Weekend's over. . .so sad, but that also mean it's time for another update of 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 complete summer laziness. And this summer seems to really be tough on the writing end.
How did I do on last week's goals?
- write second chapter, maybe a third on my WiP. - Nope, not done. My beta got back to me (yay!) and it's been a writing frenzy on those edits! I'm almost done and this thing will be out the door tonight. . .or tomorrow morning. So yep, count those goals met!
Goals for this next week?
With my manuscript off to agent hands (and crossing my fingers she'll like it), I'm finally going to attack my Fast Food Princess WiP head on!
- Write two chapters
A favorite line from my story or phrase/word that sums up what I wrote/revised. . .
More emotion, smoothing things out. . .Lol! Rewrites never end. That's one thing I've learned.
The biggest challenge I faced. . .
The same as always - time! This week I spent 4 days on the road, driving here and there and everywhere. A small part of me is actually not sad that school starts again in a few weeks.
Something I love about my MS. . .
My characters have grown on me. After several comments from readers and lots of contemplation, I decided to take something away from one of my bigger characters, a toy of hers. And part of me felt sorry for her. I know she's pouting that I did it, but I had to for moral compass sake.
I wish I could give her a lollipop instead.
And what about you? How did your writing go?
