Welcome back to Ready. Set. WRITE! We hope you’re looking forward to another productive summer! If you’re new this year and you’re wondering what RSW is all about, it’s a summer long writing intensive with the purpose of writing, revising, or planning like crazy, plus a way to keep each other accountable. We’ll be sharing our goals on Mondays and keeping our posts brief (2-3 lines per heading tops) in order to maximize our writing time and minimize on blogging. Sign up on the linky at one of the host blogs each week, and remember to hop around to encourage other participants. For more info on RSW and a link to our lovely stash of buttons, click here.
●How I did on last week’s goals:
My goal was to work through half my list of missing details, minor inconsistencies, overused words/gestures, etc. I probably did about 2/3. I also wanted to start compiling my notes on the third book in my trilogy, and I got a nice chunk of that done. Week 1 goals successfully met!
●My goals for this week:
I want to finish my list of fiddly details, research some Romantic era poetry, divide my ms (ENGRAVE) into chapters, rewrite the start of one scene, finish gathering my notes for book 3 (ENLIGHTEN), and start a plot arc diagram. As you can see, I’m in transition between WIPs.
●A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
●The biggest challenge I faced this week :
Maintaining my concentration on the more monotonous aspects of revising/editing.
●Something I love about my WIP:
The theme of Romanticism versus technology.
