Welcome to WEEK 3 of Ready. Set. WRITE! We hope you all had a productive week! For those of you who are just joining us and are wondering what RSW is all about, it’s a summer long writing intensive through which we write/revise/plan like crazy, cheer each other on, and hold each other accountable with weekly updates. We will be sharing our goals and giving updates on our progress on Mondays and keeping our posts as brief as possible so we can save our words for our WiPs! Sign up on the linky at one of the host blogs each week, and don't forget to hop around to encourage other RSW participants. [For more info and a link to our stash of buttons, click HERE!]
As part of Ready. Set. WRITE! 2015, Alison, Katy, Erin, Elodie, and I will be giving away writerly care packages throughout the summer. At the end of the summer, to celebrate making it through three months of RSW, we will be rewarding ourselves with what we we're calling “Manicures and Manuscripts.” Stay tuned for more info. We hope you’ll join us for all of the fun!
***We will be tweeting with the hashtag #RSWRITE. Keep an eye out for it!***
Partway through last week, I decided that the YA SF I had been working on wasn't where I wanted to put my focus. I know, I know. Talk about coming off as flaky. I have good reasons for downgrading it as a priority, though. Anyway, I've decided to work on revising a YA retelling that I nearly finished awhile ago. I've decided to see how third person past tense works for this story, and so far I'm liking it! I worked on revisions (for both WiPs) four out of seven days last week, so that's not bad.
2. MY GOAL(S) FOR THIS WEEK
I'm keeping my goals reasonably simple for this week:
• Work on ONLY ANNIE for one hour, five days this week.
• If so inspired, continue revising WATCH OF NIGHT.
Stretch Goal → Brainstorm ways to make ES< better.
3. A FAVOURITE LINE FROM MY STORY OR ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED
To sum up: The all-consuming ache of regret.
4. THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED THIS WEEK
Switching WiPs. Some IRL things that cropped up.
5. SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WiP
This WiP is basically straight-up YA romance, which I love. ♥
HOW I DID:
Monday --» Worked on revising ONLY ANNIE for about 2 hours. (1.5 chapters revised)
Tuesday --» Worked on revising ONLY ANNIE for about 1 hours. (1.5 chapters revised)
