Thursdays are Fiction Days!

Today is the first Thursday of my new work/writing schedule, so it's the first Fiction Day!

Hubby and I had some great conversations on our vacation recently, and one of the things he mentioned was that he doesn't want me to abandon my coffee house book.  I've been busy in my office lately, so I haven't had much time to write fiction.  So Hubby suggested I take one day a week to devote to fiction-writing (minimum, of course), and for that evening, he'll do his own thing.

So now that I've finished my other work for the day, I'm looking at what I need to do to get my coffee house book back on track.  I have a few organizational things to do, but for the most part, I'm ready to pick up the writing.

Doing Screnzy this year helped me a lot, I think.  Not only was I able to brush up on my dialogue, but the whole process gave me a new idea for the coffee house book that, I think, will be a more cohesive story arc, and will do more in revealing the characters and relationships.  It's making me even more excited about writing it!

Maybe I'll get this book finished after all!

I challenge you to set aside time every Thursday for fiction, as well!

  1. Set aside more time for fiction? I'm just giving you a hard time. Fiction is all I'm doing, but you know that already. The hard part is writing two books at one time while editing a third. I'm happy you're still keeping up with the fiction too Nikki!
