Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive--hosted by Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, and Erin Funk--that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at in our writing—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing.
1. How I did on last week’s goals
Success! All goals accomplished—stretch goals included. Managed to knock out chapter one on Wednesday morning and some in the car on the way to the beach Wednesday afternoon. Wrote chapter two on Friday evening when we were taking a sun break. Outlined the next scene on Saturday at the pool!
2. My goals for this week
I would like to outline and write five scenes this week. I used to do word count goals, but I’m trying something new to see if I have better success!
3. A favorite line from my story
She was death itself, come to claim me, to pull me from this world and never let me return, to rip away my peace my hope my chance to say goodbye.
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week
My final stretch goal: outlining the first scene of the third chapter. I’m trying to be a little more of a planner this time around. It’s hard for me, but I think it’s actually making my writing better.
5. Something I love about my WIP
Ghosts, friendships, and snarky remarks.
