Writing Tasks

Writing Tasks

Here are my writing tasks and accomplishments:
  • Received feedback on Dawn's Rise from the website. The feedback centered on these main complaints/observations:
    1. Too much description, not enough action in the beginning.
    2. The prologs are unnecessary and somewhat offputting.
    3. People didn't quite understand what/why things were happening, and didn't get involved with the characters.
    4. Too many adverbs.
  • Finished my NaNoWriMo story. I really like the character Ellie. I want to go back and create a short story around her, but I'm not sure how to make it science fictiony.

Here are some things I want to get done in the next few weeks:
  • Submit a couple more chapters from Dawn's Rise to Critters.
  • Write up some "interviews" of my characters. This may help me to know them better.
  • Write up some commentary on 30 Days so I can decide what to do with it. I think I can just put comments on all the posts.
I think I'm going to take it easy the rest of the year though...with all the holidays. I want to also focus on getting stuff done around the house.


  1. Congrats on finishing NaNoWriMo! I enjoyed your blogovel (novblog?) very much. Good luck with your goals for next year, and let me know if you want to do some cross-critiquing.

  2. Blogvel :)

    Cross critiquing is always good. BTW I'm not sure who you are since your name doesn't link anywhere.
    I'll try putting a message on the blog that I think is yours...
