a dream early this morning, with details about Fantasy Farm. It is really hard for me to get into this habit. I am tired. I am distracted. I am fearful for some reason.

700 words a week is not that all difficult. Just do 150 a day, Most of your reports are close to half of that. And i'm sure that it did'nt take that long.

Make sure that you don't have another red period above. You can do it. We all have it in us to achieve that which we set out to achieve.

I did make progress. I feel like i am just trying to gresevthe wheeks mainly and get a habit established.

What I was hoping to accomplish withis goal was to grease the wheels so to speak and create a new writing habit. I think it's working. I had my first successful week. And I started to get into the groove of it and enjoy the process. Staring with writing personal experiences which is easy as pie, but will that kind of thing sell. Well I guess we will see

4days before the report is due and still nothing. I was up by 6 this morning and writing on my mind. I cleaned the kitchen. Put in a load of laundry. And had a difficult conversation with Rick. Which all added up to nothing written. I checked my old computer files and notebooks. I know I recently had a great idea for. A story and wrote it Dow. Somewhere!

5 days before the first report is due. 700 words, does not seem like a lot. I've probably already written that in misc FB posts and an email to Jeremy. My back is sore. I went to bed late last night, went to a class last night. Found out bad news at work. I feel like I need to get organized first. I mean geez, which short story idea, or general direction should I go in? I need to look at my notes for inspiration. And when am I going to do this? My week is booked to the gills. Do I need to let go of some activities?
