1. How I did on last week’s goals
Not bad! I wrote my stanza and tinkered with the existing ones a bit. I also thought a bit about how the POVs are supposed to go together, but still not sure. I didn't have time to revisit the Cinderella novel, but I do think I've finally figured out how to write a short story I abandoned years ago. I know, procrastination brain can do wonders for other projects...
2. My goal(s) for this week
- Write another stanza
- Look at the Cinderella novel
- Start (and maybe finish) reading one of the verse novels I borrowed for studying craft
3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised
And in the air, there is not so much /a roar as a buzz - the electricity of wings.
4. The biggest challenge I faced this week.
Not so much time, but finding the energy to write!
5. Something I love about my WiP
It allows me to indulge my love of lyrical prose and really play with the language. I'll have to tone some of it down, of course, and one of my POV characters isn't "pretty prose-y" at all. So it's a good balance and good practice.
How are the rest of you doing on your goals? Good luck this week!
BONUS: World Cup Loki! He and the Sister are cheering for Die Mannschaft (the Team) aka Germany today (and USA, of course)
