Jun / 15
How I did on last week’s goals:
Not bad considering June is the busiest month for me (two birthdays, Father’s Day, and our anniversary–all within days of each other). I finished two books (DUPLICITY by N.K. Traver–yay for agency sisters! and THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER by Sarah Dessen) and met my exercise goals, but I totally slacked off as far as writing–but wait! I have a good excuse! I actually just finished drafting THE ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN after working on it every single day for months, so I needed to take a break or my brain would explode.
My goal(s) for this week:
1. Write another chapter on my WIP
2. Read another book
3. Finish beta reading for a friend
4. Exercise at least 3 days
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revise:
I love the opening line of my new YA set in the South–the MC’s mother is a Confederate-flag-waving die-hard Southerner, and she has a nasty attitude hidden beneath her sweet Southern belle facade.
“Why’d you have to invite those damn Yankees?” Mama asks for the hundredth time. She bats away a lazy fly that’s been slowly moving closer to her face.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Laziness! I need to get back into a daily writing routine.
Something I love about my WiP:
It’s set in the South–I’ve always resisted writing a book set here, but this story just wormed its way into my head and wouldn’t let go.
