Ready? Set. Write! 2014 Week 2
Author: Mandie Baxter
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?
I kept up with my 1K a day. Until Friday. And then I wrote I don't know how many words but FINISHED MY WIP! The first draft of WHEN THE WIND BLOWS is complete. I forgot how good it feels to type The End.
As for my other goals, I finished one book and am half way through two more. Need to step that up. I also made it to the beach Saturday, so there's a start on going to the beach more often. Query letter...haven't started that. Soon.
2). My goals for this week
Next up is revisions. My CP and a friend are reading over for general flow/plot ok. I'm also going to do a book map of where my book is now so I can make notes of where I want it to go.
3). A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
4). The biggest challenge I faced this week
Reading. I couldn't focus on the books I was reading because I was so close to finishing my own.
5). Something I love about my WIP
Chapter Twenty-Two. I love the tone and the flow and it's how I want to mold the rest of the novel.
