A Writing Journey

So I’m really liking JotterPad. I can use it no matter where I am because I almost always have my phone with me. Like today, I was on break at work and taking a quick stroll outside and (you guessed it) writing. Sure, it wasn’t as relaxing as just walking, but it was a pretty great feeling knowing that I was working towards one of my other goals.

I didn’t write quite as much today (I’m sitting at 3841 words and don’t know if I’ll be adding to that tonight) but I’m okay with that. I worked ahead yesterday (when it flows, it flows, you know?) and so I am still almost a thousand words ahead of schedule. And 10 more days to go.

So a brief bit about the short story I am writing. For a while I’ve been thinking “I should try my hand at romance, just to test my skills.” Well, I don’t know if I could do a whole novel, but this short story romance is working out well. And it’s not quite a typical romance (admittedly I haven’t read very widely in the genre, so it could have it’s niche), and I really don’t particularly care for it, but I am proud that I’m writing something outside of my genre, and prouder still that I’m taking it seriously, even though I don’t like it (THANK YOU college for teaching me the value of putting your all into things you don’t like). Will I post it here when I’m done? I haven’t decided yet. It’s a romance so by it’s nature, there’s going to be a scene that I am not quite comfortable putting out there, but I also feel like I should share the dang thing since it’s my challenge! Maybe I’ll edit it out for the sharing.We’ll see how things go.

Anyway, hope you are doing well!

Write on,
