●How I did on last week’s goals:
Last week I went with my usual goal of 4000 words and my word count ended up being 5600. I also realized after I posted that I forgot to include another goal, and that was to format my manuscript, Engrave, and send it off to Jaime for some sisterly critiquing. Formatting is a royal pain, but I got it done, and hopefully Jaime had the chance to take a peek on her flight to Paris.
●My goals for this week:
My husband is on holidays for the next week, so I have no clue how much writing I'll get done. I know I'll have a chunk of time while the boys are off at a football game this weekend, but that seems like putting all my words in one basket. I think I'll skip a goal and play it by ear. No pressure this week.
●A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
Her hair falls in a curtain around his face, shielding him from everything and everyone but her.
●The biggest challenge I faced this week:
This was a busy week—appointments, date night, the hubby’s birthday—so time was a factor. I also had to rewrite a scene that wasn’t turning out the way I wanted. There’s a lot going on in it in terms of emotion, information, and a major crisis. Getting the pacing and order of everything right is proving to be tough. Grrr.
●Something I love about my WIP:
My favourite secondary character has his own romantic storyline in this WIP, and I’m enjoying writing that so much it makes me giddy. He deserves a little action.
