Ready? Set. Write! 2014 Week 1


Ready? Set. Write! is a way for writers to keep in touch with each other and keep themselves accountable to the goals they set. This year it's hosted by Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Jamie Morrow and Erin Funk. Check out their blogs for more details and be sure to link up each week.

1). How I did on last weeks goals?

Wrote 7K this week (didn't write Saturday but doubled up Sunday). I didn't read 1-2 books this week...I read 4! I know, crazy. No beach trip yet we did go to the river today. It's not as pretty as the beach, but it is a body of water. And it did give me ideas for a future WIP.

2). My goals for this week

Same as last. Write at least 1K a day, read 1-2 books this week and make a beach trip. Weather permitting kiddo and I are going Saturday morning.

3). A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised



"It’s not the storm you worry about. It’s not when the wind blows that you should be scared. It’s after. And the destruction it leaves behind."


4). The biggest challenge I faced this week

The weekend, mainly Saturday and Sunday morning. I had to cram in all my words Sunday night. But I got it done!

5). Something I love about my WIP

Baby sea turtles. I mean...who doesn't love baby sea turtles?
