Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at in our writing—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing. This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, and Katy Upperman. If you’ve yet to officially join, there’s still time! Find the details HERE.
My goals for this intensive summer writing plan are here.
So how did I do?
How I did on last week’s goals
As I think I have mentioned, I am currently a part of the Magic Spreadsheet. The Magic Spreadsheet is a simple online tool to help you build a habit of writing at least 250 words a day. And so getting in my word count is easy. I am totally motivated.
My goals for this week
I am working on the website for my book cover designs but am not happy with it. My goal is to get it sorted out this week in addition to my writing. I also want to finish Bite Club by Rachel Caine.((update, I did finish this book over the weekend and now am on to The Memory of Water by Karen White)) and get on the treadmill for ten minutes at least four days a week.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
FUN! I am writing a story ripped from my memoir and fictionalized and so far it is going great. You can write a story from your own life-base quite fast, I say!
The biggest challenge I faced this week
Finding time. I went to a book signing Tuesday night with writer friends and didn’t get home til late, had a night of critique and that was a really late night, and found myself doing catch-up on my goals late in the week. I am on track, not behind, but still I felt a little rushed.
Something I love about my WIP
As I said, it is a story taken from my own life. I know these characters intimately. It is a breeze to write.
