Okay, so, to get myself writing today, I may have committed an act of fanfiction. It wasn't big. A simple Man of Steel drabble. But it did get me into work mode, and sometimes you need that, right?

What gets you into work mode?

Anyway, let's look at our July Write Motivation goals, shall we?

1) Get halfway through the edits on WHITE SPIRIT.

I don't think I'm revising right. I'm on the third draft, and I'm adding in new scenes. To be fair, I did cut a couple that were dead weight. But I've noticed I needed to fix the flow. Granted, I'm not adding as many as I did during the last draft, but I'm still adding. I like to think of it as fleshing out the characters, you know?

Meanwhile, I'm getting a better understanding of Tristan and McKenna and how their powers and relationship works. I'm very pleased.

2) Work on it every day.

In my defense, there was a holiday last week. I'm back on track as of today, though. Onward and upward.

You know, I've never written fanfic. I don't even know if I would know how! LOL
But, if you can write, anything, that's good! It's practice and how we can get those creative juices going! Good job!

Actually hon. Seriously. I think I added in a new scene in the fifth edit of TDP. It all comes down to what works. Sometimes adding in new scenes gives you that oomph you feel you were missing.
Sometimes edits just aren't as linear as we'd like.

Keep it up. Progress is progress - and yes, FanFiction IS writing.

Good luck!

Music and just opening Scrivener and staring it will usually get me going. Or a new idea.

Best of luck with your goals for July. Good things come to those who work for it! :)
