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.

As I suspected, last week was full of random, but fun stuff done with my friend Allason and not much writing. That was really okay though since I had kind of planned on it. In other news, I did manage to actually read an old script that I want to re-work. So that’s progress.
This week I want to further deconstruct the script I want to re-work. I also want to get ready for the school year by planning some blog posts. I feel like I’ve been saying that for weeks now. I don’t know what’s stopping me or why I’m so hung up on it.
