Aug / 18
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:
This week was so much more relaxing than last week, and my wrist finally feels much better (carpal tunnel syndrome has eased up a lot!).
I finished The Burning Sky–a book I’d been reading for quite awhile, and I ended up really enjoying it. I’m reading Defiance by CJ Redwine right now and REALLY enjoying it–it’s been hard to put down.
I did get to read my CP’s revised chapters–it was nice to critique/edit someone else’s work for a change! And I just love the story, so it was fun for me.
My agent hasn’t gotten back to me on my WIP, which was good because then I could just relax all week.
Goals for this week:
Work on more marketing stuff for Arcana
Do any edits on my WIP my agent might need
Read at least one book

The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Actually stepping away from email/laptop/etc and taking the time to relax!
Thanks for all the encouraging comments! I hope everyone has a productive week! 🙂
