Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at with our writing projects—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing. This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, Elodie Nowodazkij, and myself. All the details are HERE.
*I missed last week because it was the day after San Diego Comic Con and I was on my way to LA.*
How I did on last week’s goals:
Well, last week I set no goals because I was still out of town. HOWEVER, I was meeting with my screenwriting consultant, so that was very Goal Oriented.
I wrote a blog about Comic-Con, which you can read here if you are interested.
I also began posting video recaps of the Comic-Con experience, and if you are interested, you can click here to watch my YouTube channel.
My Goals This Week:
Writing — Incorporate the feedback from my consultant into my outline and then crank out 20 screenplay pages. This script is REALLY coming together. And after everything I experienced at Comic-Con, I feel like I have a pretty strong grasp on that world.
Reading — Finish the ARC of Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett. You guys all need to put this book on your TBR.
Workout — Get back to my daily cardio, twice weekly strength building sessions.
A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
Since I didn’t really write last week, and didn’t post an update from the previous week, here is something I wrote the week before I left for Comic-Con:
We keep our shit to ourselves. We stick to the list.
You know, Abbie —
Abigail. You know, you will have to trust me just a little if this is going to work.
The biggest challenge I faced this week (ex. finding time to write).
I didn’t write this week, but I didn’t plan to. The thing I struggled with this week was accepting the reality that Comic Con is over. 😉
Something I love about my WiP:
I feel like this is a story worth telling, and I think that is so vital when you are working on a passion project. Believing in your project’s merit, especially when it’s in the revision stage, keeps you pushing through the fear.
