Word Count Wednesday 4/19


Word Count Wednesday

(I wrote this on so late! D= )



What am I working on?

Currently working on fleshing out the narrative that was due, I have been having a lot of trouble with it but I’m hoping to get it all sorted out.



Total Word Count?

900! (It should be way higher, but sometimes small victories are more important)



How do I feel about the process?

I’ve been having a really rough time with my work lately and I’m not entirely sure why. I’m not totally ready to talk about it here though. I might make a separate blog post, I haven’t decided yet.



What am I reading now?

I am not reading anything! I know that’s terrible but I’ve been very focused on art projects and this class lately so I just haven’t had time. I was also sick for awhile so I spent a lot of time asleep, I won’t lie that was nice, hahaha.

Word Count Wednesday 4/12

Word Count Wednesday

What am I working on?
Working on the next narrative, I’m stuck between finishing the one I turned in for the first assignment and starting another short story type one. I have also started the adventure story with the website we previewed in class. It is fun, but hard to determine what should happen next.

Total Word Count?
Not sure, I think I’m at about two pages?

How do I feel about the process?
Feeling okay, I wish I had more time for all of my assignments, ahaha. Easter weekend really threw me off.

What am I reading now?
Still on the podcast kick. I tried a new one I didn’t like about historical stories, it wasn't bad just not for me. I think it was something like “history uncovered”?

Word Count Wednesday 4/5

Word Count Wednesday

What am I working on?
Trying to figure out the dialogue assignment. I will probably have to text someone in my group tomorrow and make sure I am on the right track...I should have asked sooner, I know, haha.
I did help a friend of mine with a speech she wrote. She is campaigning for her local congress, so that has been super cool.
I plan on making some kind of actual blog post soon, I swear.

Total Word Count?
Unsure

How do I feel about the process?
I feel okay, I've been inspired to write a lot of essays about the state of the world and things in it lately. I am trying to stay focused on my classes for now though.

What am I reading now?
Recently started listening to the Unexplained podcast, really enjoying it. The stories are very interesting.

  Word Count Wednesday 3/29

Word Count Wednesday

What am I working on?
Right now I’m still trying to get caught up on everything in all of my classes. I had a bit of a bad weekend that ended with me not doing much of anything. I’ll get it figured out though!

Total Word Count?
Iunno


How do I feel about the process?
I feel okay, I have been very distracted lately so I’m just trying to get myself back on the right track. I’ve noticed I have a hard time just sitting down and writing, but I can talk to people for hours about what I want to write.

I’m just trying to stay as caught up as possible and keep on top of journal entries, which I have gotten terrible about.



What am I reading now?
I listened to the S-Town podcast from the crew that did Serial this weekend. It was not at all what I expected but definitely made me want to sit and finish the whole thing. I enjoyed it.

Word Count Wednesday 3/22


Word Count Wednesday
At least I remembered to do this within the correct week!

What am I working on?
Nothing has changed from last week, I have been super slammed with a lot of art projects that take a ton of time and have been trying to juggle those as well as work on some experiments for this class.

Total Word Count?
I think we all know at this point I don’t keep track, ahaha.

How do I feel about the process?
Feeling okay. Ordered a new iPad case, this one has a small keyboard attached. My hope is this will help make writing more accessible while I’m on the move. I’ve noticed a big issue I have is sitting at the computer and writing. I also dislike the slow process of writing with pen and paper. I will update on my progress involving this new toy tool next week.


What am I reading now?
I did not read anything but a text book for another class this week. I have however been listening to Podcasts to keep myself entertained at work. I have completely caught up on Lore and Missing Richard Simmons (that ending was weak). I’ve also FINALLY finished season 1 of Serial. I started season 2 but I don’t know how I feel about the new story she is telling. I might try one of the other Podcasts they plug during the Serial segments.

Word Count Wednesday

I am doing one this week for consistency sake.



What am I working on?

Tomorrow after work I’m going to be doing feedback for my group. I’m looking forward to reading their stuff again.



Total Word Count?

Still the same as my entry from last night, haha.



How do I feel about the process?

It’s going okay, I wish I got less distracted when working on this stuff though.



What am I reading now?

Still reading the fairy tales, also looking at retellings of various fairy tales. For the most part they all seem to be YA romance though, which isn’t quite what I’m looking for.

Word Count Wednesday 3/8


Word Count Wednesday

I forgot. Again.



What am I working on?

Working on getting caught up on experiments! I have really great ideas I would love to share with everyone but I still need to actually sit down and put pen to paper.



Total Word Count?

I haaaaave…like three different documents I'm working on, does that count?



How do I feel about the process?

Doing okay, I would like to be working on more but as usual I had a lot of projects due around the same time and I get focused on one thing and forget the rest.



What am I reading now?

Reading both books for classes, also brushing up on fairy tales from around the world for an art project.
