This summer I'm participating in Ready. Set. WRITE! 2015, a summer writing intensive & blog link-up hosted by these five fabulous ladies: Jamie, Katy, Erin, Elodie, & Alison. You can follow along on Twitter, too. Check out the hashtag #RSWrite!
Week 3 Accomplishments & Week 4 Goal Setting
HOW I DID ON LAST WEEK'S GOALS
Write for 1 hour Monday - Saturday | I didn't technically do this. I wrote for an hour Monday and Tuesday, skipped Wednesday, did an hour of plotting on Thursday, skipped Friday, wrote for an hour & a half on Saturday, and spent ~ 2 hours plotting on Sunday. So, not exactly my goal, but still the amount of work I wanted done; I didn't fight the feeling when I needed to plan a little more before writing again on the weekend. Sunday's planning has (I hope) set me up well for this week, too.
MY GOALS FOR THIS WEEK
- Write for one hour on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday; write for 3 hours on the weekend.
- Read a chapter of a book every night before bed.
- Unpack what I can (because how do we have so much stuff still in boxes?).
ONE WORD/PHRASE THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE or FAVORITE LINE FROM WHAT I WROTE
Identities. | This is a very old project that has had new life breathed into it with a lot of time off spent writing other things. After some of this week's planning, I feel like this story is really emerging from it's original shell and becoming something new, and with that are new identities and back stories for my characters. (Actually, I'm not sure my original characters really had back stories in the face of the ones I've outlined and imagined this past week.)
THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED LAST WEEK
Finding an hour every day to write. While I didn't accomplish my goal exactly how I set out to do it, I did learn a lot about how I manage my time, and that knowledge should help me accomplish more this week.
