Just for Fun: What Are You Writing?

We all have one or more projects that are in progress. Whether it’s for NaNoWriMo, for a blog post, for an upcoming book or just for fun, many of us are working on several projects.  Let’s talk about our current works and how we balance the effort on one or more projects or the effort to balance writing with the other requirements life has for us.

So… what are you writing?

  1. I would say, not very well.When I come home, I have a lot of problems there, mostly with my son. But that’s OK, I love him dearly. Sadly, can’t have enough time to do what I scheduled to do. Also, I still have to organise myself, and figure out what is important, what’s not. Actually, sometime ago I was sitting for exams and had to prepare myself and read a lot of materials. After I passed, I was so surprised that I was able to do everything and on time. Secret to it? Organisation, motivation, did not waisted my time on things, which could be done later.I had a clear plan and vision of a problem. I had a big ladder in my flat, and on almost each and every step of it I left a book, opened on a page to read. And each and every time I was going up and down, I was able to read and learn a piece of information.Obviously, bigger topics required more time and concentration. Morale of this story- may be spread your work, do it in small chunks between big pieces, but continuously, don’t waist your time and just, bloody, do it!

  2. Right now, I’m writing my next TA post!

  3. So I generally juggle two WIP–plus whatever is being published. Since I’m waiting for Light Side of the Moon to be edited. Right now, I’m writing a contemporary paranormal fantasy novel entitled the Grove about a woman trying to stop ancient gods from rising on the Oregon Coast. My second WIP is still untitled but is a haunted house story set somewhere in California. However now I have a third project, because The Martlet (Epic Fantasy) was just rejected so I have to figure what’s next for that one.

  4. Working on The Coast of Carolina !

  5. Right now, I’m working on three projects —

    1) A book of poetry with the working title “Faith, Family, and Fearful Freedom”
    2) A compilation of quotes on the Psalms with the working title, “Sing with Understanding”
    3) A re-working a novella I wrote nearly thirty years ago, now called, “Finding Life (in obvious places)”

  6. Every November, Team Netherworld works on the VILE Awards posts. This certainly isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. You have to have exceedingly wacky sensibilities to enjoy it. For those who like stuff that’s wacky, raunchy, and way out to lunch, the blog in question hosting these tales of questionable taste can be found at http://sphereofmusic.blogspot.com
    Some of our team members have done NaNoWriMo in the past, and, to a person, have said that they hated it. I’ve never wanted to try it. I don’t think I’d enjoy writing that way.I have too many obligations in “real” life. Writing is supposed to free me from those, not create more!

  7. To each their own, I guess, but I do Nano because it gives me a deadline. I’ve given myself deadlines in the past and I have a hard time following them. But when I do Nano, I feel the pressure to finish on time and I do.

    For the last few months I’ve been working out a new novel in my head, and only recently got the pieces put together to get it rolling, but since Nano was so close I chose to sit on it until November started so I could hash it out then. That’s what I’m working on now. And it’s turning out great!

  8. I am working on the ideas for NaNoWriMo this year (haven’t started yet for many reasons). I’m also working on a blog post describing my recent bathroom remodeling project as well as a couple of short stories. Life sure has a way of getting in the way of all of it, though.

  9. I’ve participated in NaNo for a number of years. This year I did not feel compelled to do so. I’m using the time this month to work on, edit, etc. several WIP’s, and farm them out to a Beta reader. It’s working out well. I feel I am accomplishing a lot this way. One thing is for sure, I’ll never do NaNo again. Been there, got the t-shirt. Best of luck to all of you writers out there.

  10. you don’t have to think of nano as an intense pressure-cooker obligation. it can just be a month when you remember to put writing higher on your priority list..

  11. I’m currently writing the same 3 books I’ve been working on for the past 12 years or so. All are complete but all need editing. Then I need to get off my spreading behind and do the stuff I really dislike: querying. Still, I’ve written 3 entirely different books, and that’s not bad. At least I pat myself on the back.
