How I did on last week's goal: I wanted to get 3,500 words and I did 7,000! This may or may not have caused me to scare the cat with my awesome dance moves.
My goal for this week: I am going for 5,000 words this week.
A favorite line from my story OR a word or word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
After confessing to being a serial early chapters polisher last week I ended up THROWING MY SHINING BEAUTIES AWAY because I realized I was starting at the wrong point in the story, which is why all the polishing in the world wouldn't make those chapters work.
Yup, I pulled a Michael Finnegan.
The biggest challenge I faced this week: The siren song of Stars Hollow. The only way I can get any writing done is to eschew (I have no idea how to actually pronounce that word. Does it just sound like a sneeze?) TV.
Sadly, all I wanted to do this week was curl up and binge on Gilmore Girls until my speaking words-per-minute rate tripled due to overexposure to Lorelai.
But I didn't. Because I really want to finish this book. And then I really want to finish the next one. Because I really, really, really want this writing thing to work, and the only way that will happen is if I keep my butt in the chair and my hands on the keyboard.
(Sadly, overexposure to Lorelai CANNOT triple your typing words-per-minute rate. Life is so unfair sometimes :))
Something I love about my WIP: I love that I want it so badly.
How was your week?
