Ready. Set. Write! Update
It's time for Ready.Set.Write! For those of you who don't know what this is, it's 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 actually get some writing done. We cheer each other on, strive for goals and write whatever we can while eating ice cream, swimming, basking in the sun and simply enjoying summer however it may be.
How did I do on last week's goals?
Write 750 words - ....Do you hear that? That loud, horrific sound as if an airplane smashed into a mountain at full speed? Crash. Burn. Bang. Yep, that sums it up. I did absolutely nothing. *sigh*
Next week's goals?
Well, since the kids do start school Thursday, I'm going to go all out this time and say 1000 words!
Yeah, I'm still keeping it realistic.
A favorite line/phase that sums up my story or writing or revising. . .
OOooo (that's me revving up that singing voice)...those words are like a candle in the wind.... flickering like they want to exist but me not getting the chance to sit down and make them into reality.
The biggest challenge I faced. . .
Kids determined to live it up as best they can before heading off to school... and now, that they found out the school days are going to be 30 minutes longer this year, they're on a massive mission of last minute fun. World watch out these last three days!
Something I love about my MS. . .
Despite my inability to sit down and write, the characters and plot are whispering to me from the corners of my mind. They want to be written. They really do.
And what about you? How did your writing week go?
