Ready? Set. Write! 2014 Week 6
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?
My CP sent notes on my MS. She's brilliant. Her ideas, while overwhelming, are awesome. It's so nice to have fresh eyes on a project you're so close to. I sorted through them and have a game plan for revision. I've written a whole new chapter and jotted down notes for the rest of the changes. I haven't been focusing on my second WIP for NANO. I think this is my last go at it, camp or regular nano. I'm not good at writing that much, that fast. I was able to read 2 books thought.
2). My goals for this week
Revise, revise, revise!
3). A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
Gramma always said I was made of salt-water and seaweed, a child of the ocean, just like her. When I was little she’d tell me salt water ran through our veins instead of blood. And I’d believe her.
New opening line...not sure I'm sold. We'll see.
4). The biggest challenge I faced this week
Coming up with a plan for what needed to be changed, moved or deleted.
5). Something I love about my WIP
That with a little work it's going to be even better than it was before. Or...so I'm told.
