Ready? Set. Write! 2014 Week 3
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'm half way through notes on When The Wind Blows from my main critique partner (Jessica) and half way done making my book map for it. Once those are done I'll see what I need to add and where. I've already planned two chapters that need to be added in. Query is sitll a no go because I hate them.
I also finished reading two books AND took kiddo to the beach today.
2). My goals for this week
Finish Jessica's notes, finish book map, send MS to other CP (Joy) to get her initial thoughts/reactions. Start new project (What If I Was Nothing) for Camp Nano on Tuesday. I've set a goal of 500 words a day for that. Think about a query letter. Or maybe actually doing one.
3). A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
"You're pretty amazing when you don't try to be perfect." Kind of forgot I wrote that until Jessica pointed it out as a favorite line of hers.
4). The biggest challenge I faced this week
No motivation in the beginning of the week and lack of time when the weekend came around. Don't need that to happen again.
5). Something I love about my WIP
All of the ideas that are jumping out at me today to add in as I sat on the beach or read over the notes from Jessica.
