Aack! Is it already Monday? Confession: I did terribly at last week’s goals, but I will be faithful and report in the chosen Ready. Set. WRITE! format, regardless.
1. How I did on last week’s goals
Not so well. 🙁 I did write for several days, including on my birthday when I got two hours of “uninterrupted writing time” in a coffee shop as my birthday present. However, that “writing” was a lot of screen-staring and thought-turning-over and plot wishy-washing. Not exactly über productive, but unfortunately necessary. I’ll get there.
2. My goal(s) for this week
I’m going to keep it simple this week. My grand overarching goal is the same: finish the first draft by September. This week’s portion? Write 2,500 words. And brainstorm three versions of the ending from which to pick.
3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week
Finding time to write. It was a welcome challenge, however. Man Cub has as been extra clingy as he goes through a growth spurt, so he’s needed extra attention. Then it was my birthday. And THEN my brother came to visit and I only get to seem him a couple of times a year, so that took priority.
5. Something I love about my WiP
The main character, Mina, is a girl who is talented in a STEM field. This really pushes me as a writer, since I was a word nerd, not a science geek, so I have to really be careful with my research so I can portray her interests acurately, even in a sci-fi book. But I love that about her.
