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.
Last Weeks Goals:
1. Screenplay – 15 pages
~ Done! I am 43 pages into this SCREENPLAY and it is right where I want it to be plot wise. So exciting. Also, remembering how hard writing screenplays are. You have to come at the story in a very different way than writing a novel.
2. Beta Reading – ONE MS
~Ugh. I read about 50 pages on an MS and 20 pages on another. Do not take this as me not enjoying the reading, I AM!! It is just slow going right now.
A favorite line from my story or one word or phrase that sums up what I wrote or revised:
Simon and Alexa emerge. Alexa has her iPad out and is
Did you grab the waters?
He faces her as he shuts the door.
(Turns camera to self)
Turns camera to Simon.
Granola bars and other sustenance?
(Camera to self)
Loaded up like a hobbit on her way
Not having a lot of down time to read. Exhaustion.
Something I love about my WiP:
Sometimes you have an idea for a story and you start writing it and it just doesn’t work like you expected it to. This Screenplay is working better than I anticipated. So. Excited.
This weeks goals:
1. Write 15 Screenplay pages.
2. Read 100 more beta pages.
3. Continue having an Epic Summer with Sam. (This is one goal I have had no problem achieving so far!)
