#WriterRecharge-Update Week 2

Happy President's Day.

Hopefully you have today off and are enjoying the time and not listening to children fight like I am.  I've pulled out the Lego Movie bribe- “kids who fight don't get to go.” So far it seems to be working.

Here is my weekly #WriterRecharge update. It's really wonderful participating in this. I like having goals and being accountable for them. Which makes me toy around with the idea of getting Scrivener…Anyone have thoughts regarding Scrivener?  Thanks to Sara BirenKaty UppermanAlison MillerLiz Parker, and Elodien Nowodazkij for doing all this.


Again, this feels as if it's not been a very productive week. That may be in part to having given up one of my writing days for appointments but when I teased it all out…I came out ok. Not as much as I wanted, but still.

Total work count for the week: 4675 – I spent a fair amount of that adding to chapters and reworking a character.

Total work count combined: 7175

Word count left to accomplish: 12,825

I have not tackled more of my synopsis but I took a webinar regarding synopsis that was tremendously helpful 🙂

I hope to work on my short story today in between the bickering, Olympics, the Lego Movie, and maybe teaching my youngest Chutes and Ladders. That's lofty aspirations but I'm game to take them on. Hope you found last week productive and next week even more so.

Keep Moving Forward!

    1. I took copious notes. I’ll give them to you. It was by an agent who said the synopsis is just as important as your novel because it’s a tool that sells your book. Houses look at it to see if the pacing is throughout the book. Then she broke down a way to tackle them. Took some of the overwhelming aspect out of it.

  1. It’s amazing how you can still make progress despite the distractions of life if you keep plugging away every day to do as much as you can. Well done, Kristi!

    I’m dreading my synopsis. I wrote one for a previous novel, and it was like sucking all the fun out your favorite story. But I know some agents want one, so it’s one of the necessary evils of the business. *sigh*

    All the best with your synopsis, and all the other writing you want to get done this week, Kristi! 🙂
