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 1000 words - Done! But not on the MS I was planning on attacking. I have another half-way completed MS on the shelves, and that one called to me instead. They scream--I listen!
This week's goals. . .
Kids are in school, so things can really get under way now! I'm planning on writing 5000 words and maybe revising a chapter or two on something else. Writing world, watch out because I'm going to hit this hard!
A favorite line/phrase from my MS or sums up my writing/revising. . .whatever. . .
Go deep and add layers.
The biggest challenge I faced. . .
Back to school hits like a tidal wave to our family's daily routine, and it takes a bit for things to settle back into some sort of normal flow. Oh, not that we're there yet. . .but it's only going to get smoother from here.
Something I love about my MS. . .
The MS I pulled out this last week is set in the 1860's. It's so fun to dive into the setting and take a zap back in history.
What about you? Get any writing done this last week?
