Ready. Set. Write!
What is that?
In the words of Jaime Morrow, it’s a summer long writing intensive with the purpose of writing, revising, planning, and keeping each other accountable. We will be sharing our goals on Mondays, keeping our posts BRIEF (2-3 lines per heading) so we can spend more time writing and less time blogging. You can sign up at any of the other host blogs (Katy, Erin, Alison, Jaime) every Monday. And don't forget to hop around to encourage other participants. For more information about RSW and a link to our super fun buttons, go here.
How I did on last week's goals:
I was shooting for 5,000 words and ended up with a meager 1,000 or so. BUT I did receive a surprise beta read of over 300 pages and did get that done and back. So I'm still happy.
My Goal(s) for this week:
*sigh* I'm going to try for a huge 1,000 words, but with me (yes, me) having to tear off our old roof so my brother can come and put on a new one Thursday (seriously, the things we have to do!), it will be hard to get much writing done. Especially, since he's bringing his family of 8 with him. Oh, I'm looking forward to it; don't get me wrong. But it will keep me busy! Recipes anyone?
One Phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
Tidbits here. Tidbits there. Am I getting anywhere?
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
The same one that I'll face this coming week. The same one I faced last week. Maybe I'll just make it my summer's motto. I need more time.
Something I love about my VIP:
The sense of adventure. It's about three kids who try to find a treasure to save a grandma's farm (a contemporary (more or less)). Having them sneak through the woods in search of 'clues' makes me want to go out there and play in the trees and creek too.
And how was your writing week?
