I was invited to participate in Ready. Set. Write! by my CP and best friend Mandie, which makes sense since we’ve already been checking in with each other on our WIP goals. It’s been so helpful have some accountability and encouragement, and that’s what Ready. Set. Write! is all about–writers encouraging one another this summer to meet their goals. This year, it’s hosted by Katy Upperman, Jamie Morrow, Alison Miller, and Erin Funk. Check out their blogs for more information and be sure to link up each week.
How I did on last week’s goals:
I finished my edits for my WIP and sent them off to my agent! I was relieved to finish them because I now have a wicked case of carpal tunnel syndrome and need some time to rest it (in writing’s defense, it’s also due to holding the baby for nursing and my iPhone 😉
I finished one book—Something Strange and Deadly and am still reading several more at one time.
I did email my publicist, but I still have a few things I need to do for her, so I’ll continue that goal for this week.
Goals for this week:
Rest my wrist!!
Read at least one book.
Read over CP’s revised chapters–can’t wait to dig into this!
Work on any other edits my agent might need me to do.
Send off the last few items on the check-list that my publicist needs.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
I was able to focus better this week, but then my wrist was hurting so I was desperate to finish everything. Ready for a mental and physical break! 🙂
Oh, but I also have a fun story for you about last week. So my dog (pictured at right with the insanity in her eyes) is an escape artist and regularly leaves our fenced-in back yard. It’s annoying, but not usually a problem. Last week, though, she got under the crawl space, encountered a SKUNK, pissed the skunk off, made it spray her, and the AC unit pumped the smell into our house through the vents. Our whole house reeked of skunk–so bad we had to go stay with my parents. I still smell it. Although, it’s much, much better now. Thanks, Sakura.
So that was my week…
Thanks for all the encouraging comments! I hope everyone has a productive week! 🙂
