Ready. Set. WRITE!
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
My writing has gone on just as before…the WIP is moving into territory that I never expected however. I have never EVER written out of sequence, and this time I am. I have found that some of what I wrote earlier in the book now needs to be moved to the latter half and what I am writing now needs to go earlier. It’s the weirdest feeling!
Because of cool and wet conditions, I have not been able to keep my commitment to swimming or exercising outdoors and that is a total utter #fail. I can only hope for this week to improve that.
I have not made a book cover in weeks, and for that I am a little sorry, but I have not published the website yet, and may not ever. If not, then it won’t matter so much.
I am reading again on Call of the Herald and am determined to finish this book. I am also now reading Grave Peril by Jim Butcher and Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax. I will be reading the most recent Karen White book while on vacation next month so it is waiting in the wings. My reading goals are above expectations.
My goals for this week
Keep writing, keep exercising, keep reading
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised One word would be — strive —I am striving to make it better, make it matter.
The biggest challenge I faced this week
Motivation. I wanted nothing more than to just lie down on the couch and watch mindless tv. Reading became a chore, writing a bigger one and I wasn’t even thinking about exercise. I am glad I pushed through though.
Something I love about my WIP
My characters keep surprising me with interesting facts about themselves. I got to delve into jealousy this week. Good stuff.
