Weekly Recap 3/14

Even trying to think up a title for this type of post was mind-boggling. I like using words that many forget about, especially when it come to the title. But with this type of post, there isn’t a lot to choose from.

Here it is, for better or worse.

  • Ugly Baby Challenge Course – I still haven’t written enough flash fiction for this course. I have found a few fresh ideas for them though at @writingpromts over at Twitter.
  • WIP (work in progress) – I came across a whole series of posts at Janice Hardy’s Fiction University that changed my whole outlook on writing a novel. Way back last May, I started a story showing the journey of a woman, exhibiting how she changes with the experiences she has. A fourth of the way into the first draft, I realized I was running around in tangents. So what do I do? I put the project on the top shelf. Now with this series, I’m eager to try this story idea again.
  • The days of Spring seem to be upon us here in Tennessee judging the fact of how much rain we’re getting. Yes, it must be early because the rain isn’t suppose to come until April. It’s been making me feel down in the dumps so I’m turning on lights during the day to keep the inside of my home a little brighter. It is helping. If you’re having this feeling, you might want to try this. 😉

Well, that’s all for this first week of recaps. I’m hoping to expand as I go along here.

For those of you that aren’t getting this post until Sunday, I’ll try harder next week to get it out sooner. ❤

    I think a weekly recap is a solid idea–especially for the person creating it. Sometimes just writing down what happened and your plans for the next chapter of it (and I don’t mean that in an entirely literary sense) is a way of stimulating energy and shaking up some creativity.
    With spring comes new growth. Here’s to having that apply to your list of writing projects.

      Thank you for the support. Yes, telling others about my intentions is something I am hoping will keep me on track better. 🙂

    I think your idea for the novel sounds great, Glynis. Spring is in the air here too but its a little gloomy today. I’m fortunate to have big windows that let in a lot of light, but they’re cold in the winter!


    • Glynis Jolly

      The idea is an inspiration of a novel I read not long ago that was written by an English author. Although the story wasn’t fast-moving, I enjoyed the read. I prefer the windows. I can always put a sweater on if I feel cold. 😉


      • Cat

        Yes, I also prefer the windows 🙂

    Ugly Baby Challenge Course – how did you get involved with this, Glynis? It sounds interesting!

    You sure have your nose to the grindstone, Glynis. ❤ ❤
    Hints of spring is in the air here as well.


    • Glynis Jolly

      Tess, I just feel that I can’t let it go until I come to a place where I either am exhausted or burned out. The first signs of either and I’ll put it down for a while. 😛


      • Let's CUT the Crap!

        I burned out a couple years ago. I thought my brain was on fire and I was a walking zombie. Don’t push to that point. ❤


        • Glynis Jolly

          Yep, I’ve done that too so I’m pretty sure I can avoid that. Now I’m pacing myself with this new way I found from Fiction University. 😛


          • Let's CUT the Crap!

            G.o.o.d. I’m taking a week off. Am unplugging as soon as I catch up on some of these comments. I need a break and it’s spring break so a perfect time. Anyway, this week is brutal. ❤

      Wow! That’s a surprise. I kind of remember hearing the word long ago in my past. Chances are it was in the school auditorium during one of those lectures about what we should and shouldn’t do.
