June 2013 #writemotivation Update Number 1

Um...wait...it's June?!

WHERE THE HELL DID MAY GO????

Seriously, I can't even remember last month or even what I did. I know what I didn't do, that was write. I did think, I did read, and I did stress, but not much writing.

I also learned that my muse has decided to turn into a teenage girl. And she's insisted I join Pinterest so she can post pics of boys.

If I make it through the month without killing my muse, I'll call it a win.

Anyway, it's the first of the month and another goal month, which is good. Hopefully this will keep me on track and I won't get lost in the depths of Skyrim...too much...

So here are my goals (with a slight addendum)
  1. Try not to kill my muse So far I haven't, but it's still looking dicey
  2. Write up character stuff and whatnot for “Snapshot”, aka the Uber Plot Bunny. I am making myself a goal of 1 chapter a week. I should be able to do that without issue.
  3. Blog once a week
  4. Cheer on my buddies
  5. Try not to obsess about HJ being at Mentor Agent
It is going to be a busy month. I have an upcoming guest post with the amazing Jessica Therrien on the 7th and I am also participating in a sekrit project with my friend Carey Torg. I will post links on that later. It sounds awesome and hopefully my part won't suck so bad.

And a random cute gif...

'Till Next Time.

  1. If it makes you feel any better, the character currently taking over my head is a 19-year-old boy. (Of course, he hasn't insisted I join Pinterest to post pictures of girls...or boys, for that matter.)

    *hugs* Good luck on not killing your muse and on writing your new WIP! I have the faith that you'll both survive the month (somewhat) intact. :-D

  2. But teenage girls are so much fun. :) If you need cute boy suggestions for the Pinterest, I can totally help.

    Currently, my muse is an angsty 25-year-old male psychic. He doesn't care about Pinterest; he's trying to keep a low profile. :)

    1. LOL. I think I have some good boy suggestions. I am looking for a jerk football player for my previous novel's pinterest board though. :D

  4. Usually the 1st half of the year drags. But not this year! I'm with you on where the hell did it all go question! Seriously! Ugh! And I don't see it getting any better any time soon, at least for me! Good luck with your muse and I'm here when you need me, just give me a shout out since I've been AWOL from Twitter these last few weeks.

  5. I'm ninjaing in here bwah hah hah...

    I'm on my laptop. Do not kill the muse, simply threaten her with death. Not sure that'll work, but since I kill so many characters, it usually works with mine ;) <3

    1. LOL. She's pretty stubborn and usually rolls her eyes at me when I make threatening gestures. I'm my muse's bitch.

  7. forcing you to join pinterest? gah! the things these characters do to us! i say focus all that frustration into making her life hell - in your book, of course. it's a writer's sweetest revenge after all.
