Ready. Set. Write!

Happy Monday, and welcome to another week of. . .

Ready. Set. Write!

What is that?

In the words of Jaime Morrow, it’s a summer long writing intensive with the purpose of writing, revising, planning, and keeping each other accountable. We will be sharing our goals on Mondays, keeping our posts BRIEF (2-3 lines per heading) so we can spend more time writing and less time blogging. You can sign up at any of the other host blogs (KatyErinAlisonJaime). And don't forget to hop around to encourage other participants. For more information about RSW and a link to our super fun buttons, go here.

1) How I did on last week's goals.

I wish I could say great. . .but it'd be a big, fat lie. I wanted to get one chapter revised. I didn't open a page. Let's just say the last days before the start of school (and a visitor from Germany) are complicating things.

2) My goal(s) for this week.

Maybe get to that chapter finally? Probably not. But I can dream.

3) A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.

Shari scowled at me. “You’re sliding into Grinch mode.”  

4) The biggest challenge I faced this week.

Oh, that's easy! Time.

5) Something I love about my WIP.

Each character has a distinct personality and a distinct purpose. There's no room for anything half-hearted or mundane. I love that.
