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. Revise three chapters
Done, plus I had two write NEW chapters.
2. Rewrite the scenes in my screenplay and add three more.
Done! and I added probably six more with plans for more and inspiration for more. I have 60 pages on the Screenplay, and I loved it so hard.
3. Read 100 pages on a manuscript I’m beta reading.
*hides* 50 pages, so halfway.
A favorite line from my story or one word or phrase that sums up what I wrote or revised:
“I have been patient with you, Aiken,” his voice comes from the darkness. I see the sweep of his pa’u in a thin streak of light. “With your ambitions to join the guard, your lack of interest in what I am about…,”I cannot see his face, only the outline of his shoulder and arm, but he pauses and his whole body stills.
“I have done whatever you asked of me,” I say. We both know that is a lie.
His fist flies out, a moving shadow I cannot dodge. With a crack, his knuckles dig into my ribs and smack the air from my lungs.
As summer draws to an end, and I prepare to send Sam to school, I also seem to be falling back into the habit of thinking about writing all the time. This is a challenge because for the next couple weeks, I really won’t have much extra time. So, being inspired is actually a bad thing right now.
Something I love about my WiP:
Screenplay: The characters feel like real people, and I feel like I am doing them justice.
This Weeks Goals:
1. Revise three more chapters.
2. Write three more scenes on the screenplay and fill in the scenes I have skipped over.
