For the love of Spreadsheets

How I used Google docs and spreadsheets to lose 20 pounds (give or take a few) and get into the habit of writing.

NaNo or Bust?

When NaNoWriMo is almost half over and you're 10% done, is it hopeless? Or was it a completely foolish endevor from the start?

Daily what?

What would a daily blog even consist of? All I got is cats, work, and sex. Mutually exclusive, of course.

Known for what?

Do people ever get known for doing a billion little things? Jack of all Internet moderate fame?

Change in Reading = Change in Writing?

I haven't sat down to read a physical book in years. So is it surprising I can't sit down and write one? My mind occasionally stays on the current project, but often winds up somewhere else. Perhaps it's time for Flash Fiction?

Too big for your britches

This last online project has gotten larger and longer than I had anticipated. Writing something week by week has its struggles but on the other hand, I would have never gotten to 78k doing it as a whole project.

To Focus or Not?

My problem isn't writer's block per se. It's writer's focus. So what do I do? Force myself to not write till I can think about the 1 project again. Or, work on whatever comes to mind in little tid bits and never get anything finished? I've recently started trying to write out my random thoughts as 'sketches'. I'm not sure if it will ever go anywhere, but at least I'm not wasting energy or time. At least that's what I think when I can't get something out of my mind. Though, I'm not sure if that's the best decision. Because ironically, I am surprised by what I have done when I am 'forced' to focus. Posting online isn't required by any means, but telling myself people are waiting for the next chapter has made me write the same storyline almost every week. And now the latest one is over 75 thousand words. Which is mind blowing for someone so spacey as me. Between my mind wanderings and working on the 1 story, my novel and various story lines haven't been touched much. And without something finished and wrapped neatly between two covers, I feel like an impostor. I can't really say I'm a writer because all I really do is just think about writing. In the end, I'm torn between giving up potentially great ideas about random storylines, or forcing myself to write bland crap to be able to say it is done.
