The Week in Review: Week Four

As reported earlier, the first day of the forth week was somewhat of a disaster, but since then things have picked up and I got back into the swing.

The beta draft of Winter Wolves is under way, fleshing out on the recently completed synopsis. The last four days saw around 10500 words done on it, up to part of the way through the third chapter. It will need a polish up once done, but I am happy with the way it is coming along, even with my normally fairly pessimistic outlook on my writing.

These last four weeks I have gone past 50,000 words written, which, when though about, is a decent amount. Almost a short novel in length, just not the composition.

Next week. As some may have noticed, next week is Christmas. This means my writing next week will be all but non-existent. Between last minute shopping and a few days up at my parents with the family I doubt I will have much time to write. I may print out what is done so far and review it while away, but that may be the limit of it.

I am almost certainly going to experience some form of withdrawal while away. I have noticed more of late an itch when I am not writing, a need to be writing, even when doing other things I normally enjoy – reading, watching movies, even playing games – and as a hardcore gamer that is saying something.

    That’s when you know you’ve got the bug!
    Before I gave up WoW I used to still be writing before raid time… hubby would tell me when it had finished being formed and only then would I log into vent and bring the game window back up 😉
    Have a good Xmas, and I hope you manage to still get something done, even if its to prevent to itch getting too bad.

    I still play WOW actually (For the Horde!), though not as much as I could. Between 8 and 4, except for the occasional lunch break, I don’t play and try and concentrate on writing. And even when i am on, raiding and what not, I’m still thinking of writing, of plot ideas, of improvements….
