Writing About Writing (week of June 17)

They say if you want to be good at something you need to practice every day.  I started Writing About Writing as a way of keeping myself accountable for how much I was writing outside of my school work.  Everything counts.  Emails, journals, scripts, blogging, even excessive tweeting.
Over time this space has become a way of keeping track of weekly goals in other areas of my life as well as writing.  A statement of what I’ve done, and what I want to do.  A weekly record of my successes and failures, for better or for worse.

Monday: journal (1)
Tuesday: blog – moving
Wednesday: lists
Thursday: journal (5)
blog – this post
Friday: journal (3)
Saturday: journal ()
Sunday: journal ()

Apparently my goal for last week was note taking.  Ha!  Oh man, that’s laughable considering how many notes I’ve taken.  Pitiful really.  I was really glad to have things pretty well planned out blog-wise for the week though, even though I changed Thursday last minute (you’ll see the post I had scheduled next week).

My main goal this week is to get internet access, but perhaps I would get more done without.  Just being in this town has me itching to start again on a script, which is exciting since I haven’t even given a thought to any screen-based stories in over a month.  Perhaps revisiting my Spring semester spec or last Fall’s original?

Since I only have a week before classes start, I’d like to spend some time pre-writing and planning out my blog posts for July.  I want to be able to focus as single-mindedly as possible on school next month and having an arsenal of pre-written content would be a big help.

Also that last of the moving!  All in all I have a week before I am going to be returning to school.  Ideal world: I’m able to organize myself to ship my things from Chicago before I start school.  It could take much longer in which case I have to establish a routine without the majority of a kitchen, a proper bed or a desk.  Not impossible, but I may have to change my routine a bit when I get my things.
