Ready. Set. WRITE! is an online writing intensive to help stay accountable with your writing goals over the summer and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on whether planning, drafting, or revising! Your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, and Katy Upperman. Find the rest of the details HERE.
It’s Monday again, which means it’s check-in time.
Last Weeks Goals:
1. Write 15 screenplay pages. That sounds ambitious, but I plan to spend most of my writing time this week on screenplays.
~ I wrote 10 screenplay pages, and I am REALLY happy with them. Yay!
2. Finish those three new revision points on my manuscript.
~ Finished the revision points on my manuscript and started reading through it. SO, THAT IS EXTRA!
3. Adjust to my son’s new schedule.
4. Finish the beta reading I have lingering on my computer AT ALL COSTS.
~ I forgot that Ruin and Rising came out last week. So, uh, that took up all my reading time. I cannot feel bad, because THAT BOOK! And my CP Susan was threatening my life if I didn’t read it so we could talk about it. I did finish one manuscript, which I throughly enjoyed, so I halfway met my goal.
A favorite line from my story or one word or phrase that sums up what I wrote or revised:
“The heart is deceptive.”
“The heart houses the power to do great and mighty exploits,” she says, tying a piece of thin leather around the end of my braid. “The mind is a faulty device.”
Anxiety and time.
Something I love about my WiP:
Even with the grim circumstances my main characters face, the story still comes off dreamy and lush and I think that has a lot to do with the setting.
This weeks goals:
1. Finish the read through of my manuscript.
2. BETA READING!
3. Ten screenplay pages.
4. One blog post.
