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.

Last week was mostly about school work and more school work. The class had a few tours earlier in the week and were able to do a soft pitch of our show/game/whatever. It was good to be able to give it a try as that will be our entire existence this week. I’m happy with the amount of journaling I did this week, and I happily got slowly return to my quiet times. Yay!
My goal for this week is to give specialized pitches to each of the companies we’re pitching to. I want to be sure to focus on an aspect of my IP that falls in line with what the company typically works on. I think this will help me go in with my best possible option.
Anything I get to do beyond that is a bonus. I’m hoping that part of that bonus will include a few blog posts, but we’ll see how that goes. It might be a bit of a sparse week for the blog, but next week I should be back in full force. In fact, I have a very long idea list for next week that I’m excited to dive into.
