Last week was rather uneventful, as much of this break has been. Most of my writing was journaling, and wasn’t exactly ground breaking, however I was able to break out of a little bit of a rut by writing some fanfiction* and doing a writing challenge put on by terrible minds. I didn’t post it, but I am glad to be writing something new.
The writing challenge also sparked me to write up my own set of challenges for fanfiction. I call it a master list, and I haven’t written one up in ages. It’s sort of a choose your own adventure FF challenge creator. In one column is a list of characters, pairings, or friendships that I am interested in writing, and in a second column is prompt list, usually one word or phrase to spark something. These usually turn into a whole host of one shots and nothing much more, but it’s a good way to get my pen moving.
Next week is going to be busy with settling in to a new normal of living in LA. Mom and I are driving down there today and are moving all my things in. I’m excited to be getting started on this semester. Finally.
Writing-wise I’m hoping to do lots of journaling and get down some preliminary ideas for my projects this semester. I am going through the assigned reading and am taking a few notes of what I hope we’ll stalk about and things I want to incorporate into my writing practice. I’m trying to think of writing as a habit. One that if I get into, I will be able to keep up even if I don’t have a specific deadline to aim for.
*On occasion I write fanfiction. I don’t know where this falls in the category or professional or personal writing (probably somewhere along “other”), but it gets me writing and I’m happy for that if nothing else.
