Welcome back to Ready. Set. WRITE! My co-hosts, Alison Miller, KatyUpperman, Jaime Morrow, and I 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 goals were to write another 4000 words on Enlighten and fix a plot problem that was keeping me from finishing a particular scene. I ended up writing 6300 words and worked out the plot issue so I could move on.
●My goals for this week:
I’m aiming for my usual 4000 word goal.
●A favorite line from my story OR a word or phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised:
He swallows hard. “Sometimes when I listen to him talk, I hear these grains of truth, and for a split second I get him. For a split second, I know I could just as easily cross that line to where evil convinces itself it’s good.”
●The biggest challenge I faced this week:
Trying to beat the heat and a massive headache that decided to stick around for days. As far as actual writing, since I’m working on the third book in a trilogy, I’m finding it tricky to come up with fresh ways to describe settings I’ve already used.
●Something I love about my WIP:
That my main characters question their own goodness.
And now for our last giveaway…
