well -- most of my friends don't get this but I prefer to talk. I could talk on the phone for hours. But I love to write -- I need to do it more

Been noticing how few words we've been writing in the thread.

So, the question comes to mind: Is it easier for you to write or talk?

I've been writing mt 100 plus words daily basically just to get back into the habit of writing. Period. But it's adding up a number of good ideas and giving me direction. No love scenes among the chocolate and popcorn, but now that I think about it, maybe...

I get it with the word counts. Makes sense. Most of my love scenes are a scene in the chapter.

Yeah it is Abby. I asked in my RWA forum about length and was told around 5000 words was good or until I was happy with it. Since the chapters in this WIP are around 1200-1500 words it spread it out. But like I said, it's a pretty aggressive love scene when the character hasn't been that aggressive before. So I'm going to finish the scene and then try to trim it back some. Wish me luck!

Hellooooo...I know I've been MIA but I's so close to getting my WIP done (first draft at least!). I'm in the midst of a love scene (so far it's like 2 chapters long) and just realized the actions of my hero in the scene are a bit more aggressive then he'd been in any other part of the story. I think I'm going to have to back the sex stuff a bit.

I'm so excited to almost be ready to proof read it!

Yay!

It does add up though seems small at the time of writing. Plus, it's easy to get started thinking it's just 100 words and often you can write more than that. I miss the occasional day, like yesterday, but overall have been keeping up and am going to continue through January.

I'm impressed with your perseverance. I'll write 100 words a day for one week too, starting today! (Ouc, I can't believe I committed to that!) Thanks for (the very gentle kick in the butt.)

Making slow but steady progress. Writing only 100 words or so a day does take a while but it adds up over time. End of November I had around 33k on the novel and now I'm at over 40,000. Think the final draft will be over 60,000 and in January I might try to do 250 a day most days now that work will be calmer.

Keep forgetting I'm in this group. Oops.

I don't often write the weather because it fell into the cliche and most of the time doesn't move the plot forward or provide too much as I'm not very descriptive of setting in most of my stories. Though I did start a scene with weather once for a blogfest because the goal was to "break the rules" or something like that. It was fun.

I've done a little writing. I basically made a goal to write every day but all I have to do in order to succeed is write 100 words on a novel. So, it took over a week to finish a chapter but I've made it through chapter 13 at long last and my novel from this year's nanowrimo attempt now has over 37,000. Should get up past 40k at least by the end of the month if I keep going as I often get closer to 200 words a day. 100 is an easy number to hit as it's one long paragraph of a few short ones.

*laugh* That's the opposite of Florida. We have only two seasons, too. Summer and Not Summer.

I don't write around the weather, though every year at this time I start to think I should write a Christmas book. ;)

Do you write about the cold during warm days or vice versa?

Sometimes watching winter movies on a summer day makes me even hotter because of seeing all the coats, sweater, scarves, hats, gloves that people wear in the movies.

Oh, it's definitely the self-educating about the disease that causes the problem -lol. Thanks for pointing out the issue. I have a bad tendency to write confusing prose- and I suspect that's why you phrased your observations so obliquely, eh?

yes I think it is easier to read a book rather than write one. However, It may be easier to write that short story -- and keep the story and turn it into a book.

What I have learned is this: it starts with small steps. write a sentence, then a paragraph. then an essay. the more I write, I some how learn to expand that idea/topic

In the Orlando Sentinel newspaper an article on diabetes had this sentence about a man with the disease:

"Ensign, of St. Joseph, Mo., began by educating himself about diabetes, which makes him two to four times more likely to develop heart disease."

Sounds to me that his odds of having heart problems would be less if he hadn't educated himself about diabetes. emoticon

DEM: emoticon Sounds like you know what to do. Keep us posted, okay?

Does anyone ever get to the point where you think it is much easier to read a book than to write one?

Why do we write? (Would this make a good topic?)

I used to enjoy the Christmas holidays a lot but not so much since I'm older and alone. I wrote a piece about that once, but got so much flak about parts of it (not all of it without merit) I just stopped. Did I mention I'm easily discouraged? -about writing and weight loss and I suppose many other things as well. Guess it's time to resurrect that article, my self- esteem and my attitude about weight loss as well. That should keep me busy until January at least.

just to say hi

it does not matter how slow you go as long as you do not give up

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it you can become it

I've had some jobs where I was thrilled to be let go!

I read a fiction book about a gal who worked in a copy center job. She had so much time on her hands it was ridiculous. She was bored to tears. And then this guy walks in needing an order done for his online greeting card business. While talking with him, she doodles on a piece of paper. He makes it into a greeting card and they become partners. Because she works at this place, she gets a discount on the print jobs. They make money hand over fist. LOL! I loved that book! Very inspirational.
