Ready. Set. Write! Week 12

Ready. Set. Write! is a weekly blog check in so writers can cheer each other on and support each other. Check out one of the lovely host bloggers (Erin FunkJaime MorrowKaty UppermanAlison Miller, and Elodie Nowodazkij) for more details :)

How I did on last week's goal: I skipped last week because my children passed on their preschool plague and I was sick for almost two weeks. So sorry I did not get around to comment the week before! We all ended up on antibiotics with various complications. Such fun :)

My goal for this week: 2,000 words. Not go to the doctor's office (they are starting to think I am a stalker).

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

Stalled due to sickness. 

The biggest challenge I faced this week: Being stuck in the house with two sick toddlers. It was no joke, my friends. I had fever dreams about reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? over and over and over again.

Something I love about my WIP: I love that I am ready to get back into it. I couldn't write for the last couple of weeks, but I did think about it a lot, which was fun. 

How was your week?


  1. Two weeks is a long time to be sick. Here's hoping that none of you relapse and good luck this week!

  2. Lol! My daughter has that Brown Bear problem too. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. Here's wishing you a much healthier week!

  3. Hope you feel better! Good luck with the writing this week. :)

  4. I am so sorry you were sick, but SO glad you are on the mend! Hope you can have a productive and sick free week!

  5. Oh wow, plague indeed. Fever dreams are no joke. I hope you're getting your strength back.

  6. Hope you're feeling better now. Getting sick is nothing we can plan for and just have to rest and ride out.

  7. Oh man. Ugh. Sorry you were sick, with sick kiddos to boot. Hope you all get better ASAP! Good luck getting back to your writing! :)

  8. Oh dear! Sounds like you and your family have had a rough go of it lately. Hope you're all feeling much better and that you can build up some writing momentum again soon!

  9. Aw, I hope your and your family are feeling better soon! Fever dreams are bad enough, worse when they make you unlikely to be able to bear (no pun intended!) seeing the subject of them again.

    Good luck this week, I hope it's an escape from being ill and the words are poised and waiting for you. :)
