So last week I was camping, and the signal on the campsite was appallingly bad. Not that it mattered much, because you don’t go camping to be on the internet. But it did make things much more difficult in terms of posting once a day. I still managed, but it seems as though it was a litter too much to post twice in one day. And so, the post I wrote last week did not get posted, and somehow disappeared into the ether.
I have decided, under these circumstances, to ignore the goal I set myself last week. I can’t really remember it but it was something about coming up with multiple ideas for each prompt. Which I still think is a good idea. But more on that later. In lieu of that goal I decided to work with the goal from the week before. Which was:
Edit each piece at least once before publishing.
Now, I have not done this. I know I haven’t. But maybe that’s because the goal didn’t inspire me. It didn’t make me want to write more. It didn’t challenge me creatively. It challenged me in other ways, but not creatively. And so I think, even thoguh I did not meet this goal, I ham going to think of a new one for this week.
As I talked about before, I wanted to think about different ideas and concepts for each prompt. I think it would be good for me to be able to branch out from the usual romance/comedy things that I write. For me, the best piece I have written so far this year has been Company, and that was largely due to the fatc that it made me feel so much. Romance is easy in a novel. You get to know the characters, and then when they fall in love you are happy fro them. It is harder in a short story. I would like to, at some point, try to focus on Romance. But not this week. And there’s where the goals come in. For the next few week, I am going to set myself the goal of writing a different genre each week. And this week it is:
Each piece of writing has to be in the Science Fiction genre
These genre’s will be based off this list, which is what comes up when you google ‘book genres’:
So! Exciting stuff.
Until next week.
