Another Tuesday edition because I sort of got carried away yesterday writing Eléonore (a very good thing)!
It’s been a good week for writing, but I’m still grappling with some life choices as I try to find a way to break out of my rut of routine and make writing my career. That’s the dream, right? 😉
As I’ve already mentioned, I’ve been focusing most of my energy on Eléonore lately, trying to hit my goal of 45k for the first draft. I’ve set myself weekly goals and right now I’m trying to hit 10k by tomorrow (Sept. 7th). As it stands, I’m sitting in middle of 7k after yesterday’s 2,374 word count 🙂 Couldn’t be happier with the progress I’m making and the way the story is going. If it continues this way, well… let’s not catch chickens when eggs are still whole.
Here’s a little snippet, just to give you a taste.
The small condo that I called home was on the third floor of a complex. It wasn’t the cheapest thing in Montreal, but it wasn’t exactly the cream of the crop either. It made do for the purposes it had to serve—not that there were many.
Provide shelter: Check.
Close to work: Check for day. Check for night.
Remain outside the radar of possible demonic enemies…
I’m also partaking in the monthly hashtag created by Bethany that offers authors a chance to share their works in progress. It’s such an amazing community and I love to discover all the talent and stories that my fellow writers possess. I’m sharing both Pirate Eyes and Eléonore this month. Here are just some of them…
What I’ve Been Watching
March 2017 cannot come soon enough!
One of my childhood favourites–if not the top–I’ve been worried about the live-action not doing the animated feature justice. But Dan and Emma seem to have good chemistry already and my hopes are lifting 🙂
Also, for people like me who still delight in animated movies and watch them for the joy of it, there’s this little tidbit of news that might excite you…
Yep! Anastasia‘s coming to broadway! It showed on a smaller level already in Connecticut, but previews in New York begin March 23rd 2017 with an opening marked for April 24th! Tickets please 🙂
How has your week been? Anything exciting to share? Let me know 🙂
Take care friends!
May inspiration flow like ink upon your quill,
