Writer Recharge Challenge 2015- Update 1

Writer Recharge is meant to be a four-week jump start in the middle of a cold, dreary winter. Set goals, check in once a week (on Mondays), and connect with other recharging writers. It's hosted by the lovely Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Liz Parker, Elodie Nowodazkij, and Sara Biren.

Here's how I did for Week 1.

Still having trouble getting past my block, so I tinkered around with some other things. Working on getting into a daily writing habit. I did start reading the books I borrowed for the verse story (some poetry and poison), so there's that I guess.

No Hamilton reread yet, but I have made some good progress in reading my 1 book - Marie Lu's THE YOUNG ELITES.

Got my #vlogagram on and blogging.

More sleep goal has been a fail this week. I have, however, scheduled a facial for next weekend!

Hoping to hang out with tweeps next weekend, and must still beta read.

Prep for NYC trip continues! Bought some new luggage bags this weekend at a great price and a fabulous blue coat.

Other Writer Recharge people, how did you do for Week 1? Don't forget to link up here at Sara's Update post.

A fabulous blue coat? Did you already post a pic on IG? Would love to see it! And yay for scheduling a facial...I love those. So relaxing! I have to update my #vlogagram this week. Probably today or tomorrow :) Cheering you on for your goals this week!

I agree with Elodie -- share pictures of this fabulous blue coat! Loved your vlogagram post on characters. Your taste is excellent as usual. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on YOUNG ELITES. I've seeing lots of positive buzz. Best of luck with the writing this week, Alice!

Sleep is always a problem for me. But once I get caught up I should be rearing to go! Good luck!

When I started teaching, I had to force myself to set a sleep schedule because it turns out teaching isn't something I want to do on four or five hours of sleep. Now I've gotten to the point where I can't function on less than six or seven hours. It's definitely a goal worth continuing to work on :)

Have fun packing for your trip!

Ooh, a facial. Now that I can get behind (unlike the pedicure I'm terrified of) as long as I don't have to go anywhere else for 24 hours.

Here's to a wonderful, productive week with lots of sleep.
