A slight problem I had when signing up for the A to Z challenge was would I be able to get my Are You Writing Now? post in at the end of the month? I didn't want to cheat, but then I got inspiration as you can see by the post title. Go me!
Okay, for those of you visiting from the challenge and don't know what AYWN is. The intention is to set monthly goals and at the end of the month blog about those goals, whether or not you've achieved them or not and visit other blogs participating and give them encouragement and support for their goals. You can also tweet the hashtag #AYWN to find blog posts or tweet encouragement.
It's a small group so far and our posts tend to be sporadic. But it's been helpful to me. I'm not one to set goals so I wasn't sure if I'd even be able to keep them. My first month, I was happy to report I had reached all my goals. Next month, I scraped my goals for completely new ones that I met. This past month, my goals... well, I did good and bad.
I wanted to reread Being Vampire and the third Influence short to see if Inspiration sparked. I didn't get a chance to read Being Vampire any, but I did read the Influence short and added about 1000 words to it. I also wanted to rewrite an older story and I picked Leaves of Fall. I have about 20,000 left on it, but hit a snag with a plot hole I'm not sure I can fix. Am planning on rewriting from that spot from scratch with only the basic plot in mind. Still, a goal almost reached. Last goal was the A to Z challenge. I know what my Z post will be so I'm calling that goal achieved.
Overall, not too bad. Didn't help that I got distracted by a shiny new idea. That's okay because that will be one of my goals for this month: Finish shiny new story idea. I am also going to roll over the goals I didn't achieve last month. So try to read what I have on Being Vampire and see if inspiration sparks and try to finish the rest of Leaves of Fall.
