Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at with our writing projects—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing. This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, Elodie Nowodazkij, and Katy Upperman. All the details are HERE.
1. How I did on last week’s goals:
- Continue to investigate cover design options for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS. Check! Investigation continues this week.
- Finish my re-read of MOSAIC and start to figure out what overall changes I’ll need to make. Check! I finished the re-read but am realizing that I’ll need to re-read the partially finished books 2 and 3 in the series to really figure out all the changes.
- Revisit SAVE THE CAT by Blake Snyder and put together a beat sheet for MOSAIC. Check! By the skin of my teeth. 🙂 I just finished the beat sheet last night!
- Visit the blogs of at least 10 other RSWers. I didn’t make this. Last Monday was booked from start to finish. It’s hard to be motivated to visit the RSW blogs on Tuesday when you know you are a whole day behind everyone else. 😦
- Walk at least 10k each day. Very close! There were only two days I didn’t quite make it to 10k.
2. My goals for this week.
- Continue to investigate cover design options for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS.
- Finish my re-read of the partially finished manuscripts for books 2 and 3 of MOSAIC and start putting together an overall plan for complete outline and changes.
- Visit the blogs of at least 10 other RSWers.
- Walk at least 10k each day.
3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised: Since I didn’t really do much actual writing this week – mostly re-reading and outlining – I’ll just sum it up by saying: “happy.” I’m happy to find that I still love this MS, it’s characters and overall plot. Lots of work ahead, though!
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write): Distractions and being able to fall into a good routine. Oh, and on Saturday my computer was giving me attitude and I lost hours that could’ve been productive! Grrrrr.
5. Something I love about my WiP: I like the action that happens in this story. My MC is a woman of action and she jumps in to help out at a moment’s notice.
How did your week of writing and/or revising go?
