Well, as many know, I didn't get a lot of writing done the second-half of 2009. With starting a doctoral program, most of my time was used reading, reading, reading and writing, writing, writing...PAPERS! Toward the end of the semester and into Christmas break, I decided that I could add my creative writing back into my life if I managed my time better. I have done it in the past, and there is no reason why I can't do it now. Thus, Weekend Write was born. What is Weekend Write? Well, I decided that one weekend out of the month, I will devote myself to creative endeavors - whether that's working on a screenplay, writing a novel, or working on articles for my upcoming book on writing, The Write Life for You. Friday and Saturday of the weekend, I will write, and on Sunday, I will do either an audio or video podcast of what I've accomplished. In addition to Weekend Write, I decided that I would incorporate writing during my school week, too. I will carve out 2 hours of writing time on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to work on projects, too. Creative writing is my lifeline; without it, I'm pretty useless in all other facets of my life. Tentatively, here are the weekends I plan to write and podcast if you'd like to get your write on and talk about it. January 29-31 February 26-28 March 19-21 April 23-25 May 28-30 June 25-27 July 23-25 August 27-29 September 24-26 October 29-31 November 26-28 December 17-19 Once my first week of school is through and I have a better sense of project due dates, I will solidify these dates. And I have my first project, too. Back in 2006, I started a novel titled The Loss of Weight, and for whatever reason, I stopped working on it. Over Christmas break, I read the 20,000 words I wrote and realized I really liked the story, so from January to end of March, I will be working on finishing this novel before Script Frenzy in April; I plan to work on a screenplay then. I'm excited. I'm pumped. We'll see what happens. :-)
