How I did on last week’s goals:
Mostly accomplished! I plotted and researched for my WIP, helped the kids with reading, and exercised 4 days instead of 3. The only thing I didn’t complete is to read another book, but that’s because I’m reading GONE WITH THE WIND, which I somehow have never read–only seen the movie a bunch of times, of course–and it’s SUPER LONG (but I’m enjoying it–as cringe-worthy as some of the language and scenes are).
My goal(s) for this week:
1. Continue working/plotting my WIP
2. Read another book
3. Help the kids with reading
4. Exercise at least 3 days
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revise:
These are a few lines from when the MC is trying to come up with some explanation for her rescuer as to why she’s on his plantation…in the year 1862 instead of 2015.
My house burned down and everyone is dead! No, that won’t work—what if he wants to see the house?
I’m just passing through on my way to visit family in Virginia. Right, and I just happen to be traveling alone, on foot.
I was led by a ghost into a secret tunnel and ended up in the year 1862. Sweet baby Jesus.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
The problem everyone faces, and most definitely everyone who has 3 children: finding time!
Something I love about my WiP:
I’m in the honeymoon phase with it at the moment–so everything! (This will change as soon as I start working on it heavily–and then I’ll hate it and think it’s horrible before swinging back to loving it again 😉
