Ready. Set. Write! (Week 11)

1. How I did on last week’s goals
I managed to write 1 stanza, get a little more sleep, and celebrate my birthday! But there wasn't any swimming and I still didn't start reading a new verse novel. However, I did write a new poem!

2. My goal(s) for this week
Same as last week's!
  • Write 2 more stanzas
  • Start reading a verse novel.
  • Get some more sleep.
  • Go swimming.

3. A favorite line from my story OR one word/phrase that sums up what I wrote/revised.
From the new poem...

It is the liminal moment,
the razor’s edge,
the tip toe waltz.
Where the sky meets the sea
meets a line in the sand.

4. The biggest challenge I faced this week.
Finding time to write. It was my birthday week, so things were a little busier because of that and work is still kind of overwhelming. Hoping things chill out some more. I need the pressure to lift a bit.

5. Something I love about my WiP.
Same things I've said before - playing with voice and mood and poetry. Reading in a new genre/form, etc.

How did you do this week?

beautiful poem! I think swimming is a great goal, too. I need to add it to my own since pretty soon it'll get too cold. Might as well enjoy the rest of the summer!

Alison Miller said...

"the tip toe waltz" <---Love it.

Also, I owe you an email back but I've been swamped. Short story: Your poetry is gorgeous. But I might have said that before...
