The Am Writing Board

As you probably (hopefully) know by now, I am mostly on my other blog, The Blog of Beth Overmyer. I'm keeping this Blogger blog because I have quite the backlog. Or whatever you want to call all those posts from the past. And I like you guys.

Anyhoosie, with that out of the way, I thought I'd talk about my Am Writing Board. Behold:

This ^ is an example of my weekday board. I clear it when I get to Friday, and then write in the three days for the weekend.

Why, you ask? Well, it keeps me motivated. I try to post pics of the board on Facebook, no matter how crummy the word count. Accountability, transparency, and all that good stuff.

Well, my goal is to write at least 400 words a day: 200 on the goblets novel, 200 on the new project. And for February, add in the chaos of finishing and revising a literary novel. So that's one high fantasy, one Georgian fantasy, and one literary...all worked on every day next month. It'll be interesting, keeping characters and plotlines straight, but it'll be fun.

I do love a good challenge!

Bye for now!

Breaking Radio Silence

Hello and happy New Year! I hope 2016 has been treating you well. If not, we only have 358-ish days left of it to endure.

As for me...Well, I'm here. And I'm not here. The truth is, running two blogs, writing, and social networking is le difficult. Oui. Ouchie.

Not to mention that fact that WordPress is oh so much shinier. (Can I say that here? I mean, I can. I did. But MAY I?)

Writing is...going on. Yup. I am a little off-schedule to meet my goal of 100,000 words by the end of the year, but I still have time ;)

Well, must dash. Lots of things to do before I hit the hay at 5:30 AM. Yes, I am ridiculously tired, but you digress. Lots to do. Like stare at Twitter until I think of something clever to say. Oy vey. Wish me luck, Chuck.

Keep your pen on the page,
