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 Darkness Brutal (review here), still need to post my review for Saint Anything
Write: 6,802 words (almost 2k more than I'd hoped!) Thank GOD for peer pressure.
Move: Four days of cardio+strength!
My goal(s) for this week:
Read: I haven't decided what I'm in the mood for this week. So first goal is to pick a new book!
Write: 4,750 words added to my WIP
Move: Exercise 4 days.
A favorite line from my story:
He flexed his fingers, strong and sturdy but already changing. The shadow’s claws showed through where the man’s fingernails had once been, the whites of his eyes completely swallowed by the darkness. Even his once-blond hair had turned black.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
I'm in the middle of writing the climax, and I always take FOREVER to write those scenes.
Something I love about my WIP:
Third person omniscient.
