Jul / 21
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 was able to get those first 3 chapters sent off to my agent, but that was what took up so much of my writing time this week–going back and forth with her until they were exactly the way we wanted them.
I did come up with a title, and I’m relatively happy with it, but we’ll see if it ends up being temporary or not–you never know with titles!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to finish reading or start work on the edits for my other WIP, but I plan to do that this week.
Goals for this week:
Start work on the edits for my other WIP–working chapter by chapter
Finish reading The Burning Sky
And a non-writing-related goal: finish the thank you notes for my little boy’s birthday party (it’s been a month now)!! The guilt is killing me!
A line from my Top Secret WIP:
It was as though my heart was made of glass, and it shattered the moment I saw her.
The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Baby Jude is usually an easy-going little guy, but at 4 months old now he’s hitting that phase where he’s more aware of his world, so it’s becoming more and more difficult for him to take a nap. This seemed to even out yesterday, so there’s hope that’ll be better this week! Babies’ sleep schedules are funny things–as soon as you get used to one, they immediately change it up on you.
Thanks for all the encouraging comments! I hope everyone has a productive week! 🙂
