Ready. Set. WRITE! Week 11

Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer accountability series that is hosted by Jaime MorrowKaty UppermanAlison MilerErin Funk, and Elodie Nowodazkij. We set goals for the summer and check in weekly.

So these goals things. When I'm not actually doing something creative (like brainstorming The SNI) and focusing on more other side of the brain (like revising), everything crashes to an almost stop. No joke. Plus, this weekend I was at ComiConn at Mohegan Sun because Hubby was doing that joke thing. He killed it. Hopefully, this means he'll get serious about his comedy again.

Also, I get bored at casinos. And claustrophobic on exhibition floors. The things you learn about yourself at the most random times, right?

How I Did Last Week

  • Complete the beta I started last week. I completed 2 rounds of it, but sometimes a third is in order. THAT hasn't happened.
  • Walk every day. 6 out of 7.
  • Complete reading final workshop of PLANNING YOUR NOVEL. DONE. 
  • Stretch goal-->Think about the Assassin Project and the boy band books and formulate a rough revision plan. DONE. This is basically a whole bunch of questions that need answering, but now I know what needs to be done.

My Goal(s) For This Week 

  • Do my final pass on the beta from last week.
  • Begin betaing another friend's manuscript.
  • Walk every day.
  • Fold and put away laundry.
  • Stretch goal--> Continue thinking about revision plan for the boy band book.
  • Additional stretch goal --> Do some research for The SNI.

One Phrase That Sums Up What I Revised 

So. Much. Research.

Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week 

Motivation. The heat and humid of August saps most of my energy, which makes it hard to do much of anything. I mean, hell, I've put a goal of fold laundry for a reason. And it's only a small load!

Something I Love About My WIP

I recently read through the first draft of the boy band book and I love my boy MC's voice. I'm pretty excited to get back into that story.
