Ready, Set, WRITE! Week Four
Ready. Set. WRITE! is a summer writing intensive that encourages goal-setting and accountability, and provides an opportunity for us to cheer each other on wherever we’re at with our writing projects—planning, drafting, revising, or polishing. This year, your RSW hosts are Alison Miller, Jaime Morrow, Erin Funk, Elodie Nowodazkij, and Katy Upperman.
How I did on last week's goals: I set my word count goal at 4K and managed to write 4,500 words!
My goals for this week: Sticking with 4K for my WiP!
I also joined a gym last week, so I'm making a non-writing goal to work out at least 3 days this week. The gym is right near the office where I work, so I've been going on my lunch break.
A favorite line from my story: "No one ever says no to Rita's Water Ice and actually means it."
Biggest challenge this week: Motivation. This is the first week where I wasn't super excited to write some of the necessary scenes. But yesterday I got myself to a place I'm really excited to write about, so hopefully this week will be more fun!
Something I love about my WiP: It's relatable, at least for me. My MC isn't sure what to do after college and feels like her life is just stalling. Thankfully I've found a bit more direction in my own life, but I can relate to a ton of her experiences. She and I are entering the real world together!
How did you all do on your goals this week?
