I am really excited to be starting Ready. Set. Write! this week. It's a summer (winter for me) writing intensive for writing/planning/revising and is hosted by Erin Funk, Jaime Morrow, Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, and Elodie Nowodazkij. Everyone sets some goals and then updates with a brief post on Mondays so we can cheer each other on and hold each other accountable.
Fun, right? Check out one of the host blogs for cool buttons and further instructions!
How I did on last week's goal: My goal was to write 500 words a day for five days last week and I did it, which is excellent because I really just need to get back in the habit of making myself sit down and get the words out.
My goal for this week: I just want to keep rolling with the 500 words/five days formula for now.
A favorite line from my story OR a word or word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised: If this WIP was a student its report card would say this: X lacks focus but has potential.
The biggest challenge I faced this week: The same challenge I face every night, Pinky - TRYING TO STAY OFF THE INTERNET.
Something I love about my WIP: I've written MG in the past but I'm playing around with something aimed at an older crowd, so it's fun to let my characters swear. I have toddlers and can't swear in real life anymore so I'm meeting my profanity needs on the page :)
How was your week?
