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. Yes! I made some decisions on this.
- Continue to tweak the blurb for THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS. Yep! I’m still going to let it percolate a little longer.
- Work an hour a night/five nights on the overall plan for complete outline and changes for all three MOSAIC books. Yes! I did some character development exercises this week that were really helpful, too. I got great insight into my villain in book two. Yahoo!
- Visit the blogs of at least 10 other RSWers. Yes! And – at the risk of repeating myself – may I just say that you are all amazing? 🙂
- Walk at least 10k each day. Accomplished five of seven days.
2. My goals for this week.
Just last night I got a critique on THE WITCH OF HIGHLAND FALLS from another fantastic CP. This was from someone who hadn’t seen it since the very early stages and only the first few chapters. Her insight after all other rounds of revisions are going to be invaluable! So, this week’s goals are all about TWoHF!
- Continue to tweak the blurb for TWoHF.
- Work an hour a night/five nights on revisions for TWoHF. (Stretch goal of however much additional time I can wrangle. I’m so excited to dig into these revisions!)
Visit the blogs of at least 10 other RSWers.I’m not going to hold myself to this one this week because it looks to be crazy at the beginning of the week so I don’t know how I’d get around to everyone until, say, Wednesday. Ugh!
- Walk at least 10k each day.
3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised: To sum up: even the bad guys have their reasons! 🙂
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write): Feeling like I wasn’t really moving forward on the MOSAIC books since I mostly worked on a lot of character development and outlining – but no actual writing or revising. But I know that this will be helpful down the road so it was worth it.
5. Something I love about my WiP (MOSAIC): Planet-hopping! (And did I mention the aliens?)
How did your week of writing and/or revising go?
