The purpose of wanting to spend a night a week here is simple- I need to make time to write more than just a post a day. I need to pay attention to these wonderful stories I've created and not finished yet. The characters in these stories have been practically screaming at me to let them out of my head and onto paper. So I'm going to make more time for them.
So far this year, I've managed:
- to eek out 20,375 words in Kipleyarren, the novel that I shared excerpts of in the beginning of the year (it was longer, but due to revision, I've cut out some things that didn't fit in with where I wanted to take the story)
- and in the new fiction novel -Dark Wings, started for the NaNoWriMo contest, I've eeked out 10,113 words of which I find interesting considering it only took me two months to write that much and nearly the last two years to write whats in Kipleyarren.
- I have also completed 30, 524 words in my Memoir entitled The Wing Seeker.
The fact that I continually posted here on my blog, nearly everyday last year with a few exceptions was a big help. Even if all I did was write a few lines here and there- it allowed my mind to roam with words in exploring life and its possibilities. I will continue to do that this year as well.
And most importantly are some very dear friends who have supported me along the way and will continue to support me with their encouragements and honest feedback- Triana & Lex who are my two best friends in the whole world and I could not do without them in my life, Shadow, Rick (you had better come back to blogger buddy!), Ajey & Annie, Hailey (who is an amazing friend of mine here in the real world- she's planning to bike across America this summer!), and all of the other blog friends on here who I may have failed to mention who have continually encouraged me. Thank You!
