Welcome to WEEK 4 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!***
I did pretty decently, I think. I didn't quite meet my goal of revising for at least an hour five days this week, but I did revise ONLY ANNIE for more than an hour four out of seven days, so I'm happy with that. It was a busy week, so this isn't shabby.
2. MY GOAL(S) FOR THIS WEEK
• Work on ONLY ANNIE for one hour, five days this week.
• If so inspired, continue revising WATCH OF NIGHT.
3. A FAVOURITE LINE FROM MY STORY OR ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED
My MC and the guy she loved and let go are just meeting again after three years. (NB: This is rough/hasn't been revised.)
"It allowed Annie to silently observe this boy who had dominated her thoughts for the past three years. It was striking, really, how much the same he was even while he was so changed. The way he rubbed his ear when he was thinking or nervous, how his eyes nearly disappeared when he really smiled, his unbridled laughter… None of that was altered. In those respects, Went was exactly as Annie remembered.
And that made moving on so much harder."
I was busier than normal with life stuff. Otherwise, the spike in heat made me lethargic.
5. SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WiP ♥
The switch from present to past tense and from first to third person really suits this story, I think.
