So, how’s my week been?
- Write 1000 words a day. Done. I’m still playing with the novel idea and will at some point decide if what I’ve written so far will make it into a novel or if it’s just an elaborate back story leading into said novel. I’m also in the midst of writing a non-fiction piece. Not sure where I’m going to try to sell it yet, but I’m getting it written. It’s something that I’ve wanted to write about for some time.
- Master Scrivener. I’m using it with both projects, as it so happens. It really does help organize my thoughts.
- Learn to write left-handed. I haven’t been as faithful to this as I should be. Got to get back on the ball.
- Produce an article for publication every week. Hmmm… I heard from several of you last week that this is easier said than done. While it’s a good long-term goal (and something that I definitely want to do in the future), I need ideas. As I said above, I had one really good idea which I’m developing now. Time to get more ideas.
On the job search front, I completed my first week requirements for unemployment and sent my resume to three companies, two of which are full-time work-at-home jobs, the third a position at the local university. I have faith that I’ll find a job that will allow me to work remotely (i.e. from home) and that won’t involve spending eight hours every day on the phone.
Have a good week, and thank you for your comments and words of encouragement.

I’m trying to learn Scrivener as well. I understand the basics, but I know there is a lot I’m still missing. Good luck! And best wishes in finding a job…the perfect one for you is out there. Happy writing!
Thanks, Kelli. I’m staying positive on the job search. I was getting frustrated with the job boards online, so I got some hints on how to structure my searches, and the results are more promising. With Scrivener, I’m using it like a word processor and learning the advanced features as they become useful. Thanks for stopping by!
Hello, John. I agree with Chris that you have much grist for writing. Have you considered starting a separate blog just for article ideas? You might check out the Ultimate Blog Challenge, a daily writing challenge. Your entries could be short, but you’ll post a link on Facebook. Readers then comment, giving you a sense of a wider audience. I wish you the best on your writing, your job search — and with Scrivener.
I don’t write in this blog enough to even think about starting another 😉 I might expand posting on this blog and see how it goes. Thanks for telling me about the Ultimate Blog Challenge; I know a couple of people that have done it, and I’m always up for a challenge. Thanks for stopping by!
All that you have been through should give you plenty of ideas for articles. Even if it is only a “day in the life”, how you meet every day challenges would be helpful and appreciated by many who would read these articles.
I hadn’t considered that. Thanks!
