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'm about halfway through Saint Anything.
Write: I clocked in at 3,500 words for the week, which puts me over 40,000 for this WIP! Halfway if I manage to reach my goal word count on this first draft.
Move: I only did yoga once. The grief hit me harder than I expected it to, so I didn't really get out of the house much. Doing a lot better now so hopefully this week will be better!
My goal(s) for this week:
Read: Finish Saint Anything and start Between Shades of Gray
Write: I want to bump this up to 5k. Go big or go home, right?
Move: Yoga four days. Hot hot hot.
A favorite line from my story:
It was [redacted]'s anger with death, with the spirits she’d so long trusted, that had led her to call upon those she should never have listened to.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Grief again. Also started having dreams other people were dying. So there's that. Ugh. But here's to healing and growing and remembering.
Something I love about my WIP:
This totally unexpected change in plot.
