#RSW- week 9

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
After the sucky week I had last week, I was determined to turn it around and get back on track. Which I did. I did so well in fact that the Magic Spreadsheet says I have to LEVEL UP again! Now my word count goal will be 350 words a day. Whew. I hope I can keep at it.So that is my goal for #RSW too, make that 350 a day!

Because of my day job, I didn’t get to go swimming but only over the weekend. That’s okay, I get enough sun in one day to last all week! But I do want to exercise more. I am failing on that big time.

Have sort of given up on the book covers for now. I am not sure I am good enough to advertise my wares. I think I will just hold off and work a little longer.

I have finally FINISHED Call of the Herald. No spoilers here, but it was not my fav book. It started out pretty well, but sort of died toward the middle. I worked through it but won’t be reading any more of that series. 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 WEEK (total utter SQUEEE!!!!!) so it is waiting in the wings. My reading goals are above expectations.

My goals for this week
Keep writing, keep exercising, keep reading- which I will not be able to do much of any of this as I will be getting ready to go on vacation. But I do hope to get all of this and more done while out of town. I will probably not do a RSW update on Monday August 11 and maybe not on the 18th as I will be out of town with no wifi on the 11th and back but covered up with work on the 18th.

A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised Perseverance. My characters are trying to keep going in face of disaster, and I too am working through all my failures of last week.

The biggest challenge I faced this week
Energy. I am really lackluster and think I just need MORE sleep!

Something I love about my WIP
How strong my characters are. They are battling stuff that can bring down even the toughest person.

How did you do this week with your Ready. Set. WRITE goals?
