Good morning, Monday! Time for another update for Ready.Set.Write! This is a super summer writing intensive sponsored by Alison, Katy, Erin, Elodie and Jamie, which helps us writers not to fall into a complete summer laziness. Plus, it's a ton of fun.
Did I meet last week's goals???
- outline WiP - halfway
- rework first 2 chapters that were already written-ish - didn't even glance at them
- finish my garden table and chair refurbishing project so I can use them (has nothing to do with writing? Sure it does when I want to sit with my pencil and pad in the sun) - halfway
But I don't see myself as a failure. My betas got my MS back to me at super, lightning speed, and since I'm kind of on a tight schedule with that one, I hit the revisions right away and am sending the MS to my 2nd round of betas today. So I consider my goals met but altered.
My goals for this week?
Note: If my next betas are as fast as the last, those revisions will make any other goals void because I need to get this one in my agent's hands soon.
- finish WIP outline
- rework several chapters
- finish that garden furniture
A favorite line from my story or a phrase/word which sums up what I wrote:
More brainstorming. . .more explanation
The biggest challenge I faced:
Time. Surprise visitors and a finger infection which required out-patient surgery for my daughter ate up tons of time this past week.
Something I love about my MS:
That my kids convinced me to rewrite this once shelved manuscript. I wrote it a few years ago, but it was a mess. Still, my kids never forgot the characters and have insisted I dig it out and redo it. So this is a work of love for them.
How was your writing week?
