Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 38 + #writemotivation

#writemotivationThe September #writemotivation goal check month has zipped by faster than I ever imagined.  So how did I do on my goals? Well, it wasn’t a complete disaster this time:  

1. Revise at least three pages a day in my WIP.
OK, so this one was a complete disaster. Another month with no progress on my WIP.  I’d be depressed if it weren’t so funny. I really want to participate in NaNoWriMo this year, but I feel like I shouldn’t unless I finish these revisions, so I’m really going to push myself to finish this month. Yeah, I know I say that every month, but one of these months I have to be right, right? Isn’t that the law of averages or something?
 
2. Post two blog posts a week.
DONE! I feel really good about this one. I was a total slacker for most of the summer with only posting once a week (my 15 Minute Tweet Tale roundup on Tuesdays), so I’m going to try to keep up with posting twice a week.
 
3. Spruce up at least one of my short stories and submit it for publication.
DONE! I’m really happy with the changes I made to the story, although I now have to wait six months before I hear back. *bites fingernails to nubs*  But this was a great exercise, and I hope to keep up the momentum by dusting off more of my short stories and getting them into circulation.
 
4. Finish reviewing critique partner’s novel.
DONE! Novel reviewed and notes organized into coherent feedback and sent off to critique partner.
 
So even though I didn’t make any progress on the BIGGIE goal, I was more productive than I have been in a while. Plus I accomplished a lot with both of my short films, and I’ve been working on putting together an optimal writing space to hopefully fan the flames of productivity.  I hope all the other #writemotivation folks made solid progress on your goals!
 
And now here are the 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the past week:
 
9/26 - "Son, if you show a modicum of courage, the bullies will leave you alone," Tom said mockingly to his dad through his split lip.
 
9/27 - Her grandson says it's the new fourth estate, so she tries that tweeter thing. The streaming nonsense makes her wish Death would hurry.
 
9/28 - The king gave a rousing speech, but the salient point was most of them would fall. The pawns refused to take their place on the board.
 
9/29 - I started to sit. Noticed my brother's espiègle grin. Changed seats. Grandma triggered the whoopee cushion. Mercy! Ambulance required.
 

15 Minute Tweet Tales

9/30 - Her symptoms ran the gamut from aches to zero energy. She said she was dying. Her doctor said she was a hypochondriac. She was right.
 
10/1 - She thinks the reticulate pattern in her hose makes a bold fashion statement. Too bold, since her blind date mistakes her for a pro.
 
10/2 - Sue, the 3x spelling champ, heads to the mic with aplomb. The judge says CHARLATAN. Thinking they uncovered her scheme, she confesses.
 
How did you do with your #writemotivation goals? Play along and write tweet tales for the above words. If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them below in the comments because I’d love to read them. Any thoughts about this week's tweet tales?

Congrats of getting most of your To-do list done! I LOVED the twitter stories, even though I'm not a twitter fan. I think they're awesome! :-)

Good luck on goal 1. You can do it.

I'm glad I stopped by for the sentences.
