Oh my! It's Monday again and time for another update for 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 a complete summer laziness. Plus, it's a ton of fun.
Did I meet last week's goals?
- finish WIP outline - Sort of. I was working on it and realized that with the basic frame already set, I want to wing the rest of the details. So we'll call the basic skeleton quits for now.
- rework several chapters - reworked the first and am rewriting from there, since the story is going to be a little different than first planned.
- finish that garden furniture - it's painted. And I started sewing the cloth part, but my sewing machine broke!!! Until I get the spare part, it's done with that goal. So I painted fence posts and did weeding instead. Grrr.
Goals for this next week. . .
If beta notes come back, the completion of changes and sending that MS out the door is this week's goal. If not. . .
- write second chapter, maybe a third on my WiP.
A favorite line from my story or a phrase/word which sums up what I wrote. . .
In a flawless wave of motion, I stuffed the burger into the bag, glided by the heat lamps for a lovely French fry toss and snatched up the waiting cola inclusive straw and lid. If packing an order could be scored, this one earned a perfect ten.
The biggest challenge I faced. . .
Getting my mind into tweeny Princess mode and out of scifi clones. Disney is my netflix friend right now. (And Daredevil, but that isn't very princessy....or?)
Something I love about my MS. . .
It's tweeny, carefree and sweet fairy taley, while hitting a real historical twist that's been long forgotten by most. So there is some fun research involved - yippee!
What about you? How's your summer writing moving along?
