Week 7. Still no beach. this past week was definitely a challenge week. So let's see how I shaped up, shall we?

How I Did Last Week

  • Work on some business stuff for The Writers' Loft. DONE. For now.
  • Send out 3 more queries. This didn't happen.
  • Get at least halfway through Workshop 9 of PLANNING YOUR NOVEL - completed entire workshop. DONE. I completed the entire workshop.
  • Begin revisions on the last third of SCENES FROM LAST NIGHT. Nope. I had to dial it back and work on the timeline for SFLN first. That, at least, is done.
  • Read. DONE
  • Continue to walk every day, even if it's just to Dunkin and back. Nope. I only managed 4 or 5 days.

My Goal(s) For This Week

  • Continue SCENES FROM LAST NIGHT revisions.
  • Send out 3 queries.
  • Beta a friend's picture book
  • Get up at 5 AM Monday-Friday so I can walk to work before it gets way too hot.
  • Walk every day, even if it's to Dunkin and back.
  • Add voice exercises to Scrivener template.
  • Stretch goal-->Get at least halfway through final workshop of PLANNING YOUR NOVEL.

One Phrase That Sums Up What I Revised

Not quite there yet. I'm identifying some weaknesses in SFLN that I thought I had addressed. Here's hoping I can get these fixed with relative ease.

Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week

Not accounting for time and life. I had a shortened weekend which threw me off my game all week.This week hopefully will go smoother.

Something I Love About My WIP

I still love how fast of a read SFN is and I hope I can maintain that once I complete this revision.

How did you all do this week?
