Ready. Set. Write! (Week 5)


RSW is a summer writing intensive hosted by Jaime Morrow, Alison Miller, Katy Upperman, and Erin Funk. You can sign up on the linky at any of the host blogs every Monday. Remember to encourage other participants too! For more info on RSW and a link to the lovely buttons, go here.

1. How I did on last week’s goals
Ho-hum. I didn't write a new stanza, though I did tinker around with something else. However, I revised the stanzas I had, working on making the voices more distinct. I read a little more of the verse novel but didn't finish it.

2. My goal(s) for this week

  • Write 2 stanzas
  • Continue working 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.
Not from the verse WIP, but from something I wrote this week:
Maybe distance didn’t make the heart grow fonder, just more desperate.

4. The biggest challenge I faced this week.
As I suspected, finding the time to read/write. With the long weekend (4th of July, yay!) and the World Cup, socializing came a-calling and I could not resist the siren. But I did manage to finish reading 1 book (Ruin & Rising) and write a little.

5. Something I love about my WiP.
Not to do with my verse WiP since I didn't do too much with it this week, but since I was tinkering with an older WiP, I remembered how much I love the characters. Hope to be able to figure out their story in the near future!

How did you do this week?

I really like the line you shared, Alice! I know what you mean about all of the things making it tough to squeeze writing in. Same here. Here's to a less busy, but more productive week for both of us! :D

Congrats on the progress you made even with a busy week.

I understand the World Cup addiction--it's bitten me too. I'll be bummed when it's over.

I love that line! And based on how much I loved last week's too, I'm pretty sure I will LOVE your verse story. So, hurry up and finish it, lol. ;)

Good luck this week! You can do it!

I really love the line you shared. Not surprising since I love all the lines/excerpts you share.

I'm with Alison: Hurry up and finish this verse novel! (No pressure, right? Haha.)

Isn't it great when an old piece comes back to you? The World Cup should be over soon, then we can all get back to writing!

I need to read those books (Ruin and Rising). So many booooks! I'm loving that you are writing in verse. I've read a few and find them so refreshing.

I love your line!

We don't have 4th July over here and I'm not too fussed about the World Cup but Wimbledon has been on and that's my weakness and productive thief. I was planning on writing while I watched the final... yeah, didn't happen. I was glued to the TV!
