Rachel Start Date: February 10, 2009
Goal for the day: 100 words

Actually reached 249 words in a new story today. Working title "Catatonic". About a woman,Liza Parker, who has a live in nurse to help her with everyday things because she is,you guessed it, catatonic. Or is she?

message 6: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Hey all! I think this group was what I needed to get myself back into a routine. Kinda like Weight Watchers for writers.

Word Count: 312

Still working on Catatonic. I think Liza Parker's gonna end up being like Joan Crawford a la Mommy Dearest.

I'm bantering about in my head starting a short story about zombies set in an internet chat room but I keep getting stuck on screen names for the characters that say something about those characters. Like screen names do. :)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments LOL- Weight Watchers... *laughs hysterically*

Wouldn't that mean that we would be helping you write less instead of more?


message 9: by Rachel (new)

Rachel I just meant the accountability part...which reminds me I gotta write 100 words before bed


message 10: by Rachel (new)

Rachel alright so I had a late start this morning and didn't have time to write anything before work. Since I haven't been to bed yet, i still count what I just wrote as today's word count: 256. Day off tomorrow, going to shoot for a higher goal.

Well, he's been alive for about 3 1/2 years, so it's okay. She wasn't TOO sad about it. But still, a pet's a pet.

I'm sorry Tink. :/ I hope you're having a better day today.


message 24: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 4362 comments Umm... actually, it's kind of been just a suckish weekend. But thanks for the sympathy. So far, the best part has been that I just wrote a screaming match in Chapter 7 of Cassie, which is up by the way. Anyway, it was really fun to write.

message 35: by Rachel (new)

Rachel ok wrote a paragraph in the Paragraphs topics that is 75 words long so that brings my total today up to 179, perfectly respectable. I really like the paragraph too, might have to use it in this ghost story I have.

Rachel February 26, 2009

argggh...have not written anything in the lasr week and get really frustrated when I try to add on to anything existing because I can't remember where I left off without reading it and then I run out of time to add anything. On a happier note, saw Confessions of a Shopaholic today and was inspired to write a review of it. When i finish it I think it'll be the first post in a movie blog I've been wanting to start for a while. Gotta grab motivation when it comes.
