I almost missed today's update post, but I forced myself to do it (better late than never) just to keep me responsible!

1. How I did on last week’s goals
Better than last week! I added 2 stanzas in my 3rd POV (the first time it is making an appearance) and added/revised a few lines in the older sections. I also started reading one of the verse novels, specifically Francesca Lia Block's Psyche in a Dress.

2. My goal(s) for this week

  • Write another stanza
  • Work on making the 3 POV voices distinct
  • Finish reading the verse novel.

3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
Light feet. I have known such tender treads.

4. The biggest challenge I faced this week.
Time for writing. It was much busier for me this week since I had a few more social activities than usual, and I had beta notes to write up for a friend.

5. Something I love about my WiP.
Crafting 3 different voices while also indulging my poetic side. It's fun flirting with language, but it does mean I have to work harder to make the 3 POVs sound distinct from one another.

How did you do this week?

Making my 3 POVs distinct is something I know I will have to work on big time in revisions. TOUGH, but I like the challenge. Good luck with yours! Love that line from your story, btw. Have a great week!

You did really well this week, Alice! I would love to attempt multiple POVs, but I'm a total chicken. I'm always amazed by people who totally nail it. Hope this week is just as productive for you!
