Book-In-A-Week is starting this coming Monday, and I am sitting it out.
I’ve enjoyed BIW the last two months that I’ve participated in it, but it has had an unexpectedly negative consequence on my writing over all. While I write well during the BIW week, I find that I’ve lost the motivation to write any of the rest of time. This bugs me.
So I am skipping BIW this month, and am going to re-focus on the daily writing. I love the challenge aspect of BIW, and the group feel of it, but I also need to be working every day. I am sure there must be a good and effective way to merge BIW with my normal writing patterns, but I haven’t figured it out yet, and I don’t want to lose any more daily time to it.
In other news, I’m also going to be doing NaNoWriMo this year, which I am looking foward to immensely. I’ve got some planning in the works for the November book, and have high hopes for the project over all.
