Moving in the Write Direction

It's Friday!! I feel like this week would never end - mainly because I am uber excited. About what, you ask?

I am going to WRITE this weekend.

I mean, actually (re) start and work on my MS. And while I know most of you are already doing this everyday, because--well, that's what we're supposed to be doing, I haven't been. *Hangs head in shame*

I've done my little exercise, my characters are ready and I'm just going to STARt. If I wait until I do a plot outline, etc., I'll keep changing things, and end up going backwards.

So this entire weekend will be dedicated to writing.

On a side note, I am also toying with a few ideas for weekly features (to be revealed in the next little while, so stay tuned :) )

How about you? What are your plans for the weekend? Do they involve writing?

Regardless, I hope you have a great one :)

Good luck with your writing this weekend! I have today off, so I'm writing up a storm today. :)

The Red Angel said...

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog! :) Character profiling is a little tedious at first, but after a couple times you realize that they're actually really helpful. :D

My plans for the weekend consist of packing for my trip to China on Tuesday. XD I plan on taking journaling up again; I took a break from that but after the past few months I've realized I really really miss it.

Best of luck on writing!! Tell your characters I say hello. :P

Ooh, these weekly features sound very interesting. Can't wait to see!

I've been peeking around your blog and really like I'm seeing so far, so I've decided to follow. :) Can't wait to read more!!

Writing and swimming....because it's HOT in Cali. And whatever else :) I love those weekends!

Janet Johnson said...

I always try to sneak writing in there, but alas, it often doesn't happen.

JustineDell said...

*Sigh* I wish I was writing. We've got company coming over and a horse show on Saturday. I'm booked! Boo :-(

Hope you make some good progress!

Well, I HOPE to write this weekend. In between home renovations and all the garden projects I'm sure my wife has for me. Herm....

Also, since it's Father's Day this weekend, I plan on milking that for a long lie on Sunday and perhaps breakfast in bed. :D

My plans probably should involve writing, but we'll see... I'd really like to go swimming, but only if our neighborhood pool is fixed.

I hope YOU have a great weekend writing! Try not to get distracted by blogs like I do.

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Hopr you have a great weekend writing.
I'll be, hopefully, doing the same. :)

Chris Catledge said...

I will write this weekend. I don't really like where my MS is going but something is better than nothing. Who knows I may end up liking it after all.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I hope your weekend is productive - filled with the perfect words at the perfect times! :-)

Jemi Fraser said...

It's been so busy this month, I'm really hoping to squeeze in some writing time too. I'll cross my fingers for both of us!

Melissa said...

I`m so jealous! You get to write. I have to write a paper, write software for my computer class and start prepping for finals. Next weekend I`m dedicating entirely to writing. I`m so excited.

Writing happens every day for me--& usually at night, too.

I hope you get a lot of writing accomplished this weekend!

Mohamed Mughal said...

This far into Sat, how's the weekend writing coming along? Great, I hope! Best wishes for a fountain of documented creativity,

Aubrie - Thank you! I hope you make great progress as well :)

Red Angel - You're welcome! Thank you for stopping by mine as well and for your kind words and well wishes. Ooh China - that sounds very exciting--I've always wanted to go. Have a great trip and good luck with your journaling!

Bekah - Sigh - I'm so jealous - Cali is another place on my list to visit. You're so lucky to live there. I hope you have fun!

Janet - Tell me about it!

Justine - It still sounds very eventful, and you might just get unexpectedly inspired! Thank you!

Simon - Um, so it looks like I got way too excited and miscalculated my time and did not account for Sunday *shifty eyes*. Based on that, plans might change a TAD--err.. thank you for the reminder! :D I hope you make a great dent in whatever task you undertake this weekend and get lots of rest. Happy Father's Day!

Amanda - Good luck! And have fun swimming if you do go - I find it so relaxing. Sigh, getting distracted by blogs is like... my life :D.

Lindsay - Thank you! Same to you :)

Chris - You're absolutely right. Best of luck!

Shannon - Aw, thank you - that's very kind of you.

Jemi - I hear you - it has been a crazy month. I hope you make some progress too.

Melissa - Oh man - that really sucks, but good luck with it all (though I'm sure you'll do amazing). And you have next weekend to look forward to :)

Lisa - That is so good - I wish I could be so disciplined. Thank you very much for your kind wishes!

WritingNut said...

Mohamed - It actually isn't going too badly - I've made SOME progress albeit not significant. Sigh--the distractions - right now I am reading blogs :D. Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind wishes :)

Julie Musil said...

Good for you! I hope you're making lots of progress.

I just got back from a meeting with my critique group, which is always productive. Now I will revise, using their excellent suggestions!

WritingNut said...

Julie - Thank you very much! Good luck with your revisions!

Melissa said...

I've given myself yet another deadline, so I'll definitely be writing when I can squeeze the time in:)

WritingNut said...

Melissa - Good luck, and thank you so much for stopping by!
