"Rebecca" by Daphne DuMaurier

“Rebecca” by Daphne DuMaurier

I truly feel that I have failed my “duties” to Magic Pens for this is the first time I have failed to meet a set goal. I did not post my non-fiction piece, but I did however write it. Look out for Never Listen to a Daredevil – A True Story later this week, (hopefully today.)

Well when it comes to the word count, this week from February 25 to March 3, I have written 6,017 words on Magic Pens and have read 73 pages of Rebecca written by Daphne DuMaurier.

This week for some reason, I have not been in a good writing mood. I was determined to post Snowfiss’s story and once I did, it sat there without comments for a very long time. This did not help my encouragement along with the fact that I had to post something that was non-fiction. Whenever I felt like writing and came on Magic Pens, I suddenly remembered I had to write non-fiction before anything else, and this took me away from what I really wanted to write, thus I left without writing anything. This severely upsets me and I do not like this new goal, but since I have started a non-fiction piece, this week will be no problem, I hope. It bugs me that I have already written about the most traumatic thing that has happened to me, The Fear for a Friend – A True Story, along with a few other non-fiction posts when we did not have a goal, and am out of ideas now when we do have this goal. As some of you may have noticed, I do not write well when I am told what to write about. After I get this non-fiction piece posted, I hope that I will want to write this week and post some things. Wish me luck!
