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: (SPOILER ALERT: NOT GOOD!)
- Continue to investigate cover design options for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS. Nope. This endeavor came to a standstill this week.
- 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. This was about the only thing I did accomplish this week. I finished the re-read on both and barely got started on the planning.
- Visit the blogs of at least 10 other RSWers. Check! Go you amazing writer-folk, go!
- Walk at least 10k each day. Epic fail on this.
2. My goals for this week.
- Continue to investigate cover design options for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS.
- Work on a blurb for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS.
- Work an hour a night/five nights on the overall plan for complete outline and changes for all three MOSAIC books.
- 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: “Sludge.” This week, I feel like I’ve been walking through sludge with this re-read of books 2 and 3. Again, I still like the story and the characters. However, these are manuscripts that I worked on a few years ago and they are really bad. It’s been hard to re-read without jumping in to make changes.
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write): The aforementioned “sludge.”
5. Something I love about my WiP: Aliens!! 🙂
How did your week of writing and/or revising go?
