Tuesday Post of Accountability!: Submissions and an Injured Finger

Every Tuesday you will be subjected to regaled by the writing progress I have made over the last week. But! I insist that I not be the only one exposing myself sounding off. Let your comments reflect what kind of suffering butt-kicking you have done too!

Okay, here’s my progress report:

1. Wrote rough draft of a three page short story I’m calling “The Last Typewriter in the World”…inspired by the fact that my mother just got me a typewriter for a Kerouac-like experiment that I shall be conducting shortly.

2. Submitted to four magazines. These are really my first submissions of the year. Working on novel-length pieces doesn’t leave you a whole lot of submittable material, but I spruced up a couple flash pieces and we’ll see how they do.

3. Thought about editing another short story and just wound up looking at it for a little while.

4. Worked on typing in handwritten chapters for TL, realized I was going to have to rewrite a chapter from another point of view and haven’t worked on it since out of frustration. (Plus my right index finger still hurt from all the handwriting…I really think I strained something and will try to take it easier on my hand by mixing the handwriting/computer entry a little faster.)

5. Finished blog posts for the week…and they’re lengthy so I think that counts as writing work.  =)

All writey guys?

  1. 1) Organized works in progress so all materials for each are in the same place.

    2) Finished 2 craft projects that were close to completion. Why is that listed here? Because they were hanging over me, and it proves I can finish things. At least to myself.

    3) Interviewed an expert for a future project.

    Piddling around the edges of actual forward progress, but it still felt good. Now to work on outlines for a couple projects.

    Promised by next Tuesday–complete expanded outline for MMG on cards.
