My goals for the summer:
- WRITE ALL THE WORDS!
Finish my current WIP, which is Beauty and the Beast meets Edgar Allen Poe. Set in 1800's Savannah, Ga.
- READ ALL THE WORDS! I currently have several books on hold at the library as e-books. Should I get to the top of the list for all of them this summer, I'd like to finish them. These include Code Name Verity, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, Between Shades of Gray, The Wrath and the Dawn, Things We Know By Heart, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender, and Saint Anything.
- DO ALL THE MOVES!
Now that I'm in a much less stressful work environment, I'm finally making time for me again. By the end of the summer I'd like to be up to 4 days of working out each week!
How I did on last week’s goals:
Read: I finished both The Wrath and the Dawn and The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
Write: I met last week’s goal on day one, so bumped up to 5,000. Despite some unexpected life happenings, I managed to meet this goal at 5,161 words plus added chapter titles.
Move: I only managed two days of exercise due to unplanned traveling from Thursday - Sunday
My goal(s) for this week:
Read: I’ve got Saint Anything on the list this week!
Write: I’m going to start with 3,000 and see how far I get
Move: Same--4 days.
A favorite line from my story:
Father glanced over the parishioners and shook his head sadly. “Death comes for us all eventually.”
Norabel wondered if someday it would return for her, and if this time she’d be strong enough to face it.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Grief. My grandmother passed away on Tuesday night. Wednesday was a blur preparing to fly out to be with my dad. I was able to read on the plane but couldn’t get any words out. The flight back was still hard, but I managed to write.
Something I love about my WIP:
The darkness. I really like the darkness.
