It's time for my Ready.Set.Write! update. 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 500 words. Done!
Next week's goals?
Let's up the writing and shoot for 750 words! (Lol! Yeah, I'm staying realistic)
A favorite line/phrase from my story or a word/phrase which sums up my writing. . .
“$329 for the dress! You’ve got to be kidding me.” The paycheck, which had carried the weight of a golden nugget in my jeans before, mutated back into flimsy paper.
Nina scowled. “You’re sliding into Grinch mode.”
The biggest challenge I faced. . .
None really. I know I'm not going to get anything on the writing front done until the kids hit school, and I've accepted that. Actually, this non-stress attitude has helped my muse send some wonderful character ideas my way.
Something I love about my MS. . .
The light-heartedness. I've got some characters with pretty out-there attitudes. . .and they come from the wildest directions. It's turning out to be a ton of fun to write.
How about you? Get some writing or revising done this last week?
