Day 22 7/22
Last week didn't end as I had planned it. I wrote a ton last Tuesday but then sizzled out throughout the week. I'm only up to about 31,000 words. It was a major let down. I've noticed a pattern with myself though. I tend to write in big increments. I don't like writing towards the end of the week. Once I start, I hate being interrupted.
So what do these patterns mean?
Writing a lot in one sitting. This is both a good and a bad trait. One reason it's been bad for me is that if I don't have a couple hours, I won't bother trying to write a little. I know that once I get on a tangent or in my groove, little can stop me. My mind travels with it's thoughts and when I stop to take a break it breaks up the writing. It's good because my thoughts are together. Therefore my writing is cohesive and follows a line.
Beginning of the week writer. I haven't really found any evidence to why this happens to me but I can kind of figure it out in my head. I think in the beginning of the week I have so many good ideas and it's a new week so I want to start it off strong. As the week goes on, I get tired and bored and think I've done enough for the week. It's a lazy mans thought process but hey, it's me.
Interruptions. I'm super weird about interruptions. I don't mind some things but then other things really tick me off. For example, when I'm writing I don't mind having the tv on in the background. So I can write while my boyfriend watches tv. I hate when music is playing in the background. I hate when some people are around. This morning, I was writing in my living room and my grandma was in the kitchen making food, using a blender, opening doors etc. It was so annoying that I had to stop writing and wait for her to leave. Somethings really bother me!
What patterns have you noticed when you write?

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
