I read the most beautiful article today sent to me by my beloved partner. (See image below) She sees how hard I work and the daily goals I set for myself. There is much I want to achieve. Thank you my love for seeing the achievement of my goals with me!
Day 10 of Agent Search:
You are looking for a writer who not only sets goals for herself, but knows how to meet deadlines.
The above image of Octavia Butler’s personal goals is inspiring. It reminds me of the vision I have for myself. And so today I keep going. I keep moving. I keep pushing. I keep writing.
Today I am thinking about sacrifice, the sacrifices that must be made… the sacrifices my character is willing to make to have what she wants.
As I began to write today’s blog on goals on sacrifice my character began to tell me the story of her sacrifices. She took me on a lovely journey back in time where I got to be an observer at a religious event. These are the wonderful surprises that happen during the writing process that stop us… and when this happens we must pay attention!
Today was a good writing day! I have met writing goals… I accomplished 4 and 1/2 pages of scene.
I WORK! I WRITE! I STAY WITH IT! EVERYDAY I WRITE! AND I AM REMEMBERING TO SLOW DOWN!
(1) I know about sacrifice… (Ask of your story, character, scenes, symbols or themes every question you would ask about their motivation and intention. What do we want to say?) Set timer for (1 hour)
Check in later. Happy writing!
