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: Finished Saint Anything. Downloaded Between Shades of Grey from the library.
Write: I did not at all meet my goal. This was a rough week for me. I only managed 1600 words.
Move: Yoga twice.
My goal(s) for this week:
Read: Finish Between Shades of Gray
Write: I need to average 4,750 words per week for the rest of RSW if I want to meet my goal. So there you have it!
Move: Exercise 4 days.
A favorite line from my story:
“You’re mine, bitch,” [redacted] hissed, his voice all at once one man and many, dark like the night sky and fluid like the rain.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
I'm guessing this is tied to grief and related stress, but I had my first migraine ever this week, complete with an aura and olfactory hallucinations. My post-migraine hangover (is that what you call it?) lasted two days. So I was basically worthless the end of the week. Hence not meeting my goal.
Something I love about my WIP:
I'm still really enjoying this story and am excited to see how it turns out.
